WHOO! Nobody has the fa-la-la-la holiday spirit quite like the ATL! From our decked out holiday lights displays to our truly one-of-a-kind holiday pop up bars Atlanta goes HARD for Christmas! And now the rest of the country can see it too! Oh and not to mention the Atlanta Botanical Garden’s huge win on ABC’s ‘The Great Christmas Light Fight’
In a recent study from WalletHub, Atlanta ranked first overall as the best city for Christmas!
How’d WalletHub come up with the best city for Christmas in the U.S? They say, “to identify the most festive and affordable cities for Christmas celebrations, we compared the 100 biggest cities in the U.S. based on 28 key indicators such as traditions, shopping, and costs.”
This means Atlanta is the best bang for your buck! And we sure think our over the top decor and celebrations definitely help us out a ton!
Here’s what WalletHub had to say about our lovely city
“The Big Peach is the best city for Christmas celebrations this year because of its superb shopping and activity opportunities. For example, Atlanta has plenty of options to help you prepare for Christmas celebrations, including a high number of bakeries and places to buy holiday decorations.”
They elaborated, “With the milder winter weather, it is easy to enjoy the city’s largest outdoor ice rink, located at Centennial Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta, which offers a festive holiday experience with twinkling holiday lights and gorgeous skyscrapers. Furthermore, the giving spirit can be felt by residents and visitors alike, with many opportunities throughout the city for donating time and money this holiday season.”
