40 Things To See And Do In Atlanta (17 Of Them Are FREE!)

Jan 16, 2014

I've been looking up a bunch of date night ideas lately for me and my boyfriend to switch things up and try something new - mainly because it's one of the things I plan on working to be better at in 2014 (you can check out the full list here). Who doesn't love a fun date night involving something neither of you have done before? 
Oh, and we live very much on a budget so a lot of these things to do are FREE:)

I am all about new experiences so I'm always looking for something to do or making lists of what we should do in the future.

Of course, living in a tiny suburb of Atlanta (I say tiny but really it's actually growing pretty quickly...not sure how I feel about that yet) means most of the things I come up with have something to do with the city or the general metro area. I thought this would be a fun list to share with all of you in case anyone lives in the area or for someone who may be traveling to Atlanta in the future - it's a pretty decent list of things to see and do around town including some GREAT date night ideas :)
