What’s the best time to visit Atlanta?

Fall. It just feels great. Summer’s hot, so as soon as it cools off, it just feels literally like a big breath of fresh air. It’s energizing because summer’s brutal. As soon as the weather drops 20 degrees, it’s like getting released from prison. Not that that’s ever happened to me, but I can imagine.

I would say during the beginning of our spring. It’s getting a little warmer out, but there’s still snow on the ground in New York and Chicago. That’s the best time of year for me. Or during football season.

While any season is a good time to visit Atlanta, perhaps the best time is during the spring. That's when the weather is still cool and the azaleas and dogwood trees are in full bloom. It's one of the most beautiful times of the year.

Fall runs a close second when it comes to gorgeous weather, because the city's notoriously hot and humid summer is coming to a close. October is one of the city's mildest months and therefore a great month for a trip. Plus, if you're a sports fan, you can catch a Falcons game (and maybe even a Braves game if they make the playoffs).

If you're a big Braves fan and definitely want to catch a game, summer is still ideal for watching "America's Team" in action, and there's really not a bad seat in Turner Field. Just head to the Varsity after the game and cool off with a frosted orange; it's a requirement after a summertime Braves game.
