Trip Report JoeTro's Atlanta trip report

Jump to last reply

Thanks again for all of the Atlanta help. Here's my trip report.

Flew in today at about 2:30 and took Marta all the way to Buckhead. I was really impressed with the ease of Marta and accessability (i.e. elevators and wider lanes for luggage, etc.). I'm staying at the Courtyard Buckhead which is about a block away from the station and is so far very nice. Good decor, cute lobby with water and a fireplace.

I had originally planned to go to the High Museum, but I'm going to save that for Saturday, as I wanted to have an earlier night. I took Marta to Midtown and walked over to and through a bit of Piedmont Park. Definitely nice, and I could imagine it being amazing if there were leaves on the trees. I then stopped and had a drink at Blake's on the Park to check out the gay scene. Pretty dead with a not-my-type server (I'm spoiled in WeHo), but it was also just before 5. I then saw a Post leasing office, so I took a look at the Post Parkside apartment. The manager, Susan, was really amazing, and I enjoyed the time that she spent with me. I could get a studio or a one-bedroom between $850 and $1150 depending on a number of factors, and I was able to see a model studio. I wasn't blown away by the amenities or the fixtures, but I'm also not really that fussy. The location is obviously great, although I don't necessarily need to be on the park. I'm going to check out Post Stratford in Buckhead tomorrow and will report back. I walked down Peachtree to get a look at some of the condos (including the outside of 1010 Midtown, which looks amazing). I'm wondering if perhaps renting a small condo could also be do-able for me. I then had a quick but nice dinner at ParQ (formerly Quattro) of a good pear and walnut salad and some sweet potato chips, all for $15 including tax and tip.

It's super windy here!

Tomorrow is my interview at GSU, so I'll probably try to wander a little Downtown and will definitely explore the Phipps Plaza and mall area. I'm planning to eat at Tavern at Phipps tomorrow.
