Atlanta, Atlantic Station

A mix of residential and retail space, the multi-use $2 billion development encompassing 138 acres may well be the biggest thing to happen to Atlanta in years. Once home to a steel mill, Atlantic Station now courts serious shoppers. Ikea was the original magnet for city dwellers, but chains like Dillard's, West Elm, Banana Republic and DSW are additional draws. Regal Cinema and restaurants like Fox Sports Grill make this a one-stop destination.

This destination rocks! Somewhat a little like Disney World, but a beautiful diamond in the rough. Very clean, well-lit, and something new is opening all the time. Some very good restaurant/bars-The Grape, Rosa Mexicano,Lobby At Twelve, and Dolce.. Dillard's is a god send for us people who live in-town, since the Downtown Rich's and Macy's closed a few years back. Home accessories-check out Z-Gallerie and West Elm. If you can afford a condo here, lucky you. Underground covered parking a plus, two free hours, and just a great place to walk around on the weekends, especially with the free concerts in the Central Park area. Oh did I mention the wonderful Regal-16 movie theater, don't have to drive all the way to Phipp's and that terrible Buckhead traffic. Again, the place rocks, and the Swedish Ikea store does also.
