Georgia makes Travel + Leisure’s global Top 50 list

ponce city market atlanta travel and leisure

TRAVEL + LEISURE MAGAZINE has named Georgia one of its “50 Best Places to Travel in 2019.” The far-ranging annual list includes cities, locations, states and nations from New York’s Adirondacks and Alsace, France, to Malaysia, Cambodia and the Florida Keys.

Of Georgia, Travel + Leisure specifically mentions Atlanta and Savannah, saying: “With so much happening in the Peach State, Georgia should be on the mind of any savvy traveler these days. Atlanta continues its rise as a culinary capital. Notable openings include the Local Pizzaiolo, a downtown pizza spot, and Masterpiece, helmed by James Beard-nominated Rui Liu, while food halls like Ponce City Market and Krog Street Market are constantly adding new vendors. Meanwhile, the remarkable transformation of Hotel Clermont from a seedy motel into a dapper boutique property — complete with a superb French-leaning bistro and rooftop bar — has both locals and visitors buzzing. And the city famous for its gridlock is increasingly bike-friendly, thanks to the ongoing growth of the Atlanta BeltLine, a mixed-used trail that will span 33 miles when it’s completed in 2030.

“On the coast, Savannah is hopping with a flurry of hotel openings, including newcomers The Alida, a luxe riverfront property, and the upscale Perry Lane Hotel in the Historic District. Openings in 2019 include the Liberty and the Lark. On the food front, the Grey Market, a hybrid of a New York-style bodega and a Southern lunch counter, opened in late 2018 under Johno Morisano and Mashama Bailey, Savannah’s most celebrated restaurant team. It was inspired by their beloved restaurant, the Grey, which does Southern-inspired cuisine in a refurbished Greyhound bus depot and has earned a slew of accolades since its 2014 opening.”

FRYE Atlanta’s Two-Year Anniversary - Event Recap + Photos

Celebrating two years in Atlanta, FRYE Atlanta hosted a music-infused evening at its store in Ponce City Market on Thursday, August 10, 2017. Featuring an intimate, live performance by local favorite Little Tybee, FRYE Atlanta’s two-year anniversary celebration kept attendees busy with nonstop interactive opportunities including an on-site vinyl pressing and listening station curated by Paper Garden Records, signature Bulleit Bourbon cocktails, and Wild Heaven craft beer. Vinyl lovers had the chance to bid on a limited edition Crosley record player with all proceeds being donated to the Atlanta Community Food Bank.  With over 200 in attendance, stylish guests shopped and sipped the signature cocktail of the night, the FRYE Mule, made with Bulleit Bourbon, fresh lime juice, ginger beer, and a mint sprigs garnish, (recipe below) and enjoyed delicious bites from Zest Catering.  

FRYE Atlanta opened its doors in August 2015 in the Old Fourth Ward’s Ponce City Market – a reimagined mixed use development housed in the historic Sears Roebuck distribution center, originally built in 1926. The 4,000 square foot space, located on the center’s main level, draws inspiration from vintage artisan workshops to highlight the craft of old-school shoemaking. The space is defined by its signature harness ring chandelier, an installation comprised of 28,000 harness rings hung on 7,000 leather straps. Its minimal fixtures and lighter wood detailing create a modern feel in a space that simultaneously nods to the brand's 154-year history. The award-winning store seamlessly captures the spirit and essence of FRYE's heritage while being distinctly local to the Atlanta market.
