Located just over a mile northeast from Downtown Atlanta, Piedmont Park is an urban space with gorgeous views of the Atlanta skyline that plays host to a variety of group workouts and swimming activities.
What about a setting for your engagement? There is a collection of diverse proposal spots within this beautiful park such as the Piedmont Park Green Market, which takes place every Saturday from late-March – November.

A public attraction that opened in 2005, Georgia Aquarium is home to hundreds of different species and thousands of animals, all beneath a whopping 10 million gallons of water. It had also maintained the title of the World’s Largest Aquarium for seven years until it was surpassed by the Marine Life Park in Singapore.
Prepare to dive into the many galleries and exhibits this aquarium has to offer. You and your sweetheart will encounter multiple awe-inspiring specimens including a collection of beluga whales, bottlenose dolphins, whale sharks, and manta rays.
If you’re feeling lucky, find a moment when you and your love are alone, perhaps in the aquarium’s immersive exhibit tunnel, and fall to one knee and tell them: “We may not have found Nemo, but we found each other, and you’re one thing I’ll never let swim away.”
