Hey, don't forget about the shopping and the eating!
Phipps Plaza and Lenox Square for mall shopping, and all the small stores tucked away in almost every neighborhood corner.
There are restaurants for every craving you could have, and if I start to list them, I'll never finish.

I would certainly make it a point to dine at The Flying Biscuit-

The Flying Biscuit Cafe :: Restaurant Locations

From the list --it seems there are now 8 or more locations. Not bad, not bad --for a 'Little Red Hen' story.

Wondering about 'Terminus' on Peachtree Rd, aptly named but I had not heard of that one.

I'd agree -- don't know why I forgot about Oakland Cemetery. Feel free to remove either of items 9 or 10 and replace it with Oakland Cemetery.
