An important contribution to American literature was also made here. Margaret Mitchell wrote American Civil War novel “Gone with the Wind” in Atlanta and her house is a popular historic site. 2011 is the seventy-fifth anniversary of the publication the novel.Cuisine
Even in the middle of a big city like Atlanta, you can find big country breakfasts in the South. A true Southern breakfast includes ham, maybe a biscuit, and definitely grits with butter. Grits, a hot cereal of ground corn, are a revered staple in the south. Add a little cheese and some country ham to your grits and that’s dinner. You’ll find plenty of restaurants serving Southern staples like chicken fried steak, red-eye gravy, and pecan pie throughout Atlanta.
If you’re looking for something a bit lighter or different, Atlanta is quickly opening up as a culinary capital. New restaurants are opening all the time and you can now find authentic food from around the world here. If you’d like to combine Southern tradition with fine dining, then Atlanta is a great place to be because lots of new restaurants are taking those Southern comfort foods and twisting them into haute cuisine, too.Kid Friendly
