Shopping Guide to Atlanta

Atlanta is the Southern version of New York City, mixing cultural diversity with southern-city
charm. As the capitol of the South, the city also leads the pack when it comes
to style. With great shops in it’s Buckhead section and top outlet malls through
out the metro area, you’re guaranteed to find plenty of reasons to shop.

 

Atlanta Shopping Tips

    1. Head to Buckhead.
      This part of town offers the ultimate shopping for fashionistas. Sip tea outdoors
      at one of the area’s many restaurants and admire southern style.

 

  • Head to Luxe
    Sale Events
    . This Atlanta boutique (at 5,600 sq feet it’s more
    like a mini department store), holds frequent sample sales and sale events
    on bags from Tods, Jimmy Choo and vintage pieces from the likes of Pucci for
    up to 60-80% retail price. For more information call: (404) 869-2493 Address: 764 Miami Cir NE

 

 

  • Scope
    out the outlets
    . There are several great outlet
    malls near Atlanta. One of our favorite is the Discover
    Mills
    outlets where you can find the outlets of Neiman Marcus, Levi, Saks
    Fifth Avenue and more. Also check out the North Georgia Premium Outlets.

 

 

  • All roads lead
    to Peachtree.
    This is very weird, but there are several roads, streets,
    etc. named Peachtree! Purchase a map and save yourself a headache.

 

 

  • Visit No
    Mas
    . If unique furniture is your game, head to No Mas Productions
    for high-quality, fashionable goods.

 

 

  • Mall of Georgia.
    The biggest mall in the southeast has everything you have at home, except
    it’s bigger. Worth a trip if you like malls.

 

 

  • Dress cool.
    Wear cool, lightweight clothing during the summer months because it gets super
    hot (hence the nickname “Hot-Lanta”).

 

 

  • Bring cash and
    credit/debit cards
    . While many places in Atlanta do accept personal
    checks, it’s always good to be prepared.

 

 

  • Be on your best
    behavior
    . Folks are polite. So even if you are a curmudgeon, try
    something new during your stay. Try smiling and saying hello to a few strangers
    during your stay.
  • Visit the Virginia Highlands. Readers of TBF highly recommend this area for its unique shops, dining, and nightlife. It’s one of the oldest parts of the city.
