If you know anything about me, you’ll know I have a quirky side. So, when I YouTube’d things to do in Atlanta, visiting Ponce City Market was one of them. Though it was a last-minute visit, I wanted to see what this all in one place had to offer. From clothes stores, to bars, restaurants and the ‘how it all works’ 4th floor I stumbled on, only to realize I didn’t have a card to swipe into work. Ponce City Market gave me a vintage – slightly upmarket feel.
There is something for everyone
The city market has both family vibe, and a place if you want to just chill or hang out with friends. One thing to bear in mind are the restaurants/bar areas, which was really crowded. The Food Hall in general, is busy and you’ll be lucky to get a seat. However, we are in summertime and with Atlanta being hot, it’s likely to gain more crowds.
Californian Hot Dog as recommended by the waiter!
I also imagined it to be -one of the less touristic things to see, on my to do list. Either way, you can splash out or watch the world go by, on the park benches outside.
I took my search seriously when looking for the top things to do in Atlanta. Though I’m staying with family…well, we’ve all been guilty of not seeing what’s under our nose in our hometown, so i had to make sure!
World of Coca Cola was a re-occurring theme that caught my eye. I had no idea that what I drink from time to time, was birthed in Atlanta. Knowing that the next time I drink Coke, Fanta or Sprite (favourite of mine), I can say I was where it all began and tried, I did try, and taste up to the 100+ flavours from around the world!
I still can’t get over the belvedere taste in fact Europe, surprised me! All is well, as South East Asia won the race, Africa didn’t do bad too. I still think about that belvedere taste, and it’s probably a good thing I don’t remember the other neighbouring countries within the continent. So, I’m taking this Coke thing a little seriously, but you’ll be surprised…and you had to have been there. Overall, Germany’s Coke beverage was nice and Japan without a doubt, was the best. Always the first in everything. Thailand gets a thumbs up too! So now that we’ve got the flavours out the way.
What is this secret formula?
Well, if we knew, then Coke wouldn’t be what it is today and that’s what makes the USA so great. However your celebrating do it well, and Happy Independence Day!
