Atlanta is a shopper’s paradise; it seems like you can’t walk 5 feet without finding yourself in front of yet another display window stocked with gorgeous, glittering must-have items. Here are a few good places to start your own personal treasure hunt.

Lenox Square

3393 Peachtree Road NE
Atlanta, GA 30326
(404) 233-7575

For more than 50 years, this retail mecca in the heart of Atlanta has been drawing shoppers from every corner of the city. You’ll find plenty of upscale options — think Bloomingdale’s, Burberry and Cartier — but with nearly 250 stores inside, Lenox Square offers something for everyone. Dining choices cover all price ranges, too, from pizza to prime rib.

CNN Center

One CNN Center
Atlanta, GA 30303
(404) 827-2491

It’s most famous for being the headquarters of CNN and its numerous networks, but CNN Center also houses a retail area with several specialty shops carrying rare and unique items related both to Atlanta and the various CNN and Turner networks. The Braves Clubhouse Store stocks clothing, memorabilia and one-of-a-kind items from the Atlanta Braves, Hawks and Thrashers, while the CNN Store carries a huge selection of items featuring your favorite shows and personalities from CNN, Cartoon Network, HBO and other networks under the Turner umbrella.

Phipps Plaza

3500 Peachtree Road NE
Atlanta, GA 30326
(404) 261-7910

Be sure to dress your best and bring every available credit card when you visit Phipps Plaza, because this glitzy, glamorous shopping center is firmly focused on the finer things in life. In addition to Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom, you’ll also find shops featuring all the best items from luxury designers like Gucci, Armani, Versace and Jimmy Choo.

Atlantic Station

171 17th St., Suite 1650
Atlanta, GA 30363
(404) 876-2616
www.atlanticstation.com

Designed as a city within a city, Atlantic Station is a collection of shops, restaurants, attractions and luxury homes just a stone’s throw from downtown Atlanta. The sidewalks are lined with dozens of stores covering every price range, including many old favorites like Gap, Nine West, Dillard’s and Old Navy. If all that shopping builds up an appetite, there are plenty of spots to grab coffee, ice cream or a full meal as well.

Underground Atlanta

50 Upper Alabama St., Suite 007
Atlanta, GA 30303
(404) 523-2311
www.underground-atlanta.com

Filled with stores, clubs, restaurants and attractions, Underground Atlanta is downtown’s most energetic venue. The vibe is casual, and you’ll see locals and visitors from all walks of life shopping and relaxing here. In addition to browsing the wide selection of stores, guests can also take a guided tour of the property’s historical sites, pose for photos with a variety of exotic birds or have their palms read.
