Emory University, one of the South’s most prestigious schools, is situated on a beautiful campus in Georgia's Druid Hills suburb. Just 15 minutes from Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead, Emory students fully enjoy the thriving, lively city of Atlanta. Emory Village is where you’ll find the traditional college town shops and fast food, located at the entrance to Main Campus. With a wealth of activities, restaurants and parks why rush back to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport, but instead stay and explore this Southern Belle of a city that may be your child’s new home.
Breakfast: Rise and Dine in Emory Village, within walking distance to the Quad, is a retro diner always packed with Emory students and faculty. It’s about a 20 minute drive to Buttermilk Kitchen - a great spot for breakfast and weekend brunches. Everything’s made in-house using local, sustainable ingredients. If your in town on a Sunday, don't miss brunch at Canoe.
A Step Up: Like many big cities, Atlanta has an abundance of excellent restaurants, it’s hard to narrow down the choices. Try The Federal, a new eatery recently nominated for the James Beard award. For a sophisticated Japanese menu and what many consider the best sushi in Atlanta, dine at Umi. Everyone’s favorite Top Chef Judge, Hugh Acheson’s, Empire State South offers a modern take on Southern food. It’s open for breakfast and lunch as well and has an extensive coffee bar with a courtyard bocce ball. One parent just back from touring Emory said St. Cecilia in Buckhead is a must try for its seafood centric Mediterranean menu.
Local Attractions: Coca Cola Factory, CNN Tour, and "hipster neighborhood" Little Five Points. Stone Mountain has so many different attractions - it’s hard to list them all. Activities that top our list are the laser show, the high speed cable car ride, Geyser Towers and Sky Hike. The Beltline walk or bike tour, and the Botanical Gardens. If you are spending a few days in Atlanta, it’s worth getting Atlanta CityPASS. CityPASS will get you into five attractions including the Georgia Aquarium, the Coca Cola Factory, the CNN Tour, the Zoo, the Center for Human Rights, the Football Hall of Fame, and the Museum of Natural History.
