Atlanta was hit hard by the recession, but it's had one of the fastest growing economies and populations in the US for several decades.
Don't try to talk sense into them. Nola is better because some author said so 150 years ago and because they have open container laws and bars close to their stadium.
Nola is better for a wide variety of reasons. I think the size of New Orleans compared to Atlanta is one of them. Then again, I'm moving to Houston so wtf do I know.
If you don't think centrally located attractions is a huge positive, you are delusional. I was able to get a great lunch, get drinks on the go, do some shopping with the fiance and watch football all within a few blocks of each other. The place is special and unique whether you want to admit it or not. Atlanta is fun, but it just doesn't hold a candle
