The Peach Drop is Atlanta’s New Years Eve event that takes place next to Underground Atlanta and the Five Points MARTA station. Activities and live music take place much of New Year’s Eve day, and at night, a large peach drops in countdown to the new year.
The Five Points MARTA station is right next to the Peach Drop and Underground Atlanta. All trains stop at Five Points, making it an easy travel destination. The Peachtree Street exit out of the station will be closed Dec. 31, but there will be clear directions to other other exits. Look for the Broad Street Plaza signs for one of the better ways to leave the station near the RideStore. At street level, walk through the plaza and turn right on Marietta Street.
- MARTA trains will have extended service on New Years Eve. The last trains in all directions will depart Five Points at 2 a.m. Use the MARTA on the Go App for real-time train schedules.
- For those who wish to avoid some of the crowds, use the Peachtree Center Station (follow the signs to the Ellis Street exit off the train platform) and walk a few blocks south on Peachtree Street to reach the Peach Drop (plus, the station area is nicer and full of restaurants)
