No pressure, but how good a first date is could determine if there’s a second one.
With Valentine’s Day on Friday, there will likely be a lot of first dates this week. Where will these couples be going?
Well, if they’re like AJC readers, they will head to one of three places.
Last week’s Best of Atlanta poll asked you where in metro Atlanta you like to go for a first date.
Coming in third was the Beltline, which has an abundance of options for a date. You can stroll the Beltline and enjoy the art — Baby Yoda mural, anyone? — before popping in to a restaurant for dinner. Or you can bring your bikes and ride to a restaurant, where you can pop in and have dinner or drinks.
In second place was Ponce City Market. Explore Ponce City Market before heading to the roof and playing in Skyline Park. A friendly game of miniature golf or a trip down the Skyline slide will work up an appetite that can be sated on the roof or in the Central Food Hall.
It seems our readers would rather bring their date to the flowers than bring flowers to their date, because Atlanta Botanical Garden won this year’s poll. Take a drawing class together, stroll through the gardens or come for a concert — Atlanta Botanical Garden’s myriad options will impress your date.
