Atlanta Bucketlist

Atlanta Bucketlist

As I’ve started documenting my time here in ATL, I realized what I really should do is make a huge list of all of the things I have wanted to do since I’ve been here – everything from historical sites, to bars and restaurants, to museums, to quirky Southern experiences. I wanted an easy way to tie in my life here with my blog, and I feel like this is a great way to help my readers go on my journey with me 🙂

That said, here is my bucket list of things to do in Atlanta, and the things that I still need to do!
