ATLANTApix: Things to Do in Atlantic Station

There's so much going on there, I find myself rather anxious to get back to Atlantic Station...the "mini city" that popped up out of nowhere during the years I was living in Washington, D.C.

I was there just a few months ago to see Cirque du Soleil's "Ovo," which was fantastic! They also have, for the summer, "Bodies...The Exhibition," which I saw in Washington, D.C. (Rosslyn, Virginia), a phenomenal experience and and incredible learning excursion.

What I've not seen that's there is "Dialogue in the Dark." It's an experience of what it's like to be blind and the exhibit is led by visually-impaired docents. It's designed to increase awareness and challenge prejudices.

There's also free movies every Thursday night, a "Movies in the Park" program. Some of the upcoming films include: Jurassic Park, The Wizard of Oz, The Hangover, and Pretty Woman.

And of course the gateway to Atlantic Station, The Millennium Gate (photo), is phenomenal in its own right, but it's also a museum, which I highly recommend touring. It's comprehensive in its coverage of Atlanta history and it even has a few high-tech features that are sure to please.

I of course can't forget to mention the great shopping and the delicious dining. Rosa Mexicano is a personal favorite. And one of my dear friends, who happens to be from Mexico City, tells me that it's very close to authentic Mexican cuisine...and I love their table-side guacamole service!

ATLANTApix and ATLANTAvidz of the tourATLANTA blog features a daily photo or video relative to Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
