Atlanta - Meandering Midtown

Atlanta is a city filled with history, culture and good times. The hub of the South blends modern with classic, Southern charm with technology and the arts with fun, as well as sugar blends in Southern tea. It all happens in Midtown, just minutes from discounted Atlanta hotels. There are several ways to tour Midtown. You can take a walking tour, or tour on bicycles. In fact, there is a bicycle dinner tour which helps you burn off the calories between all of those scrumptious courses at the finest restaurants.

Midtown is home to many historic buildings and stately homes in prominent neighborhoods. Tour the Victorian influenced Peters House built in 1883, and then the Margaret Mitchell home in a Tudor Revival style or Ivy Hall where the Savannah College for Art and Design now holds classes. Take in a show at the historic Fox Theatre, where musicals and ballet can be enjoyed. For more of a diverse entertainment experience, the Woodruff Arts Center offers premiere plays at the Alliance Theatre. Chastain Park Amphitheater is where the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performs under the stars on warm Atlanta nights. Wander the exhibits at the Atlanta Contemporary Art Center and the High Museum of Art. Next, all ages will be fascinated by the Center for Puppetry Arts with collections from all over the world. Millennium Gate offers an expansive indoor gallery of history and art.

Midtown is the home to many yearly festivals such as the Dogwood Festival in the spring which attracts local artists. The Atlanta Jazz Festival overflows the city with music as it spills out into the streets. In the summer is the National Black Arts Festival, and later in October when the weather cools, the Taste of Atlanta heats up the palates of locals and visitors alike. Any time of year, the clubs in Midtown like the Sutra Lounge and the Aurum keep the evenings alive and the music flowing.

For a touch of serenity or just basking in the fresh air, wander Piedmont Park situated on the inner city Lake Clare Meer, and the adjoining Atlanta Botanical Gardens. If you love sidewalk cafes, shopping out of the way boutiques and quaint galleries, head to Atlantic Station. You can catch a free shuttle from the Arts Center, just a short trek from many cheap Atlanta hotels.
