Where once there was a forgotten railroad, now there is a beautiful path to explore the wonders of Atlanta! The Atlanta Beltline is a 33-mile multi-use path that has come to life in fits and starts since its humble beginnings in 2005. Some sections are finished, paved, tree-lined, cosmopolitan promenade. Some of it is still fairly rough but good for hiking. But all of it is worth exploring. Here are some of the highlights of Atlanta’s Beltline.

See the City

Like the High Line in New York or the Bloomingdale Trail in Chicago, the Beltline has taken an abandoned rail line and built a walkable path around Atlanta. The path connects neighborhoods and opens up new opportunities to investigate new parts of the city. As more and more sections have been developed, new businesses have sprung up, so you are never far from great shopping, dining, desserts, and drinks. Plus, part of the development of the path is the development of the land around it, which is bringing more than 1,300 acres of gorgeous parks to enjoy!


One of the best parts of the Beltline is the opportunity to see hundreds of works of art by local and international artists. Murals and statues line the walk. Colorful chalk masterpieces can be seen in the summer before they are worn away by the elements. There are artworks to delight, make you think, and simply to inspire. If you see a blank wall on your journey, chances are it won’t be blank for long!


On any given day, you might encounter art festivals, yoga classes, fun-runs, farmers’ markets, concerts, Zumba, street performers, and more! The Beltline has no shortage of special events and attractions. Whether you are looking for music, food, or just fun, the varying nature of the Beltline offers opportunities for a wide range of activities.
