Admittedly, Atlanta isn't the first city you think when you want romance. It's a bustling metropolis where people hustle and work, but get all lovey-dovey? You're having a hard time seeing it, aren't you? No one can blame you, after all, since Atlanta is hardly a suitable destination for a romantic getaway, much less a honeymoon. But that also doesn't mean that couples can't have a nice time here. You and your significant other can still get all the feels when you go to Atlanta. Here are a few things you can do as a couple.
Cozy Up in The SkyView Atlanta
There's nothing like enjoying the view with your special someone when you're on top of the world! Or in this case, at the peak of SkyView Atlanta! It may not seem like it but Atlanta also boasts an amazing skyline that's just as amazing as the ones in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, and more. One of the best places to see it is in this 20 story-high observation wheel at the heart of the city. To say that the views of Atlanta’s different districts
from a gondola at peak of the wheel is an understatement! It's one of the best sights to see, as well as one that's great to share with someone you love!

Watch A Movie at The Starlight Six Drive-In
Watching a movie is a great idea for a date right? And watching it in a drive-in theater would make it even better! Here in Atlanta, the Starlight Six Drive-In is one of the very few of its kind that still exists today. It's as vintage and novel as ever, with a huge screen in the middle of nowhere and parking slots where you can set your car and just watch the film. There are also many concession stands nearby if you need popcorn, drinks, and other refreshments. And if the mood strikes you, you can easily get away with getting intimate, especially if you're parked near the darker parts of the drive-in! It’ll be more exciting to do it here than in a luxury home
, that’s for sure!

Visit The Georgia Aquarium
There's just something about going to the aquarium that's so romantic. Perhaps it's the feeling of seeing all these amazing sea creatures hand-in-hand? It's as if the universe is telling you that even with so many living beings in the world, the one you're with chose to love you and you alone. Now that will have your heart thumping! And if you visited the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, it's likely you'll feel the same thing! This place includes hundreds of species of sea animals, the biggest of its kind in the state. You can spend an entire day in the aquarium and you still won't see every single creature here.

Sail Along Lake Lanier
Why go through underwater when you can sail over it? At least, that's what you can do when you go to Lake Lanier, the reservoir in the northern part of Georgia. Its scenic dock alone makes for a great date venue, but actually sailing off in a boat with just the two of you is undoubtedly more romantic. You can even pack a picnic and spend some peaceful leisure time, enjoying each other's company for hours on end. You can have heart-to-heart talks, sleep with each other (not sexy time but if you can handle it on a boat, why not?), go fishing, and more!

Enjoy A Picnic at Piedmont Park
Speaking of picnics, Piedmont Park is one of the best places for one here in Atlanta. You can say that it's the closest thing this city has to Central Park
in New York, both when it comes to its natural beauty and peaceful vibe. As one of the safest and most serene parks, not just in the state of Georgia but in the entire country, it's perfect for a sunny outdoor lunch. And if you go here in autumn, you can see the colorful leaves fall and enjoy such unforgettable scenery. It's no wonder Piedmont Park is often used for wedding shoots!

While romance and the city of Atlanta might not seem like they go hand-in-hand, this doesn't mean that couples can't enjoy their lovey-dovey time here! The city still offers a few romantic activities that lovers can do, many of which will be unforgettable!
