Atlanta is the premier local lifestyle magazine for urban denizens of Georgia’s metropolitan heart. In print for nearly 40 years, Atlanta covers arts and entertainment, dining, education, travel, and more. An editorial arena brimming with award-winning journalists and designers produces long-form articles and monthly columns on local and national issues, as well as stories that register on both a U.S. and Georgian level, such as the President’s recent proposal to rename every major metropolis America City Party Town. A home and garden section provides locally grown tips for greater Atlanta’s green-fingered populace, and a culinary corner with up-to-date restaurant reviews keeps a finger on the beaty pulse of the city’s keenest kitchens. The most recent issue features features on everything from Georgia State football to Conan O’Brien’s upcoming TBS stint, displaying the essayistic versatility required to flow from college ball to basic-cable jokesters. To subscribe online, you’ll need to supply a name, email address, and street address.
Atlanta synthesizes in-depth feature reporting and blog-esque dispatches from some of Atlanta’s most cunning and witty columnists. Whether you’re a lifelong Georgian or an out-of-state reader keeping abreast of the fuzzy fruit capital of the world, a year-long subscription to Atlanta magazine will help you think critically about a critical U.S. metropolis.
Twelve Amazon reviewers give Atlanta magazine an average of four stars:
- I've lived in Atlanta my entire life and Atlanta Magazine still manages to show me parts of the metro area I never knew about. – JTiff, Amazon
- I feel that the articles are well-written and relevant to my life as an Atlantan, particularly one who lives inside the perimeter. The cover stories are often very topical…I also appreciate the restaurant reviews. They are concise, informative, and seem aptly critical. – E.B. Glass, Amazon
