This delightful 7,000-seat outdoor facility presents concerts under the stars from May to October, featuring big-name performers. Everyone brings food -- a picnic on the grass, at your amphitheater seat, or at a table for up to six is a tradition. Some people even bring gourmet feasts, flowers, and candelabra for an extraspecial experience. If you don't feel like piecing together a picnic, you can preorder your meal from on-site caterers Proof-of-the-Pudding and Glorious Events. Meals are wonderful and come with enough food for four or more. For a fee, the company will dress your table and have everything ready when you arrive; all you'll have to do is open the wine and light the candles. It can be difficult to get tickets at times, so order as far in advance as possible (months ahead if you can). The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra accompanies some performers here.
