6. High Museum of Art
Some people think it’s cliché to be a regular attendee of your city’s main art museum. The High, if it actually could, would slap some cool into you for not being aware that they have a highly popular monthly live jazz event, incredible shows ranging from Dalí to Basquiat, gallery talks with some of our smartest, artsiest neighbors, and free days for residents.
5. The Big Chicken
There’s a reason you see this big wooden bird painted, sewn, stitched, screen-printed, and carved into every medium of arts/crafts imaginable at summer and fall festivals. It’s ridiculous, therefore it is Atlanta.
4. Zoo Atlanta
We have more pandas than a fake Future, and you should go meet their cute little selves, along with all the other amazing animals that live in Grant Park. Try not to let the jealousy of them having a home in such a fantastic area get to you.
