Have Love, Will Travel to Vacation

April 22, 2009

The Love and I went to Atlanta for our first time last week. After going to a Braves game and the World of Coca-Cola (a bust, don’t go unless you like to waste money), we drove to the Buckhead area in search of charm and character. We found next to none, just lots of new developments, strip malls and offices.

We saw a woman who looked like “our people” and asked her where we should go for a drink and to see a cooler side of the city. Her immediate response was to leave Buckhead and head to Little Five Points.

Little Five Points is on Atlanta’s Eastside and home to a lot of hip independent restaurants, bars, stores and craftsman-style homes. I really liked Soul Veg, a great vegetarian restaurant, and fell for Vacation, an awesome art and clothing store down the street. Pass under “Have Love, Will Travel” on Vacation’s door and find nicely edited and priced vintage clothes for men and women, art for sale on the wall, and music. Stir in lots of light from the huge storefront windows, bright clothes and neon colored signage and the store really captures the feeling of excitement and fun I found on vacation.

Vacation also has a blog. Read it up here.
