When visiting Atlanta this spring, relax on the patios of the city's top restaurants. Take in the sights and scenes of Atlanta at diverse restaurants that range in cuisine, style and atmosphere.
Atlanta Fish Market:
On the patio of Atlanta Fish Market, enjoy a wide variety of seafood fare such as the raw oysters, baby lobster tail or smoked mango-glazed salmon.
Stop by Kyma for Greek wine and fresh and healthy appetizers while sitting on the welcoming patio, complete with plush and comfortable furniture.

Atlanta , Hotels:
InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta, Americas Best Value Inn & Suites, Crowne Plaza Airport Hotel, Marriott Perimeter Center, and much more...
Atlanta , Safety:
Many people feel comfortable riding MARTA (the mass transit system) at night, and by most accounts is safe (others avoid it). Solo female travelers might want to select an alternate form of transportation in the evenings, but daytime travel is very safe and has lots of passengers who use it to travel to/from the airport.
Interstate driving is safe, but can tend to be harrying for those not accustomed to driving in large cities.
Outside the Perimeter (areas outside 285, particularly on the North side) are considered to be very safe
Other data points
I'd like to call this post "man you guys are nuts!" but I know how tough it is to compare places you haven't been to. So instead I'll just give my $0.02 in several areas.
General Info: Also called the Manhattan of the South (maybe because we are an island unto ourselves). We're a city that has just about doubled every 20 years since 1950. We're now the 9th most populous metropolitan area in the US. That growth rate means huge population shifts - in our case, largely from other parts of the US and the world. WIth nearly 20% of the population speaking languages other than English at home, we're a pretty damn diverse crowd these days. Africans or African-Americans make up over 30% of the population; Latinos and Hispanics about 10%; Asians about 5%. That's greater diversity than New York, San Francisco and Miami.
Different Stuff: Check out the Decatur bar scene. Little 5 Points or East Atlanta at any time of day or night. For the real adventurous spirit, check out the Claremont Lounge, Star Bar, The Majestic (after 2am).
Don't miss: Anything. Stone Mountain Laser Show in the Summer, Dive bars, Hipsters and Tattoo parlors, great beer joints, avoiding the tourist spots.
Food: None of the places mentioned seem anything but cliche. Check out Urban Spoon for the latest hot spots. Anne's Snack Shack, Fox Brothers, Vortex and others beckon from outside of the pompous Buckhead crowd that the site lists.

Chicago , Food:
Food in Chicago is excellent! There is so much variety. There are many places for steak (Carmine's, Wildfire). There is also great Italian (Sappori Trattoria). Many ethnic restaurants if you want tasty affordable alternatives. My advice - go to a BYOB with a bottle or two of wine and you'll save.
Chicago , Hotels:
Hotels along Michigan Avenue are fun yet expensive. For a cheaper place in a great location, try Congress Plaza hotel.
Chicago , Safety:
OK for the most part. Just plan out your route in advance. Take cabs, buses, or trains.
