A Love Letter to Atlanta


A Love Letter to Atlanta

Dear Atlanta, 

We can’t help but rave about your eclectic style, diverse dining, and tree-lined streets. While there are about a million and one things we love about you, below we’ve singled out some of our favorites. From date night restaurants to romantic strolls here is a list of our favorite places and spaces around the city. In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, we hope they provide you with ideas for planning a special day with your loved one and a touch of nostalgia.

Favorite Museum

Bob’s Pick: Fernbank Museum

This is a museum of natural history that boasts collections catered to every member of the family. With its “Giants of the Mesozoic” dinosaur exhibit and a wonderful “Walk Through Time in Georgia,” the Fernbank is full of cultural treasures.


Cathy’s Pick: High Museum of Art

The High Museum of Art is the largest museum for visual art in the Southeastern United States. Their collections range from Monet to Tournier to Tiepolo, along with many traveling installations. They also host a wide array of events—our favorite being Friday Night Jazz events held on the 3rd Friday of each month.


Favorite Boutique

Bob’s Pick: Amazon (LOL)

Perhaps not for every occasion, but Amazon is a great option if you’re looking for variety and prefer to avoid shopping in-person. 


Cathy’s Pick: Boxwood Gardens

Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a friend, sprucing up your garden, shopping for home decor, or simply in need of a little floral pick-me-up—Boxwood Gardens has it all! Their spring collection has just arrived, and we can’t wait to pay a visit.


Favorite Hike/Park

Bob’s Pick: Amicalola Falls State Park & Lodge

This state park is home to some of the most stunning trails across Atlanta and offers a variety of lodging from campsites to modern cabins. However, you won’t want to miss Georgia’s tallest waterfall measuring at an impressive 729 feet high.


Cathy’s Pick: Chattahoochee River Trails

With over a dozen trails along the Chattahoochee River, we can’t pick just one! So make sure to visit the Chattahoochee River National Recreation area and add a few of these hikes to your summer bucket list.


Favorite Florist

Bob’s Pick: Costco

A budget-friendly floral option that also requires little planning. From Valentine’s roses to special arrangements, Atlanta’s Costco always has fresh flowers on display and the quality (like all of Costco’s items) is top-notch. 


Cathy’s Pick: Michal Evans Florist

This is the go-to place for upscale floral arrangements. The florists here have quite an artistic eye and are always compiling the most stunning bouquets and arrangements for any occasion.


Favorite Card Store

Bob’s Pick: Richard's Variety Store

If you want variety, you’ve got it at this place! Named the “Best Variety Store” by Atlanta Magazine for more than 20 years, Richard’s Variety Store carries anything from birthday cards to novelty items to so much more. However, their card selection is the true treasure in this store.


Cathy’s Pick: The Cathedral Book Store

Located within the Cathedral of St. Philip, this shop offers a wide variety of religious & secular books, music, and other gifts for all ages.


Favorite Romantic Restaurants

Bob’s Pick: Anis

This charming bistro is home to some of the most mouth-watering French fares throughout all of Atlanta. They are known for their rich menu and Parisian-themed atmosphere—not to mention their live jazz performers. The entertainment is worth the trip alone and the food is fantastic!


Cathy’s Pick: La Grotta

Who doesn’t love Italian for a romantic night out? La Grotta features a menu inspired by Northern Italy pasta and cultural dishes—all with a linen-table upscale environment. However, reservations are required, so make sure you check their availability before visiting.


Favorite Jeweler

Bob & Cathy: Brown & Co Jewelers

This family-owned jewelry store is a staple in the Atlanta community. Here, you will discover stunning pieces dedicated to every important moment in life—a wedding, an anniversary, graduation, and more. The associates here take the time to discuss your wishes and hand-pick the perfect accessory for every client.


Even if we don’t always see eye-to-eye when it comes to local favorites, The LaMon Team can certainly agree on one thing—there’s no place like Atlanta. If you’re no longer in love with your home and looking for the perfect match, give us a call! We would love to assist with all your real estate needs.
