A few days ago, we spent the evening at the Atlanta BeltLine, which is the former corridor around the core of Atlanta, Georgia. It’s currently under development in stages as a multi-use trail. The Atlanta BeltLine is one of the largest, most wide-ranging urban redevelopment programs in the United States, according to beltline.org. It’s 33 miles long with offshoots through certain neighborhoods. You’ll find lots of unique graffiti artwork, along with folks walking weird dogs, kids Inline skating (roller blading), skateboarding, folks zooming by on scooters and bikes on any given afternoon along the BeltLine.
This was the perfect outing for us; we so happen upon a day where the weather was not bipolar in Atlanta. . .not too cold. . .not too hot. . .nor fluctuating between the two. It was only one day after my hubby’s birthday, and a few days after mine. It’s one of those things you can do after work or whenever you’re just bored. It’s not only free, but your family will enjoy spending time walking an artsy trail right in the middle of the city. The bonus is you will get a chance to see a little bit of Atlanta while eating good food at the Ponce City Market off of Ponce de Leon Avenue. We visited shops there, and walked along the Beltline, seeing some of the weirdest people ever (many of them were not Atlanta natives for all the Georgia peaches out there ).
