Midtown is nestled just north of Downtown and south of the Buckhead and is a top destination for culture, fine restaurants and nightlife. It is also home to Atlanta's Piedmont Park. In recent years, West Midtown, an area on the outskirts of town bordering Buckhead, has grown tremendously with the addition of Atlantic Station and a flourishing art and culture district.
