Small businesses need our support now more than ever. In the season of giving, we've rounded up a few spots where you can find Atlanta-centric and "only in Downtown" items and experiences that make wonderful gifts for friends, family, and coworkers. Thanks for supporting entrepreneurs in our neighborhood!
Thoughtful Local Goods
Retail centers like the Sweet Auburn Curb Market and Peachtree Center are great places to source stocking stuffers and treats, from popcorn and confections to jewelry and apparel. Looking for specialty items like cigars, wine, skincare products, or footwear? You'll find those in Downtown, too.
The Gift of an Experience
Memories are perhaps the greatest gift of all. Book a guided tour of Atlanta with Unexpected Atlanta Tours, Civil Bikes, Bicycle Tours of Atlanta, or ATL-Cruzers, all of whom are offering safe, outdoor experiences by foot, by bike, by Segway, or by vehicle. Go deeper: have you ever gifted someone a sea lion meet and greet or a shark cage dive? It's possible at Georgia Aquarium!
Give Now, Use Later
Save someone a night of head-scratching over what to make for dinner--and support a small business--by purchasing a gift card to a Downtown restaurant. Peruse our listing of restaurants to see which ones are offering gift cards.
An ATL Day
See the best of Atlanta with one easy-to-use mobile ticket and enjoy 30 days of validity. CityPASS includes admission to Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca-Cola, plus admission to 3 more attractions of your choice: Zoo Atlanta, the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, and the College Football Hall of Fame.
Annual memberships to Downtown Atlanta attractions are a gift that keeps on giving.
