My husband has a conference in Atlanta this weekend and Im tagging along.
I am looking for things to do during the day (by myself) and restaurants/ jazz clubs/ cover band bars to go to at night. I have a few questions.
1- Should I rent a car? Is is safe convenient to take the train during the day by myself? Are there a lot of sketchy neighborhoods I should avoid.
2- Does anyone have resaturant reccomendations? I would like to do a nice romantic restaurant 1 night, there seems to be a lot of posts about Banchanallia and a southern restaurant
(anything that locals like) another night
3- For nightlife, I was thinking of going to Blind Willies one night for Jazz and then to either an upscale club/bar (hip-hop is ok, but we prefer upscale/comfortable atmosphere... not too crowded, not too may kids etc...) I am also interested in cover bands, we like top 40 and 80's music. Does anyone know of a good cover band spot?
4- Also, my husbands conference is in the convention center area, but I am reading that this neighborhood is pretty quiet at night. what is a central location where we can get everywhere relatively quickly?
5- What are the best fine arts museums in Atlanta? I'm more interested in fine art than history museums.And can you take public tranportation to the zoo or botanical gardens?
