Whether it’s a busy shopping mall or a quaint downtown, Metro Atlanta is riddled with great shopping options. You just have to know where to look!

Like most guys, I’ll admit…shopping is not my thing. The walking around, the trying on clothes, spending an hour in a store and not buying anything; it’s tough to see that as a relaxing, leisure time activity.

And while the 21st century has ushered in this era of online retail, in a place like Atlanta you actually miss out on some of the culture and charm of the city if you don’t hit up the brick and mortars every once in a while. Sure, there are plenty of impersonal, cookie-cutter suburban shopping malls like you would see in just about any town, but there’s also a unique vibe to so many of the different shopping districts in and around Atlanta.

When determining where to shop, there are several factors to consider other than just the stores themselves. Where are you going to eat? A long day of shopping is sure to build up quite an appetite. How do you keep the kids entertained? Many retail districts are making huge investments to ensure that’s not a problem for shoppers.

With all those criteria factored in, check out Atlanta’s top shopping spots, an absolute must for people of all ages and stages of life.
