There is nothing more amazing than nature’s sunset. When you need an uplifting moment, watching a sunset fits the bill. Also one perk in these trying economic times is that sunsets are usually free to view. When you want to see a sunset, you need the perfect spot. Here are the five best places in Atlanta to watch the sunset.

Four Seasons Hotel Fifth Floor Terrace
75 14th St. N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30309
(404) 881-9898

Al fresco is a term used by chefs like Chef Gerstenecker of The Four Seasons Atlanta Park 75 restaurant. His own bees, which produce honey for use in his restaurant, have one of the best places to watch the sunset in Atlanta. This place is the hotel’s 5th floor terrace. This place boasts not only spectacular views, but one of the best herb gardens in Atlanta. Visit the Park 75 restaurant or lounge for a quick bite, then head up to the 5th floor terrace for spectacular views.

Stone Mountain

1000 Robert E. Lee Blvd.
Stone Mountain, GA 30083
(770) 498-5690

Sunsets are so in demand here that Stone Mountain offers a Sunset Adventure Pass to view this remarkable event. One can save on admission to the park after 3 p.m. by purchasing this special sunset ticket. You will enjoy with this type of ticket access to attractions until 7 p.m. Then the fun really begins when you get to watch the Laser Show Spectacular. Your location is extremely comfortable yet still convenient. From your terrace seat, you can enjoy your popcorn and a drink while watching nature’s cinema.

Lindbergh Marta Station
2424 Piedmont Road N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30324

Head to the very top of the parking deck at the Marta Lindbergh station. There lies a secret sunset view of the Atlanta’s skyline along with a sunset option. This is the perfect vantage point after riding Marta home from possibly a Braves game or some other fun Atlanta activities. Do not forget to bring you camera, so you can capture the moment in photos and then update your Facebook status.
