the fanplanners guide to atlanta
Every city has a guide, but ours is special.
We don't sell advertising or take anything in trade for our recommendations.
We ask a lot of locals and well versed travelers what they think (plus our two cents).
We scour reviews and sites of all kinds (because we love to save you time).
P.S. No one calls it "Hotlanta" so lose that from the vocabulary.
