Question: What is Underground Atlanta?
Answer:

Underground Atlanta is an entertainment district located Downtown Atlanta. At Underground Atlanta you'll find a mix of dining options, cultural activities and some shopping and vendor carts.

Underground Atlanta is convenient to the Downtown hotels, as well as the Georgia World Congress Center and AmericasMart. This makes it a popular destination for visitors to those places.

The exception to this is when Underground Atlanta plays host to popular holiday celebrations like the Peach Drop on New Years Eve.

Underground Atlanta does have a few casual dining options and a food court that can be good for a quick lunch if you are in the area. It is also a good place to find Atlanta souvenirs and merchandise. For those looking to see a show, the AtlantTIX stand offers discounted day-of tickets for shows at local theaters around Atlanta. On weekends, you can take a guided history walking tour of Atlanta.

Underground Atlanta is most easily accessed via the Five Points Marta Station. There is also a large parking garage if you prefer to drive. The area can be a little bit suspect late at night, so take caution walking around Downtown if you are visiting Underground Atlanta for their nightlife options.
