Things to Do in Atlanta

Midtown Atlanta

The Georgia Tech campus sits in the heart of Midtown Atlanta and just north of Downtown. Our city encompasses many neighborhoods, including the Airport area, Downtown, Midtown, Buckhead and Perimeter, as well as attractions in surrounding areas - Cobb County, Gwinnett County and Dekalb County.

Downtown includes sports venues like Philips Arena and Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the Georgia World Congress Center, Centennial Olympic Park, World of Coca Cola, Georgia Aquarium, CNN Center, The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change, Freedom Park, The Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, Center for Civil & Human Rights and College Football Hall of Fame. 

Midtown ranges from Tech Square & Piedmont Park to the Westside Cultural Arts Center and Atlantic Station. Visit The High Museum, the Margaret Mitchell House or stroll along The Beltline or Peachtree Street to dine or shop.

Venture farther north to Buckhead and Perimeter for more restaurant choices, shopping and entertainment venues. MARTA access is available along this corridor. Venture away from MARTA and the 85-75 Connector and Georgia 400, and you will find Gwinnett Arena in Gwinnett County, Six Flags over Georgia, White Water Park, SunTrust Park and The Battery in Cobb County, and Stone Mountain State Park in Dekalb County.
