Atlanta “Jawja,” oh how we love ya! Sometimes you just need a quick trip to get your share of Black culture and life. And well, this is the perfect place to get it.

If you are in need of a quick getaway to Atlanta or if you are a resident and need a cute staycation, we’ve got you covered. Here are a few suggestions on how to navigate a short stay in ATL.

Book a stay at a nice hotel in downtown

This downtown hotel is housed in what is said to be Atlanta’s very first skyscraper, built in 1906. The decor is vintage-luxe with an amazing marble staircase that is sure to be worthy of a few photos.

Eat at some of the country’s best Black-owned restaurants

You can’t go to Atlanta and not indulge in a few of the many Black-owned restaurants there. No matter your taste, there is something for you.

Here are some of our favs:

Catch a show, sporting event, or relax at a spa

Of course, what you decide to choose will depend on the sole purpose of your trip. You may be going to meet new people. If that’s the case catching a baseball game at the new Braves stadium, a football game at the newly built Falcons stadium or a basketball game at Phillips Arena is the move.

For a little bit of pampering, Iwi Fresh Farm-to-Skin Spa is your spot. This Black-owned day spa offers facials, massages, as well as hot shaves while using natural farm-to-table ingredients and products.

Finally, you can always catch live music or a concert here. After all, Atlanta is home to some of the world’s top entertainers. For a little turn up, check out 21 Atlanta to see where you can catch the city’s young Black professionals that night or weekend.
