Atlanta isn’t just known for Love & Hip-Hop or The Real Housewives of Atlanta franchises anymore, the city is also known for being health-conscious as well.
The Root has made a somewhat comprehensive list of Atlanta’s health and wellness scene, which includes healthy exercise and eating. Here are some examples:
For Exercises Try:
While Piedmont Park is conveniently located, Stone Mountain Park (1000 Robert E. Lee Drive, Stone Mountain) is a runner’s paradise. You can either walk or run up the 1.3-mile Walk Up Trail to the mountain’s summit, which offers a fantastic panoramic view of the metro area. The five-mile paved loop at the mountain’s base helps you keep track of your progress with its highlighted mile markers at every half-mile. In total, the 3,200-acre state park has 15 miles of hiking and walking trails and a 363-acre lake.
For Healthy Eating:
R. THOMAS DELUXE GRILL
R. Thomas Deluxe Grill (1812 Peachtree St. NW, Atlanta), a family-owned restaurant in Atlanta’s Brookwood neighborhood, is a popular 24-hour spot with an expansive menu that includes free-range meat and organic, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, and raw-food choices. R. Thomas is also known for its fruit and vegetable smoothies and juices, which are welcome after a workout.
