Frommer's Atlantaby Mary Lee
You'll never fall into the tourist traps when you travel with Frommer's. It's like having a friend show you around, taking you to the places locals like best. Our expert authors have already gone everywhere you might go-they've done the legwork for you, and they're not afraid to tell it like it is, saving you time and money. No other series offers candid reviews of so many hotels and restaurants in all price ranges. Every Frommer's Travel Guide is up-to-date, with exact prices for everything, dozens of color maps, and exciting coverage of sports, shopping, and nightlife. You'd be lost without us!
Frommer's is on top of all the latest developments in this fast-changing, fast-growing city. Unlike our major competitor, who only offers a skimpy pocket guide, we've got a complete and extremely detailed guide that's written and personally researched by a longtime resident. Inside you'll discover the city's best accommodations-from plush business hotels to gorgeous Southern-style B&Bs-and Atlanta's top restaurants, from sexy bistros and elegant steakhouses to the world's largest drive-in. And since Atlanta is the shopping capital of the South, we'll give you a complete shopper's guide to all the best malls, markets, funky boutiques, and outlets. No matter what your interests, Frommer's makes it easy to plan your time, whether you want to tour CNN's studios, find the best sports bar, enjoy a family picnic at Stone Mountain, or walk in the footsteps of Martin Luther King, Jr.
