Underground Atlanta contains some of the original streets of Atlanta and over 100 stores. It was originally not underground until the new Atlanta was built over. It makes for a very pleasant shopping experience with some very interesting stores.
We mostly go for the free concerts. A local station 99X puts on concerts all the time. Get a Freeloaders Card and enjoy the good music. The bands are usually well known and the crowds are huge.
There are lots of shops, Johnny Rockets, cool restaurants and bars all inside. The concerts take place outside.
Shopping, bars, restaurants, and nightlife are the main attractions of this place. It is the very center of Atlanta's exciting culture. Something is ALWAYS happening at Underground Atlanta.
Before the Civil War, this was the center of the city. During the Battle of Atlanta, most of it was burned by General Sherman's Union Army. But many of its old features and points of interest are noted by historical markers. For example, Humbug Square is where old-time hawkers, hustlers, and con artists once plied their nefarious trades. Today, modern street performers continue to attract crowds.
Where this underground "mall" now stands was where the original Atlanta once stood. There are lots of tourist shops, place to eat, and clubs. I wouldn't recommend planning to stay here for very long, but just a quick walk through.
Between the Five Corners MARTA bus/subway stop and the Coke museum is Underground Atlanta. There are a six blocks of stores and vendors (not just underground) -- typical tourist fare -- restaurants, souvenirs, shirts, etc. etc. -- just like the area near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.
Back before the Civil War, Atlanta thrived because of the railroads. To get away from the maze of tracks, Atlanta built viaducts over the tracks, and moved the city upstairs. The original center of the city was all but forgotten. Atlanta Underground was rebuilt in the late 1960's and there are a series of information plaques pointing out historic buildings and facades, etc.
This is an underground shopping mall full of pushcart vendors, casual eateries and stores. At the time I was there, November 2003, there was an exhibition of life size cows painted by various artists, to be auctioned (see my Atlanta travelogue).
Underground Atlanta used to be a lot more lively, but is still a fun place to go for a drink,
or just to walk through if Downtown.
Located near Five Points Marta Station, there is food, drink, shopping and games all underground Downtown Atlanta.
Also walking tours of the area begin here.....
Located in the heart of the city, Underground Atlanta offers a wide variety of shops, restaurants, and activities.
