Things to Do in Midtown Atlanta

This soulful community brims with art galleries, boutique shopping, hot entertainment venues boasting award-winning performances and fantastic outdoor spaces like the vast Piedmont Park, where there’s always something fun going on, from farmers’ markets to 5K races. 

Attracting families with kids from elementary through high school, Midtown not only offers a walkable, neighborhood feel, but a vibrant urban environment.

The dining is on point – enjoy date night at Empire State South, where you can dig into upscale southern specialties prepared by Top Chef Masters alum and James Beard award-winning chef Hugh Acheson. Or, grab the family and head to The Varsity, the largest drive-in theater in the world – be sure to order a fried pie.
