Atlanta is a lot of things, among that being New South. I noticed lots of non-Southern accents (?), but a lot of visually beautiful things from the past century as well as the 21st century. Buckhead, obviously, has money and is a world away from downtown, from the King Center or Carter Center. But it is something to thing about, unlike Balston in DC which seems contrived.
Or you can just go to Fellini’s Pizza or La Fonda for a nice meal.
