Atlanta, Georgia

I took a 4 day trip to Atlanta, GA with my friend Cassie, mainly to attend the inaugural 2-day country music festival called Shaky Boots. The festival was absolutely amazing and I know it will become a huge event in the future after their success this year. There were a ton of artists there but the shows I personally attended were by Jana Kramer, Josh Thompson, Joe Nichols, Kip Moore, The Band Perry, Dierks Bentley, Blake Shelton, Eli Young Band, Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore, Rascal Flatts, and Brad Paisley. Such great performances!!

We stayed in the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead and it was such an incredible stay. Everyone was so welcoming and sweet - southern hospitality is a real thing! We stayed on the 24th floor - their Grand Club floor - and having club access proved to be such a convenient service.

On our last day in Atlanta, we went exploring. We headed to the Atlantic Station and tried a fried chicken sandwich from Chick-a-Biddy. Chick-Fil-A ain't got nothing on this place! Atlantic Station was a really nice place for shopping, dining, and just a really cool atmosphere overall. Then we headed to the Georgia Aquarium which is the largest in the world! Unfortunately we didn't get to see the beluga whales because there was a newborn beluga and Maris needed time to bond with her mother. But we got to see whale sharks which are considered the biggest fish!

We walked around Centennial Olympic Park but it was a bit rainy. We made our way to the Westin Peachtree Plaza which is a very tall, cylindrical building.  You can pay $8 to go up to the 72nd floor and see the city of Atlanta from up top. The building doesn't look to be very high but when you're up there, it seems like you're in the clouds. The view was killer.

Thanks for the memz, Atlanta!
