Georgia’s Most Colorful Mall

plaza fiesta atlanta

A profusion of color

The Hispanic shopping center on Buford Highway is the town square for Atlanta’s burgeoning Latin American population. It’s nickname, El Rinconcito de Nuestro Pueblo, means the Little Corner of Our Little Town. With 280 stores, CBS Sunday Morning said “there’s everything you would find in a Mexican village.” The mall welcomes 4 million visitors a year. If you want a change of pace, forget nearby Lenox Square. Plaza Fiesta is where it’s at. I’ll take you inside.

    Wow, Doug! They’re really cleaned up that place since I was last there couple years ago. I remember feeling like I was in a Mexican village again. Thanks for the updates!!!

    Doug,

    Excellent photography. The photo of the little girl – you have that “way” to engage with all and bring out emotion! Bravo. Are you sure you weren’t on 24th St. in San Francisco????? Georgia, really? – Charles
