Downtown Walking Tour & Urban Picnic

Join us as we gaze into the past, present and future of Atlanta. Downtown Atlanta is changing and it's changing fast! One year from now, it will look and feel very different than it does today. Five years from now, you won't recognize it.

This unique walking tour (and urban picnic) is for those who like to explore the urban environment. This will be smorgasbord for all your senses. You will enjoy this tour if you like to meet fun and interesting people. You will love this tour of you like to take photos of cool stuff! If you participate, you can expect to see and learn about:

  • History of ATL (just the right amount)
  • Where the city was born (maybe the last opportunity to see and walk in the "Gulch")
  • Atlanta's oldest buildings (Fairlie-Poplar, Snake Nation, South Downtown)
  • Atlanta's newest buildings (The "Benz")
  • Buildings that are under construction (Hard Rock Hotel...)
  • Building that are being renovated (Georgia Aquarium, Southern Railway Building...)
  • Buildings that are still on the drawing board (The Gulch)
  • Redevelopment zones (Underground Atlanta, South Downtown...)
  • Improvements being made for Super Bowl LIII
