Exploring the Outdoor Dining Scene of the ATL Airport District

When it comes to dining, there’s something truly magical about enjoying fantastic food in the open air, especially in vibrant cities like Hapeville, College Park and Union City. Here, outdoor patios beckon diners, offering a unique culinary experience set against the backdrop of bustling city streets and scenic landscapes. As summer heats up the atmosphere and fall unfurls its colors, these District cities come alive with outdoor dining options for every palate.

The Brake Pad, with its nostalgic 1950’s mechanic station decor, offers a diner-style menu reminiscent of soda fountains and jukebox jams, solidifying its classic staple in the community by being one of the first in the Atlanta Airport District to have outdoor dining. Don’t forget The Breakfast Boys, who may not serve dinner but certainly make up for it with their extensive breakfast and brunch menu in an elegant indoor or outdoor venue available daily until 4pm.

Just a stone’s throw away from Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, Virginia Ave offers a worldly array of cultural cuisines: Bole Ethiopian serves up authentic Ethiopian delicacies, while La Fiesta Mexican transports diners to the beaches of Cabo with its tantalizing array of tacos, enchiladas and fajitas.

Cookie Smoak – A Pioneer in the Tourism Industry

Hail and farewell to our partner, mentor and friend Cookie Smoak. She is retiring after 11 years from her position as President of the ATL Airport District-a Destination Marketing Organization for College Park, Hapeville, Union City and the area around Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

Prior to her time with ATL Airport District (ATLD), Cookie worked for Delta Air Lines, Orlando CVB (Convention and Visitors Bureau) and the Atlanta CVB. She has been a driving force in destination marketing and the hospitality & tourism industries for many years.

One of Cookie’s most important achievements is the creation of our magazine: while working in Atlanta, Cookie and our other mentor and fellow publisher, Charlie Nelson, came up with the idea of publishing a magazine dedicated to the area surrounding the airport. This idea, drawn out on a napkin, became the Atlanta Airport Area Meeting Planner and Visitor’s Guide (the Guide-Atlanta Airport Area). The name has changed but we are proud to the “brain child” of these two avantgarde thinkers and industry leaders who have dedicated their lives to helping others.

During her tenure at ATLD, she and her team have accomplished so much: generating millions of dollars in revenue and working closely with economic

development directors to attract visitors, increase local business and keep hotel occupancy rates high.

She and her team have launched several programs: an annual cycling event called Spin The District which is the second-largest cycling event in Georgia, an award-winning webpage that allows visitors and meeting planners to explore the many options available to enjoy in the District, a volunteer program called NAVigators (Neighbors Assisting Visitors) where volunteers at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, area hotels and at the GICC (Georgia International Convention Center) welcome visitors to the area and developing marketing programs for the three cities ATLD represents.

Cookie has been honored by the tourism industry through the years. She was the first woman in the tourism industry to be selected as one of Atlanta Magazine’s Women Making a Mark award, given The Georgia CVB’s Larry Allen Tourism Award and she was recognized as a leader in Georgia Trend’s 500 list in 2023.

Cookie-we will miss you greatly but we wish you all the best in your future endeavors. Your knowledge, leadership, outgoing personality, and desire to make the ATL Airport District successful will impact us for many years to come.

For families seeking an escape from the ordinary, the District and its surrounding communities offer a cornucopia of activities and events, transforming every season into an opportunity for discovery, bonding and fun.

ATL District has a plethora of youth recreational sports leagues available in each community: leagues that not only provide children with a chance to stay active and healthy but also teach invaluable lessons about teamwork, discipline and sportsmanship. They have a choice to participate in baseball, football, basketball, gymnastics, dance, cheerleading, soccer and more. Certain recreational organizations will still allow you to sign up even if you do not live in that city. Cities also offer summer fun camps for kidscheck with your local recreation department for more information.

The fun doesn’t stop with the kids – adults can get

in on the action too. Adults may join a local recreation department’s sports teams for basketball, softball or kickball. Cities have classes for adults like line dancing, fitness training, arts & crafts, aerobics, yoga and more.

Adults and kids can attend live events like WNBA games at the Gateway Arena or the Cricket MEAC/SWAC Challenge Kick-Off at Center Parc Credit Union Stadium. Music concerts and other special group events, conferences and trade shows are always happening at the Georgia International Convention Center and Gateway Arena. Areas surrounding the airport are filled with outdoor fun and leisure activities: arts festivals, walking/hiking, biking, family reunions, weddings, parties and more. Golf enthusiasts have Historic College Park Golf Course, Browns Mill and Wolf Creek courses. Bicycle racing events or a family bike ride along local trails are always fun. Communities offer water activities at a splash pad or fun at local pools-you can even sign up for swimming lessons. There’s no shortage of ways for everyone to stay active and engaged.

From outdoor concerts, parades, races and festivals to movie nights under the stars, there’s something for everyone to enjoy as the days grow longer and the nights grow warmer.
