Atlantans recommend | Places to visit, things to do during Super Bowl 2019

Here's what you have to make sure you do when you come to the city.

ATLANTA — In the words of Jermaine Dupri "Welcome to Atlanta where the players play."

From Mary Mac's to Magic City, and everything in between -- Atlanta has a lot to offer. 

11Alive is where Atlanta speaks so we asked Atlantans their suggestions for what guests coming to town for the Super Bowl should do and see while they're here.

Here is a visitors guide to the city from the people who call it home.

Well, you have to grab ATL's lemon pepper wings. From extra seasoning to extra crispy -- Atlanta makes them the way they're supposed to be made. Make sure you ask for your celery on the side, some places are a tad bit stingy with the veggies. American Deli, The Wing Bar, Dugans, Wingnuts and A-Town Wings are great wing cafes.

Food | Welcome to the South if it's your first time here

Busy Bee's soul food, Slutty Vegan, Mary Mac's, Old Lady Gang, Chic-fil-A Dwarfhouse, Sun Dial, Varsity, Puff & Petals and BQE Restaurant & Lounge just to name a few. 

Atlanta also has widely popular food halls that each have several restaurants inside. Check out Ponce City Market or Krog Street Market.

Clubs | You haven't partied until you've partied in Atlanta. If you get the chance, check out some of these places.

The Sivas, Escobar, Circa Lounge, M-Bar, U-Bar, Compound and Bulldog are some of the most notable clubs in the city. If you want to run into some celebs --here's where they will be.

Strip Clubs | Atlanta is known for our strip clubs

The Clermont Lounge is Atlanta's oldest strip club and it's iconic. Rappers are always talking about Onyx, Blue Flame and Magic City, so if you're a hip hop fan you can see the music in action.

There's also Swinging Richards for people who want to see men.

Places | We have a whole lotta' history in this city, so you definitely want to visit these spots.

MLK Historic Center, The Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca Cola, Zoo Atlanta, Fernbank, Underground, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Stone Mountain, T.I's Trap Museum, and Skyview Atlanta Ferris Wheel. 

Shopping Centers | 

West End Mall is near where the Super Bowl will be played. Lenox Mall, Ponce City Market, Zinah Artistic Retail, Dekalbs Farmer's Market, Atlanta BeltLine, Little Five Points, Shops Around Lenox and Phipps Plaza. 2019 Super Bowl popup shops in Atlanta | A full list
