The new outdoor home to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, VERIZON WIRELESS AMPHITHEATRE AT ENCORE PARK, is perfect for north Atlantans overwhelmed with $4 per gallon gasoline treks to downtown con-cert venues. The $35 million amphitheater seats more than 12,000 and covers 45 acres in Alpharetta, yet the shows feel intimate. An impressive upcoming lineup includes John Mayer in August, O.A.R. in September, and the Black Crowes and Phil Lesh in October. Plus, the three separate public parking lots allow for a nearly hassle-free exit that cuts your idle time in half. The best perk? Clean, low-humidity restrooms.
