Conner and Mandy met in Atlanta and have created many memories there. The resources we have listed below are places we enjoy visiting and we are sure you will too.
Braves play here! Conner loves baseball. Mandy has fond memories of going to games with the major men in her life- her dad and her fiancé. Braves games have always been an adventure and have certainly led to some interesting times in the ball park.
Atlantic Station is our go-to location for date night. It has everything from a bowling alley to shopping to movies. Atlantic Station also features Kilwin’s, a sweet shop, where Conner and Chad (groomsman) used to work.
Conner and Mandy fell in love with the BeltLine in the Spring of 2010. We were looking for a place to exercise that extended beyond the area around Conner’s house (The Pink Panther). We found the Beltline off of Collier Road, but quickly discovered that it was a historic trail of 22 miles. Check it out!
Chow Baby is a create-your-own-stir-fry restaurant. You create your meal, so no complaints. Actually, if you do not like what you made, just go back for round 2, or 3, or….well you get the point. This restaurant is a favorite for Conner and Mandy, but our parents too. There is something for everyone at Chow Baby.
Who can resist penguins in their cute little built-in tuxes? Conner and I have visited the Georgia Aquarium multiple times. The one that sticks out the most is the McKenney’s Christmas party at the Aquarium. The Georgia Aquarium is conveniently located next to Centennial Park, which features the Olympic rings and the seasonal skating rink that we have frequented during Christmas time.
Piedmont Park has always been a favorite place for Conner and Mandy to go to. The park is perfect for a Sunday afternoon stroll or a picnic. There is also a swimming pool that we have enjoyed visiting in the past.
Conner and Mandy love trying new restaurants, but also going to old favorites. One restaurant that stands out is Rocky Mountain. This restaurant is your typical college pizzeria complete with beer and trivia. If you go, we suggest the Allen’s Wing pizza!
