This has been a local ATL hotspot for ages and it's less than a quarter mile from the house! No A/C and no inside seating, so I would recommend getting it to go. Cheap southern staples and I would recommend their pork chops over anything else.

A new neighborhood gem! Loads of popcorn and candy varieties. They also do baskets and tins for that person in your life you just don't know how to buy for. Poppa Corn's is locally owned and operated by our friend and neighbor Keith Forrester. If you go in please tell him we sent you!

Great place to get locally sourced handmade gifts including clothes, jewelry, candles, soaps, etc. If your visiting ATL I'm sure you are going back home to someone who would truly love a gift made in the area as opposed to China.

Essentials

There are several options for groceries/essentials within 1-2 miles. We have listed a few of our favorites below.
Parking here can be kind of a zoo so I would suggest parking next to the drive through pharmacy. It's on the left hand side of the building if your looking at the front door. Of course it's close enough to walk or ride your bike as well.

If you prefer the southern grocery shopping treatment and don't mind paying a bit more for employees who earn fair wages and nice wide clean isles that are always stocked, then I would suggest visiting our neighborhood Publix. Where shopping truly is a pleasure.

Sometimes you just need someplace close to grab a six pack. That's Zees. It's around the corner, has a decentish selection of beer and spirits and is open late. If your looking for a bigger selection of craft beers at a better price then I would suggest checking out Kroger.

This local market is located in the heart of the Kirkwood business district so if you're already in the area grabbing a bite to eat at The Pullman or getting a cup of coffee at Taproom then this might be a good place to stop and pick up some essentials. The owner of this establishment also owns Square Pub in Decatur so they have premade meals brought in daily that you can take out and eat at home. This place is definitely cozy but has what you need to get through to your next big grocery run all while feeling good about supporting a locally owned and operated business.

Entertainment & Activities

Whale Sharks, Sea Lions, and Dolphins, OH MY!!! Georgia Aquarium is a world class aquarium and gets visitors from all over the world. TIP: If you get a chance go see the secret viewing area in the cafeteria upstairs. If all the doors are closed test them out to see if one is unlocked. From there you can see the backside of the whale shark tank and the backside of the beluga whale tank. Usually a lot less crowded and a great opportunity to interact with the animals and take pictures.

The Center for Puppetry Arts is the nation’s largest organization dedicated to the art form of puppetry. The Center focuses on three areas: performance, education and museum. It is one of the few puppet museums in the world. If you buy a ticket to see one of the daily shows it comes with a ticket to a workshop where you can make your own puppet. The new Jim Henson exhibit is one of a kind.
