Shopping Tips (4)

The Underground

Favorite thing Central Downtown shopping area - called the Underground - cos you guessed it - it's underground.

The center has historical roots linking the area to a seige during the Civil War, quite interesting to read about, however I didn't think it warrented to pay to go on a walking tour around the shopping center to find out all about it! If you have a look at the website below, there's plenty of information to quench your thirst for US history.

The shopping itself is not much different to many other shopping malls in the US - although it does have an interesting selection of individual stalls selling mainly tourist items going along the inside street.

Fondest memory Check out more about the Underground Center at http://www.underground-atlanta.com/

Do the Malls in Metro...

Favorite thing Do the Malls in Metro Atlanta.

Atlanta metropolitan area has 4 large shopping Malls. The Mall of Georgia is the largest shopping Mall in the state of Georgia and the South East. The Mall is located on I-85 Exit 115.


Probably the most upscale Mall in Atlanta would be the Lenox Mall at Buckhead here you will find many expensive and specialized stores such as GAP, Giani Versache, Gucci, Tommy Hillfiger and so on. Just accross the street from Lenox Mall there is Phipps Plaza Mall which is less expensive than its neighboring competitor. Both Lenox Mall and Phipps Plaza are in walking distance from both the Lenox Station and Buckhead station. The Lenox station being the nearest to both Malls. When riding the Marta Rail in Atlanta you would want to take the North East line to Doraville and stop at Lenox Station which has the number NE-7. If you will like to stop at Buckhead Station you would have to take the North line to North Springs the station number of Buckhead Station is N-7.

Another great Mall in Atlanta is the Perimeter Mall located just accross Dunwoody Station. Dunwoody Station is N-9 on the Northbound line to North Springs. By car you would have to drive on the 285 Atlanta bypass and take exit 30 Ashford Dunwoody road.

Another great shopping experience would be underground Atlanta, you would want to take the Marta rail and stop at five points station and avoid Atlanta's bussy traffic. Be smart think Marta!

When visiting Atlanta I would...

Favorite thing When visiting Atlanta I would suggest taking a day to visit the attractions in downtown Atlanta. My favorite attraction is the CNN Center (probably just because I like to watch the news). A pleasant surprise was the Coca-Cola Museum, where you can taste different Coke products from around the World (fitting for a traveler). Also, make sure to visit Underground Atlanta, a multileveled shopping center which was converted from several levels of train trestles which had been built (in the 19th century) over the streets below.

Favorite thing visit Lenox Mall and Phipps Plaza which sell some awesome clothes for very reasonable prices if you are used to English prices as I am.

Also the Centinniel Olympic Park - see picture

Fondest memory Wandering around the place where I used to live in Lindberg Center. It was very peaceful and away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
