What do two Downtown Atlanta parents do on a Saturday while their kid is away? A 6.5 mile walking & drinking tour of the city, of course! Here are photos from our trip, along with a map. (We ran out of steam in Grant Park and took MARTA home.)
Tips for a long summer walking tour of Atlanta:
- Find the shady side of the street. The summer sunlight is nice in small doses only.
- Know where the nearest cold beverage is. I recommend Lotta Frutta smoothies, the water fountains at the Carter Center, Hennepin Saison at Folk Art and the house brewed beer at Wrecking Bar.
- Know when to give in and take MARTA. Those trains & buses are air conditioned.
- Don’t walk on Memorial Drive. No shade, crappy sidewalks.
Happy walking, Atlanta!
