June Streetcar Experience: Luckie at Cone
Each month, we hop off the Streetcar and explore the surrounding area by foot to give you a current listing of what’s happening at our spotlighted stop.
In June, we’re highlighting Luckie at Cone, located in the Fairlie-Poplar district. This highly walkable neighborhood is filled with business, culture and history and is just a few blocks from major Downtown anchors like Centennial Olympic Park, Woodruff Park and Georgia State University.
Use the #StreetcarExperience tag when posting about your Streetcar outings!
The Luckie at Cone stop is surrounded by convenient parking options. This is a great stop to park the car and ride the rails, exploring the whole of Downtown, from the Centennial Park Distric to the King Historic District. Explore our interactive parking map to learn more.
Step into the new AIDS Memorial Quilt Visitor Center, where you can view panels from the quilt that weighs 54 tons and contains 97,000 names. Stop by the Open House from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, June 2 & 3. Be among the first to see the 2,500 square-foot storefront site, explore The Quilt’s new interactive exhibits, see some of the newest Quilt panels along with historic memorabilia, and celebrate Atlanta’s newest downtown destination.
