p.s. This page was born out of a few Birmingham friends visiting Atlanta and asking me what to do + eat while staying. All are subject to change at any time.

Best Burger
I’m from Texas {the beef capital}, so I take this seriously. King + Duke has the best burger I’ve put these manicured hands on. The meat is dry-aged and melt-in-your-mouth good.

Best Pizza
Locally, Fellini’s Pizza is where it’s at {founded in Atlanta in the 80’s}.

Best Florist
TWELVE Florist and Boutique are in a league all their own. The arrangements will mesmerize {last year was their 20 anniversary}.

Best Hotel
Of course the St. Regis and once you see it you’ll know why. Other options that are more budget friendly: W Buckhead and Midtown locations, Westin Downtown.


Best Facial
Natural Body Spa Buckhead {I cannot speak for other locations}

Best Makeup Artists
Woo Skincare and Cosmetics

Best Manicure and Pedicure {+ all-round rock star salon I’ve frequented for 10+ years of living in Atlanta} Hammond Nails & Spa at Chastain Square 

Best Spray Tan
I only trust Alicia at Spray Studio. Booking is easy and the sunless tanning products are made of all-natural, vegan, cruelty-free ingredients.

Hands down, Piedmont Park because ya got Park Tavern throwing sweet shindigs for every holiday under the sun.

Best Park for the Kiddos
Brook Run Park…there’s something for everyone, including the Treetop Quest which is pretty cool. I haven’t done it yet, but Winston did and it was a blast.

Best Casual Dining {to not overwhelm I’ll leave this at 3 always…AND clearly I like tacos for my casual dining}

Best Margarita…I’m a connoisseur, and well, from Texas…though I can’t claim fame to the “Texas Marg” … my fave remains: Tacos & Tequilas
