Trap Music Museum
Trap music was created in Atlanta, so what better place to honor the genre. TI created this art exhibit to honor the music genre. The museum replicates an actual trap house, allowing visitors to experience the step-by-step process of creating trap music. There is the famous pink trap car, and an array of art paying homage to hip pops greatest artists. Only open Friday through Sunday, this exhibit is also an escape room.
For Keeps Bookstore
This bookstore offers rare black literature, screenplays, and magazines. Located on the historic Auburn Street, you will find the owner Rosa Duffy sitting in the store smiling and excited to greet you. The store is situated in a way that allows for community and conversation. There are a ton of unique titles that are not offered at your local Barnes & Noble or available on Amazon. Stop by this bookstore for a space that honors Black American culture and history.
Historic Oakland Cemetery
This cemetery is filled with beautiful tombstones and green spaces. This park is used for numerous events such as yoga classes, weddings, and historical tours. Venturing through this park you can stumble upon the tombs of highly notable historical figures.
Krog Street Tunnels
One of the more touristy things on the list but still worth it. I suggest renting an electrical scooter (Bird, Lime, ect) and riding your way to this tunnel. These tunnels are covered in graffiti. Ride along the outside on Wylie Street SE and you will find beautiful murals. This location is great for picture taking and selfies.
One of my favorite things about the East coast is the food. I love a good blue cheese burger, and at this bodega that’s just what they offer. The food was under $10 and the workers were friendly. This is the of place that makes you feel like a local.
