“Be Downtown” is more than just a trending Instagram hashtag—it’s a directive. Be Downtown to experience the center city for yourself. We promise there is something here for every age, every interest, and every background, whether you’re a “Grady baby” or just visiting for the weekend.
What does that mean? It means you can walk the street grid of the Fairlie-Poplar historic district, where our city first took root. It means you can sit in the church where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached to Atlantans from his pulpit, then take a streetcar ride over to the Center for Civil and Human Rights to see how the struggle for global human rights continues. It means you can wander the food counters of the Sweet Auburn Curb Market or The Hub at Peachtree Center, where you’ll never run out of lunch hour options. It means you can see Drake perform at State Farm Arena and Atlanta United score the winning goal at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Day or night, weekday or weekend, Downtown is where Atlanta is happening.
