You know all the things to do in Atlanta. You’ve been there a hundred times. But have you explored the vibe of Sandy Springs, one of the fastest growing cities in Georgia that’s just minutes from the South’s biggest city? Sandy Springs is a city with heart. A city that beats with an entrepreneurial spirit all its own. Our locals are small business owners, they’re chefs, they’re tech moguls.
They’re also our city’s best tour guides.
That’s why we created City Vibes, our new digital series, about the best places to go according to the people who know.
They can tell you where to go for pizza. The park to go to on a sunny day. The happy hour spot. The late night party. They know it all and you can trust them over Yelp or Google or any other travel resource out there.
Meet our tour guides below and learn about all the things to do when you visit Sandy Springs.
Chef Rob is the coolest guy you don’t know. His restaurant is welcoming and has a vibe all its own. Order up an authentic Caribbean meal. See one of Atlanta’s biggest celebrities in the wild and act nonchalant, Hookah and hang at one of the coolest lounges around Atlanta.
Faye is the friend you need in your life. The pastry chef/owner of the coolest chocolate shop in town - She’ll make you a custom treat and then take you out for the best pizza of your life.
Mike Bivone’s brought Silicon Valley-style to Sandy Springs, leading a tech company and being one of the biggest proponents of our city’s Innovation Center.
