2021 Atlanta Bucket List: Things to Do, Eat, and See This Year

Atlanta view from Jackson street bridge, as listed on my Ultimate Bucket List

There are so many amazing things to do, restaurants, and weekend trips around Atlanta that I want to explore in 2021- hence why I put them into another bucket list! I love a good Atlanta bucket list- y’all might remember my ultimate Atlanta bucket list a while back (scroll down on this post to download it!), and the OG one that I had hanging on my fridge.

My 2021 Atlanta bucket list is a way for me to look forward to this year, be optimistic about the world getting better, and having things to look forward to. 2020 was such a crazy year- In some moments, I was glad for the quiet and getting to stay home (work from the couch > my desk in the office), but I also craved doing, seeing, and exploring more in Atlanta. 

As much as I could, I explored small towns, got outside, and found activities I could do as safely as possible. But, I felt myself struggling to fully enjoy what it’s like living in Atlanta, and especially share that with Ryan, who moved here for me one week before lockdown.

So…2021 is our year! (*knocks on wood*). And looking forward to 2021, scroll down for all the things that are on my Atlanta bucket list for this year.
