About The Atlanta Tourist


I am Kim Wolfe, the person behind The Atlanta Tourist!

My Story

I was raised in South Alabama. I spent the first half of my life in Alabama with my family, near Mobile Bay and the beaches of Gulf of Mexico. A few years after graduating from college, I moved to the Atlanta, Georgia area.

I’ve been living near Atlanta, Georgia for the second part of my current life. 16 years and counting -:)


I absolutely LOVE Atlanta!

A-l-m-o-s-t…as much as I love the beach!

What do I love about Atlanta? The people, the diversity, the creativity that lives in this city and surrounding cities, referred to as metro Atlanta. There are nearly 5.8 million in metro Atlanta as of early 2017. The Atlanta, Georgia area is the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the United States.

With this many people, Atlanta is a large city. We have a public transit system. We have an NFL football team, MLB baseball team, NBA Basketball team and a MLS Soccer team. We have art museums, sport museums and a civil right museum. We even have a Waffle House museum!

We have a gazillion food options, from all different cultures. We even have a farmer’s market the size of a football field that specializes in bringing in food from all over the world.

Atlanta offers you hundreds, maybe even thousands, of different experiences. When searching for “things to do in Atlanta”, most sites are just overwhelming.

It can be difficult to answer a simple question…”I’m in this area, what should I do?”.

That’s why I created The Atlanta Tourist.
