ATLANTA, GA – Join Alyssa Fagien as she takes you on a journey around Atlanta’s hottest restaurants, businesses, neighborhoods, and its people through ATL Bucket List.

When Fagien moved to Atlanta in 2014, she quickly fell in love with the large city. The number of foods to try, local cultures to explore, and places to visit quickly stacked up into a long bucket list. She then established ATL Bucket List in 2015, a platform that helps her share what she has explored in Atlanta.

With an extensive background in photography and marketing, Fagien has managed to garner over 200,000 followers on Instagram that closely follow her updates. Her followers have grown to trust her choices and are eager to visit the shops, restaurants, and venues she visited or attend the hottest events in the city.

Because of this, Fagien has had the opportunity to partner with brands such as American Express, Dunkin' Donuts, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Heineken, and have also been featured in multiple style magazines and newspapers.

During a time where lock-downs are administered everywhere around the world, Fagien’s work has shown to have a tremendous effect on local businesses everywhere. Through ATL Bucket List, she has also promoted local restaurants that made themselves available for online orders or take-out delivery. She has also posted GoFundMe campaigns that these restaurants have made in order to keep the business going and also help enable them to pay their employees.

In an interview with USA Today on March 24, 2020, Fagien reinforces the importance of social distancing and supporting local Atlanta businesses in every way possible to keep the community alive.
