Downtown Atlanta is truly one of the most beautiful ventures able to be taken in Georgia; as a bustling city, experience the same ambiance as New York City, travel the running MARTA trains, and too play, wander, and eat in our famous Centennial Olympic Park! Surrounding the park is three of the most famous/ tourist site buildings in Georgia: the famous Coca- Cola Factory, the Georgia Aquarium, and CNN News Station; all able to be toured for under thirty dollars.

2. Visit Your Favorite Film Site

Part of the reason for Atlanta's quick growth is our new popularity in being the site of several world famous television and movie programs. For fanatics, taking a weekend and walking the same streets and corners as your pictured favorites can bring nostalgia and cool recreated photos; a great time for bringing together friends and meeting new people with similar interests. One site is that of the lobby of the Atlanta Marriott Marquis hotel, serving at the high- tec training area in the world famous "Hunger Games" and "Hunger Games: Catching Fire." Popular television show sites are parts of actual towns in Georgia, such as "The Walking Dead" and "The Vampire Diaries." Visiting is completely free, and tours cost under $25.

3. Explore Unique Restaurants

Taking a break from your normal "coffee and bagel" routine to spice it up with a visit to one of Atlanta's most popular eateries is a great time for friends and family to get together, or for a great, long needed relaxation. One of Atlanta's most popular restaurants, the Sun Dial, is completely glass and sits on top of the Westin Hotel, seven hundred and twenty three feet up, that rotates slowly as you eat, giving you a complete view of the city both in the day and in the night. Others include the various mom and pop shops mostly centered in Little Five Points that could be prove to be a great photographic adventure.

Doing Nothing All Summer Is Okay Too

It's okay to have no plans this summer.


Summer seems to roll around faster and faster every year and the question that's always asked is"what are you doing this summer?" Some people love to answer this question, maybe they have a trip planned to backpack across Europe or have a 2-week vacation in the Bahamas. My point is, everyone seems to have these big summer plans. Some people spend the whole summer traveling and are never even home, but there are always gonna be some people who, like me, have absolutely no plans this summer.

Do I wish I was traveling across Europe or spending a few weeks in the Bahamas? Sure. But in reality, my summer plans include working 5 or 6 days a week. I'm not ashamed of this and I wouldn't say I'm jealous of those traveling because I'm still determined to make the best of my summer.

There is so much pressure everywhere on Instagram and Snapchat to post all the fun things you're doing and to capture the moment. This creates the pressure that you always have to be doing something fun or spontaneous.

Summer should be whatever you want it to be. If you want to spend every day at the beach, do it. If you want to spend every day in bed or at home, that's good too. We all have different definitions of fun.

Summer has just started and everyone should make the most of their summer in their own way. My friends and I always make a bucket list of all the things we want to do by the end of the summer. None of it involves traveling or much planning, it's just little things we can do when we get bored.

Don't feel jealous when you see other people traveling this summer. Make your own fun plans, make a bucket list, and make the most of every day this summer.
