If you’ve seen any of these Imaginary Worlds exhibits before, then you know that you will find larger-than-life topiaries made from live plants.

ATLANTA HISTORY CENTER Cyclorama: The Big Picture Ongoing You may think you’ve seen the cyclorama depicting the Battle of Atlanta before, but the restored painting in its brand new home at Atlanta History Center bears little resemblance to the painting we saw in its longtime home in Atlanta’s Grant Park

The completely restored Atlanta Cyclorama grips your imagination as you behold the afternoon of July 22, 1864, and the Battle of Atlanta, a crucial turning point in our nation’s Civil War when Union forces prevailed. Atlanta would fall on Sept. 2 that same year. The 360-degree cyclorama stands 49 feet tall, stretches longer than a football field and weighs 10,000 pounds. Kids will love: Climbing in, on, and all over the restored 1856 “Texas” locomotive known for giving chase to another locomotive, the “General,” which had been seized by Union loyalists.

STEAMHOUSE LOUNGE

BEETLECAT

From the oyster bar that offers 10 varietals to the airy main dining room serving everything from Maine sea scallops to whole roasted Georgia trout and beach classics like hush puppies and lobster rolls, chef and restaurateur Ford Fry’s The Optimist is a beachside escape in the heart of the bustling Westside. Don’t miss the Oyster Happy Hour (5 to 6 p.m. weekdays and 3 to 5 p.m. weekends) with $1 oysters, bakers’ dozens and other specials. Cap your evening with a round of putt-putt on the patio. http://theoptimistrestaurant.com

This seafood shack looks like it belongs at the end of a sandy beach road, not in the heart of Midtown. With a laid back vibe, wrap-around outdoor deck and rooftop patio, Steamhouse is the perfect spot for sipping an ice cold beer while dining on pub-like fare. Try one of the fried baskets like catfish or fish n’ chips, hot or cold shrimp by the dozen or half dozen, or the jumbo lump crab cake. And don’t miss the restaurant’s famed lobster bisque, available by the cup or quart. www.steamhouselounge.com

Named for a 12-foot-4-inch catboat, this nautically themed Inman Park spot is part upscale seafood restaurant, part cozy lounge. With both an upstairs dining room and a downstairs, 70s inspired cocktail den, you have your choice of setting for oysters, shareable small plates like cold smoked salmon dip and mains like crawfish and whole branzino.

downtown Decatur, Kimball House has one of the city’s largest oyster programs, focused on sustainably farmed varietals from the East, West and Gulf coasts--including the Georgia coast.
