What is there to do that is in downtown Atlanta?  Is it safe to walk around there in the business district?  What about the Buckhead area?  I will not have a car.

Re: Atlanta

  • The aquarium and world of coke museum are downtown. I wouldn't walk around by myself after dark.

    Buckhead is a pretty big area. Some parts better than the other.

  • Are you staying in a hotel in downtown? Which one? How long will you be in Atlanta?

    When I first visited atlanta I stayed at the W downtown. During the day I walked to the aquarium and to Piedmont park. As PP said, not a place to walk around by yourself at night.

    Buckhead has some nice places but is very spread out. There is a Marta train and buses but I have only ridden the train once from the airport to Buckhead and during that trip there was only one arrest on my car. Saying that, I did not feel unsafe on the train.

    Okay, I ride MARTA all the time and have never seen an arrest, that was a total random event for you.

    You could do Coke, Aquarium, CNN tour, all downtown. The High Museum is in Midtown. Buckhead is basically shopping and the Atlanta History Center (but you would need a car for that)

  • Downtown isn't somewhere I would walk around at night. I live in Midtown and I run every evening and walk around all the time here. There are lots of good restaurants in this part of the city.

    Buckhead is pretty spread out and not ideal for walking around. You'll find our huge mall, Lenox and more couture stores at Phipps plaza. 

    Marta is pretty easy, I ride it often and have never had any trouble.
