Georgia’s capital was greeted with a low temperature of 25 degrees on early Thanksgiving morning, which is the coldest it’s been on Thanksgiving in Atlanta in over a century.

Nonetheless, Atlanta is pulsing with life; nearly 11 000 people ran the Atlanta Half Marathon and there were participants from all age ranges. People in Atlanta had many enjoyable ways of celebrating Thanksgiving and indulging in a variety of Black Friday shop-deals and discounts. Small Business Saturday is another shopping-related day with a goal to make buyers spend at smaller stores and retailers.

During these past few weeks, the nightlife in Atlanta had heaps going on – Kate Nash performed at the Terminal West and there was also the concert of Elton John in the Philips Arena.
With the holiday hype slowly coming to a close, many would expect the atmosphere in Atlanta to become mundane and monotonous soon, but that is certainly not the case.
The temperatures may be dropping, but Atlanta sure offers quite a few events to heat things up before New Year. The 2013 SEC Championship in Football can be seen at Georgia Dome on the 7th of December, Chris Cornell will have a concert on the 3rd at the Center Stage Arena, and the Global Winter Wonderland operates daily from 5 to 11 pm.

After all, this time of the year always proves to be perfect for traveling and having a good time, be it partying with friends or just reconnecting with family and close ones.
