Welcome to Atlanta
Atlanta is a blend of distinct, vibrant neighborhoods. Atlanta's famous Peachtree Street travels through the neighborhoods of Atlanta including Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead, connecting numerous attractions, restaurants, and shopping areas. Within a couple of miles off Peachtree, you'll find some of Atlanta's trendiest areas on the Eastside and Westside.
With major venues and attractions within walking distance of tons of hotels, it’s no surprise visitors gravitate toward Downtown Atlanta, but ask the locals and they’ll tell you there’s much more than that. A few blocks from marquee games at the Georgia Dome and Philips Arena is Castleberry Hill, a walkable neighborhood with some of Atlanta’s most undiscovered art galleries. Eat drink and be merry in the Luckie Marietta District, then take in performance art in Fairlie-Poplar. Downtown Atlanta is where a visitor can explore the obvious and discover the unexpected.
Midtown Atlanta has long been known as the heart of the arts, and for good reason. It’s home to both the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, as well as many other cultural institutions, but Midtown Atlanta is just as well known for housing Piedmont Park, one of the largest green spaces in the city. The area’s trendy boutiques and chic nightlife lend style to Midtown, where morning, noon, or night, there‘s always something going on.
By day, shopping heaven, and party central by night, Buckhead has long been the place to see and be seen. Atlanta’s most affluent area, Buckhead is full of everything from sweeping Southern mansions and high-end shopping to progressive restaurants and hopping nightlife. If a great cocktail is the only thing that will pick you up after you shop ‘til you drop, Buckhead is the place for you.
The hippest area of town is undoubtedly Atlanta’s Eastside. It has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, and Atlanta’s young and vibrant population has flocked to the area’s hot spots. From the Atlanta BeltLine to the Old Fourth Ward Skate Park and The Earl to Little Five Points, the Eastside is home to Atlanta’s fun and funky side. The Eastside is also a mecca for history buffs who tour the Sweet Auburn district and explore Atlanta’s role in the civil rights movement. Old or young, skinny jeans or not, the Eastside has something for everyone.
Atlanta’s trendy Westside sprung up almost overnight and swiftly became one of the most happening areas of the city. Also known as the Design District, the Westside is home to more home goods and interior design shops than we can count. And, yes, one of them is Ikea. From the retail mecca of Atlantic Station to the Westside Provisions District, the walkable Westside is the place to be to shop, eat and relax.
