Q: Where do you send guests who are look­ing for a way to keep cool?

A: Six Flags White Water is the best place to cool off with slides, rides, and other aquatic ac­tiv­i­ties. Call­away Gar­dens is a short drive south and has water skiing, wake­board­ing, tub­ing, zip lin­ing, and hik­ing. Or you could spend the day at the

Ge­or­gia Aquar­ium and swim with the whale sharks!

Q: Where's the best place to get a frozen mar­garita in town?

A: Al­ways great is Red Phone Booth— a pro­hi­bi­tion ex­pe­ri­ence lo­cated down­town—for a craft mar­garita. Try Bar­taco for their Skinny mar­garita, as well as Agave and No Mas! Cantina.

Q: Where would you send a guest look­ing to en­joy some At­lanta nightlife?

A: At­lanta is never lack­ing for fun and en­er­getic nightlife. The sexy Re­gent Cock­tail

Club at The Shops Buck­head At­lanta of­fers rooftop views, live mu­sic, and a lively crowd. Of course, Johnny's Hide­away seems to be where ev­ery­one ends up.

Q: Where can a fam­ily on the go have a quick lunch?

A: Cer­tainly South City Kitchen Buck­head for great food, ser­vice, and a su­per pa­tio with mis­ters in the sum­mer. Down­town, try Gus's World Fa­mous Fried Chicken at Peachtree Cen­ter Mall. In Mid­town, an old fa­vorite is Ein­stein's on Ju­niper Street.
