TOUR ROUTE
  • Our tour begins with a really fun hike through Historic Piedmont Park. This crown jewel of Atlanta's Emerald Necklace was the site of the Cotton States & International Exhibtion of 1895. It was also home to the first Georgia vs Auburn football game (1892) which has been called the "Deep South's Oldest Rivalry."
  • You will get to see the Atlanta Beltline corridor in its natural state as we explore the interim hiking trail from Monroe Street to Piedmont Road.
  • During this part of the tour, you will be walking on the oldest of four "belt lines" (railroad tracks) that were built around the City of Atlanta between 1871 and 1908. 
  • Our first pizza stop is Varuni Napoli Midtown, which makes what Zaggats calls “real deal” Neapolitan pizzas fired in wood-burning ovens (see photo above).
  • When we leave Varuni Napoli,  we will head south along the Piedmont Park Promenade which meanders its way through a beautiful forest along Clear Creek.
  • We will pass the Atlanta Botanical Gardens before making our way through the Six Springs Wetlands along an elevated boardwalk.
  • We emerge from the wetlands near two dog parks. Yep, two. Little dogs and big dogs each have their own park.
  • The interim hiking trails turns into the Eastside Trail where the Beltline corridor crosses Monroe Street. This 2.2 mile paved bike and walking path had over 1.7 million visitors in 2017!
  • Our second pizza stop is Brezza Cucina & Pizzeria, a stunning reataurant that is located in Ponce City Market.
  • We could spend all day in PCM but we have places to go and pizza to eat! While we are there you will learn about the fascinating history of this former Sears Roebuck & Co. distribution center and the surrounding area.
  • After Brezza we will walk off some more calories as we continue southward past Historic Fourth Ward Park. You will learn how this amazing Beltline project transformed acres of asphalt into an award-winning park.
  • After a 2-mile walk on the Eastside Trail we arrive at our third and final pizzaria which is Fritti. This sexy restaurnt is in the heart of Historic Inman Park's business district.
  • Eating on Fritti's patio, which features a giant red umbrella, is al fresco dining at its best. 
At this point, you will have several options...
  • Walk back to Park Tavern (2 miles) or your final destination.
  • Take a ride sharing service back to Park Tavern or your final destination.
  • Hop on a Relay Bike and ride back to Park Tavern or your final destination.
