by Contributor

Combining Southern hospitality with big city charm, Atlanta is a wonderful destination for a romantic getaway. Atlanta boasts some of the country's finest hotels, restaurants, historic sites, museums and music hot spots, making it ideal for inspiring romance.

Get swept away in a romantic tour. If you're a fan of the South and "Gone With the Wind", touring the mansion of its author is a must. The tour lasts around an hour-and-a-half and includes photos, correspondence, artifacts and a movie museum.

Picnic at Piedmont Park. Bring your own basket, fill it up at Green Market and stroll through the park before or after your romantic rendezvous on a blanket. Springtime and fall offer the best scenery in the park.

Stay at a quaint bed and breakfast to fully experience Southern hospitality. King Kieth House is a wonderful Victorian-era inspired B&B; to try; the Gaslight Inn Bed & Breakfast and Sugar Magnolia B&B; are other renowned spots to snuggle.

Enjoy a romantic dinner for two. Set in the top of the Atlanta Hilton, Nikolai's Roof offers breathtaking views of the city and exceptional Russian cuisine. Basil's serves Mediterranean cuisine in the ambiance of candlelight.

Go to a drive-in movie. Cuddle beneath the stars as you enjoy a movie just as couples did years ago. The Starlight Six Drive-In is the perfect spot to act like a couple of teenagers.

Savor live jazz performances. The Lush Life Café and Churchill Grounds for fabulous live music.
