The best town square in Atlanta means being more than just a space. It means serving the community, capturing the area’s history and combining culture and entertainment.
This year one square in particular had a sustained and passionate voter base. The winner is…
Covington Square, a write-in candidate, swept the poll with 41 percent of the vote. Its food scene has had a buzzy year, with a glowing review of City Pharmacy, a new restaurant that puts out “a dinner experience to rival many in this big city.”
Downtown Newnan Square is a historic trip worth taking, and it made it to the second place spot. With some buildings more than a century old, it is a fascinating connection to Georgia’s past.
Marietta Square, a winner of this poll from previous years, landed in third place this year and offers plenty of great activities. Between its long history and great restaurants, it’s a worthwhile trip.
Other nominees included Decatur Square, Roswell Town Square, Duluth Town Green, Lawrenceville Square, The Village Green in Smyrna, Canton Downtown District, Fayetteville Downtown Square, Johns Creek Town Center, and Historic Square at Stone Mountain Park.
