    Where can you get the best view in Atlanta?

    Canoe, photo courtesy Green Olive Media There are several spots in Atlanta with incredible views — all are unique and all have very different views. First, if you want to enjoy a leisurely evening and perhaps a few cocktails, head to the top of the Westin Peachtree Plaza and chill out at the tri-level Sundial Restaurant, Bar & View. To get there, take the hotel's 85-second glass elevator ride to the top floor and you'll be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of Atlanta. The restaurant's revolving floor (yes, it revolves) and expansive windows ensure you won't miss any of Downtown's best sites. If you're up for more of a hike, head to Stone Mountain Park where you can, well, hike to the top of the mountain for views as far as you can see. On a clear day, you'll be able to spot the Atlanta skyline in the distance. For those more interested in relaxing by the waters of the Chattahoochee River, you simply can't beat the setting at Canoe restaurant. The idealic spot on the banks of the river includes outdoor seating in the colorful, lush garden, and in late spring the restaurant hosts its Songs of the South live music series outside on Wednesday nights.

    What are the hottest upcoming concerts in Atlanta?

    The Avett Brothers Summer is a great time for live music in Atlanta, especially with outdoor venues like Chastain Park Amphitheatre, Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood and Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre. But I'm excited about the first-ever Shaky Knees Music Festival at Masquerade Music Park May 4-5 with headliners The Lumineers and Band of Horses, plus Jim James, Drive By Truckers, Gary Clark Jr. and Dr. Dog. Chastain has some big acts this summer, as always, including The Smashing Pumpkins (May 10); Darryl Hall & John Oates (May 30); Sting (June 10); Joan Baez and Atlanta locals The Indigo Girls (June 15); Harry Connick Jr. (July 7); and Atlanta favorites Yacht Rock Review (July 20).

    The Avett Brothers are playing at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre on May 17, and the legendary Tony Bennett on May 31. Jam band faves Phish will have back-to-back shows July 16 and 17, followed up on July 20 with The Black Crowes.

    Finally, Aaron's Amphitheatre at Lakewood is hosting a slew of killer concerts, including The Black Keys (May 2); the Americanarama Festival of Music Featuring Bob Dylan, My Morning Jacket, Wilco and more (June 29); Depeche Mode (Sept. 12); Maroon 5 (Sept. 16); and John Mayer (Sept. 27).
