Popular Television and Movie Locations in Atlanta

The greatest cinematic-like TV achievement is “The Walking Dead”.

However, I feel equally lucky that Nashville is home to the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) and the theatrical performances it hosts.

Dog-friendly Spots in Atlanta

The pleasure of having your dog for company is special. We humans appreciate, and enjoy the times when we can call on our pet for a warm amity. Not many of us can identify with having this sort of companionship, but a dog for a pet is the best playmate and stress reliever anyone could ever have. Many of us can identify with the confined feeling of staying cooped up in the same space for too long. Well, your dog can feel along these lines too. With the stress of keeping squirrels off the yard, and finding an immaculate pee spot, sometimes your dog wants a new outdoor scene with fresh grass, and some new butts to sniff. For those who enjoy long walks with their furry friend, casual shopping sprees, and frisbee throwing matches in a dog-friendly environment, here are some popular sites to take your dog for nonstop “man and best friend” fun.
