ABOUT TSG ATLANTA EDITOR KATIE NEWTON:

Born and raised in Atlanta, Katie has always loved her dynamic and vibrant city (minus the traffic!), where she lives with her husband, two girls, and 112-pound lab named Rascal. Katie adores her TSG Atlanta clients and showcasing the wonderful stories behind their businesses. She describes herself as a coffee aficionado, a bacon aficionado, and an anglophile, and she considers buzzing around Atlanta to her favorite local shops to be her exercise.


KATIE’S THREE FAVORITE REASONS TO VISIT ATLANTA, GEORGIA:

  1. The Outdoor Spaces. “Visitors—particularly in the spring and fall—should go to Piedmont Park or the Botanical Gardens, especially when the flowers are blooming. Biking the BeltLine to Ponce City Market for lunch or strolling through Oakland Cemetery, an enormous historic cemetery nearby, are also great outdoor activities.”
  2. The Architecture. “The area surrounding Oakland Cemetery has lovely renovated Victorian homes that are worth checking out. Out-of-towners should also take a drive through Buckhead and peruse the beautiful old Reed and Shutze-designed mansions built in the 1920’s.”
  3. The Game-Watching Opportunities. “I would definitely recommend that visitors plan to attend an Atlanta United Game at the new Mercedes Benz Stadium.”
