6th Annual Hands Together at Flatrock Music and Arts Festival
Join the Frist Center's Community Engagement Team for a full day of multicultural music and arts in Coleman Park on Thompson Lane. The festival celbrates the diversity
Plenty of Nashvillians spend time, whether for business, pleasure or just to get in a little shopping, in the Southeast’s “big city.” Some go frequently and possibly are accustomed to visiting tried and true places to stay, eat and shop. But, as with any thriving metropolis, there is always something new happening.
While Mid-town Atlanta has been a desirable location for some time, you still cannot beat the convenience and access when choosing a place to stay. Multiple hotels are scattered here due to the simple trek to the office or shopping districts, but there is only one that truly pampers visitors. Four Seasons has an international reputation for wowing guests and bringing pleasurable experiences to even the most discriminating traveler. Their Atlanta location is repeatedly named one of the top hotels in the South, and for good reason. A posh lobby and lounge and dreamy rooms are standard. The service really is over the top, with even the valets making you feel as if you’ve truly “arrived.”
The very best bedding and bath design is at the heart of what makes the stay comfortable and luxurious, but this hotel truly extends a home-base that is tough to leave. The Park 75 Restaurant is one of the most celebrated in the city, and the adjacent lounge filled with comfy sofas and private gathering areas is as much fun to visit for celebrity spotting as it is to sample their crowd-pleasing cocktails.

The concierge can direct you to the nearby Atlantic Station, where shopping is always a pleasure, and a direct shot down Peachtree leads to both Phipps Plaza and Lenox Square Malls in Buckhead. Along the way, boutiques and specialty retail abound. You can find anything from a rare light fixture to a one-of-a-kind designer frock. The shopping really is a serious sport.
