Atlanta BeltLine is one of the city's 'Don't you dare leave Atlanta without doing this!' experiences. As a sustainable redevelopment project, this once-abandoned railroad has completely transformed the city and will ultimately connect 45 in-town neighborhoods via a 22-mile loop of multi-use trails.
The scenic, rail-to-trail outdoor space unifies beautiful parks, imaginative little restaurants, breweries, public art installations and vibrant, popular community spots (from Ponce City Market to Krog Street Market) into one incredible outdoor amenity.
Check out these 5 fun things your group will experience along the BeltLine.

Art: Attendees can experience the local artistry of the city along the BeltLine. Here, you'll find the Southeast's largest temporary public art project, including massive urban murals at Krog Street Tunnel. Other whimsical art installations, like Tiny Doors, aren't as easy to spot, but so rewarding when discovered. Be sure to look up, down and all around so you never miss a beat.
Music: In addition to amazing visual art, this favorite local attraction is also home to vibrant street performers. Attendees will love hearing sporadic live performances under the overpass.
