Bike, walk, run, or dine on the Atlanta Beltline
The Atlanta BeltLine is Atlanta’s newest outdoor space and is comprised of 22 miles of unused railroad tracks circling the core of the city’s in-town neighborhoods. From trails and walkways to open green space and parks, the Atlanta BeltLine works to connect people throughout the city.
Thousands of visitors flock to the Atlanta BeltLine each week as a way to get exercise, explore Atlanta’s neighborhoods and spend time with friends. A world-class amenity similar to New York City’s High Line, the Atlanta BeltLine is also home to Art on the BeltLine, the Southeast’s largest temporary public art project. Make a day of your BeltLine exploration by relaxing in Historic Fourth Ward Park or by grabbing a drink and lunch at one of the many restaurants situated along the BeltLine.
