Centennial Olympic Park. is a great place to take the kids! or go down by yourself! or take your significant other. You can have a picnic in the shade.
Or you can go to Legal Seafood. Our trick is sharing. I recommend the Clam Chowder, get a cup, it is delicious! We split the Fish and Chips, spicy, it wasn’t very spicy but it was really awesome. The fish was so fresh and fried perfectly.
The kids can play in the fountain, bring a towel!
When all is done, try SkyView. It truly is fun!
It is not scary (there is a “panic” button just in case) The views are great!
It really has grown into a great destination in Atlanta. Let me know what kind of fun you have in the park.
This months full moon coincides with its perigee (when it’s closest to the earth during its orbit). So, it will appear super large on the horizon.
Pair that with the June summer solstice when the sun cuts its highest path in the sky, a smathering of atmospheric dust & pollution and the whole thing will give off an amber or “honey” hue.
So, hopefully the sky will be clear tonight and we will have a spectacular view!
(Happy Birthday Ella! Love you so! Special day for a special person!)
King of Pops pops up everywhere! They are awesome. Have you tried them?
This Golden goes to work with his Dad everyday! At lunch they get walk together through the park. Pretty cool, huh?
Hello Beluga Whales. Aren’t they just so beyond words, peaceful, omnipresent, joyous! There is such a strong connection with these gentle mammals.
When we first arrived we were informed the Dolphin Tales Show was about to start in 15 minutes.
We got in and found three seats up top in the middle. The show is pretty amazing. The dolphin are truly awesome. You have to see this it will give you chills. Admission to the show is included in your admission to the Aquarium. (Quick tip: Go to the kiosks outside to purchase your tickets. It is much quicker.)
Then we decided to go Ocean Voyager. Lucked out again, they were about to feed the whale sharks! So you are in an acrylic tunnel and these humongous sharks are all swimming above you, it is so cool! But, that wasn’t enough for us we wanted to go up top and see what goes on behind the scenes. You can do this too, there are two tours for this area. One is for 20 minutes and the other is for an hour. We opted for the 20 minutes, so worth it!
There is so much to see and do at the Aquarium. Take the kids go this summer. Have a blast and let me know what you think!
Oh, you can pet and touch a lot of creatures too!
El Senor Taco on Buford Highway has great mexican fare. Quesadillas, tacos, seafood soup a salsa bar and it’s all very good. What I find craveable though are the shrimp tacos. The fish tacos are very good but the shrimp tacos are the BEST! You have to order the chips separately, but they are really great too and fresh.
This is obviously Chamblee City Hall. Across the street is my favorite furniture consignment shop,Consignment Furniture Depot. If you need a new dining room table and chairs or sofa, bedroom, outdoor furniture or a greeting card (yes, they really have them too) I had to walk off my lunch from Southbound, the shrimp and grits, so onto The Ice House, next door.This place rocks, it has a little bit of everything interesting. I don’t know if you’ve seen the retro looking refrigerators they sell now, well, they sell them here. They have cool totes and lots of collectables. I love this bar. Let me know what you think…
All up and down Peachtree Rd. (in Chamblee) are Antique Stores filled to the brim with treasures! Here’s what the fox said.
Took that with my iphone.
Then took the long trek to the end of the road across from a really cool cemetery. Was this place
They make all kinds of furniture and frames and really cool items from reclaimed wood. They have cool metal flowers and all kinds of interesting stuff. It’s a fun Staycation in Chamblee. Down the other end of the road is Maison Robert Chocolates, whoa, that will take a whole other day.
Check out Historic Chamblee, my final stop was here.Chamblee Bistro, is a comfy little sandwich shop. Great sandwiches, and the best brownies ever. That is what the sign said, I took the challenge and I agree, it is the best! I cannot wait to hear what you think!
