1. Lakewood Amphitheater This massive venue right in Lakewood Heights has a fabulous set lined up for May: Def Leppard or Kings of Leon, anyone? Whether you bring a blanket and have a picnic on the lawn or opt for VIP seating in Zone A (which is pretty much on the stage!), you’ll surely enjoy the night as much as you do the music. 7PM, lawn tickets from $61, Zone A tickets from $249, 2002 Lakewood Ave. SE
2. Atlanta Botanical Garden Running from May 6-Oct. 29, The Curious Garden’s 11 site-specific installations that tell the unique story of the garden’s plant collection is worth wandering through. This special exhibit strikes a perfect balance between natural and manmade in its art that is truly captivating. Think spray-painted trees and old chandeliers dripping with botanicals. Tickets from $22,1345 Piedmont Ave.
Take a stroll on the trail boasting gorgeous local art, including sculptures, murals, tiny doors and even an Eiffel Tower just outside Paris on Ponce—not to mention several hot spots to take a brief breather with a cocktail in hand. No need to make a reservation at Barcelona Wine Bar or Bartaco in Inman Park just grab a table on the patio and order one of their specialty cocktails.
4. Le Bilboquet Start the day off right with a healthy and hearty brunch at this The Shops Buckhead Atlanta resto boasting serious flavor on the expansive patio. If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, go ahead and order the brioche French toast with maple syrup, it may be one of the most decadent and rich meals you’ll ever have! 3035 Peachtree Road NE, 404.869.9944
5. Stone Mountain Perhaps one of the most stunning vistas in the Atlanta area, the top of Stone Mountain is truly breathtaking, especially at sunrise. The early rise and difficult trek is definitely worth see the sun’s light melting across the city. 1000 Robert E. Lee Blvd., Stone Mountain
