The Best Malls in Atlanta


Atlanta is an impressive city with centuries of history. Many things have happened in this southern city (which also hosts Coca-Cola and CNN) but its present and future are also very good. Among the endless activities you can do, going shopping is a pretty good one. Here you can get to know the best malls in Atlanta, the most important fashion brands that you can find in each one, the department and discount stores and much more.

Mall of Georgia

The Mall of Georgia is not only the largest among all malls in Atlanta, but there are none that compare in size in the whole Peach State. That’s why it has that name, because when it was built, at the end of the last century, it was always intended to be the most important place for shopping in Georgia. And it still is, although it has been more than 20 years since its opening and new shops and shopping centers have arrived in the city.
