City Guide: Summer in ATL

We have loved the last four weeks together and are sad to see our summer gatherings come to a close. But there is still plenty of summer left. And in Atlanta, there are so many ways to enjoy this season. So, for those of you who may not be familiar with this beautiful city, we've prepared a checklist of sorts to help you fill the next month with fun. We look forward to seeing you back at The Living Room (at Buckhead Church) on August 25 and are excited to hear about your summer adventures.

Center for Civil and Human Rights

Center for Civil and Human Rights

Atlanta has a new gem to check out– the brand new Center for Civil and Human Rights. Be sure to bring your student ID for a discount on your ticket.
King of Pops

King of Pops

If you were at our last gathering this summer you've already checked this one off your list. King of Pops is a local popsicle vendor that, in a few short years, has taken the streets and our tastebuds by storm.
The High Museum

The High Museum

Visit The High this summer and you'll find that dream cars of old are ...still dreamy. The High is free to Fulton residents on the first Saturday of each month (Which is THIS weekend– bring your drivers license or student ID and show up before 1PM). They also offer a student discount on all other days.
Atlanta Street Food Fest

Atlanta Street Food Fest

Want to try every single food truck in the city, but don’t have the time to track them all down? This is your opportunity to stuff yourself full of every single taco, sandwich, and fried piece of goodness that our four-wheeled food professionals sling. July 12 in Piedmont Park.
Arabia Mountain

Arabia Mountain

Are you and your friends looking for a new, unique place to go for an easy hike? Arabia Mountain may be just the place.
Barbeque, Blues, & Bluegrass Festival

Barbeque, Blues, & Bluegrass Festival

Into bluegrass music? BBQ? Both? Mark your calendar for August 16, and don’t miss the 14th Annual Decatur Barbeque, Blues, & Bluegrass Festival, at Harmony Park in Decatur.
Starlight Drive-In

Starlight Drive-In

Grab some friends, a cooler of snacks and Coke, and head to Starlight Six for a throwback movie going experience. (SUVs work best for groups– back into the space and pop open the trunk.)

There are also plenty of better known Atlanta staples you should keep in mind– like the Braves and Music Midtown. Or year-round attractions like the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, the new Atlanta SkyView, Zoo Atlanta, the Historic Oakland Cemetery, or Atlanta's beautiful public parks. Basically, you have no excuse to be bored this summer.
