ABOUT THESE TOURS

The series consists of ten tours that correspond to the ten sub-areas that make up the make up the Atlanta Beltline Planning Area

The tours last 3-4 hours and typically include a lunch stop somewhere along the line. The routes are mostly flat and paved but you you must be able to walk 5-7 miles at a moderate pace. You may participate in part or all of the route as long as you let our tour guide know in advance.

This tour begins at the Waffle House on Howell Mill. It ends where the Beltline corridor comes out onto Marietta Street. There will likely be an optional post-tour get-together at The Whelan. The entire tour will focus on Sub-area 8.
