It’s gotta be discussed at some point. I’m here because I love coffee and I love to travel. Ideally? I like to drink cups of coffee amidst my travels. So, what do you do when you’re NOT traveling? In my opinion, it’s impossible to completely fulfill that lust for new things, unless you’re actually in the airport or on a train, knowing you’re en route to your next foreign destination. However, I did come up with a couple simple tricks on how to soothe the pain, beginning with becoming a tourist in your own city. For example, I was born and raised in San Francisco and admittedly never took my first trip to Alcatraz until the summer of 2015. I was blown away with the history and wonderment of this little island that tourists flock to see. That’s a more obvious “miss.” Now that I have been living in Atlanta for three years, I have started to feel that need to move on again.
In attempts to soothe my wanderlust I came up with a list of major attractions, and a list of minor attractions. I am giving myself 30 days to fulfill this list. I’ll even add a hashtag #MaaeahInAtlanta. The major attractions will include museums, attractions and historical sites. The minor attractions will include coffee shops.
What are you favorite places to visit in Atlanta? I openly welcome suggestions!
- National Center for Civil and Human Rights
- Fernbank Museum of Natural History
- Anne Frank Exhibit (This one is in Sandy Springs not Atlanta proper)
- Center for Puppetry Arts
- Taking suggestions for my fifth major attraction 🙂
- West Egg Cafe
- Octane Coffee
- Dancing Goats Coffee Bar
- Joe’s East Atlanta Coffee Shop
- Once again, suggestions please!
Side Note: I will strictly be trying black brewed coffee, maybe with some almond milk if it is available. I am also currently fulfilling my goals of a lifestyle change, and completing the Whole 30 challenge. I feel great, but am desperately missing sugar and cream! Oh…and cheese. Definitely cheese.
Lastly, thank you to my niece Jaidah, whose face completely captures the feeling I discussed.
