Welcome to the heart of the city

Downtown is always abuzz with its collection of major attractions like the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, and the Center for Civil and Human Rights. Tack on the Mercedes-Benz Stadium, State Farm Arena, and an abundance of hotels all within walking distance, and you’ve got yourself a wildly popular location for visitors.

Though Downtown attractions will keep you plenty occupied, the locals will tell you, there’s so much more than what meets the eye. Contained within the Downtown district are several smaller neighborhoods, each with individual character.

Castleberry Hill is filled with history and provides the perfect blend of eclectic artistry and city spirit. Stroll this neighborhood to discover a tribe of galleries and public art. Speaking of which, the neighboring Fairlie-Poplar district is a hub for small performing art venues and studios. Strolling Sweet Auburn, you’ll experience civil rights history in its greatest sense. Birthplace to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the area pays homage to the King’s life and legacy.
