Their milkshakes bring all the boys to The Yard [Milkshake Bar] 🙂 If you like posting pictures of food on your Instagram, visiting The Yard is an Atlanta essential!

The Atlanta BeltLine is a funky revitalized area of the city, full of murals and urban trails. It’s by far one of the most Instagrammable places in Atlanta.
