Here's the return to Downtown for a late afternoon stroll through some of the scenic areas of Atlanta. It's about 6 miles and we'll pass The Fox, Hard Rock Cafe, The Varsity, The Aquarium, The World Of Coca Cola, the Capitol, Georgia State Stadium*, State Farm Arena, Mercedes Benz Stadium and lots of other cool spots around Atlanta. We'll start right across from The Landmark Diner in front of the Rialto.

We're meeting in front of The Rialto. Please be there at by 3:45pm to check in and for introductions. We will leave at 4pm sharp - whether you're there or not!

We will be crossing streets so we'll keep the group fairly close together. Please wear apropriate clothing - especially shoes that are comfortable to walk 6+ miles on concrete!

ALSO - there are no public bathrooms that will DEFINITELY be open.  We have used some of the bars/restaurant bathrooms, but these are not always welcoming of non-customers.  Please take care of this BEFORE arriving at the hike.

Go to www.maps.google.com and copy the bold print coordinates in to the search bar. You can chose 'satellite view' to see the birds eye view. Please familiarize yourself with the parking lot and where to meet beforehand. 

Parking lot coordinates. There is a public parking lot on Luckie St. Please strongly consider parking here so we can walk you back to your car (it will be near dark when we are finished). The fee is $6. Not $6 for us to walk you back to your car - it's $6 to park there.   :)
