Near MARTA (10 minutes or less walking distance from a station)
Downtown Atlanta is walkable, bikeable and transit-friendly and the home of Georgia State University. Currently there are limited grocery and shopping options besides several drug stores and the Sweet Auburn Curb Market. Rents tend to be cheaper downtown, but keep in mind that nearby stations do not have parking and many restaurants are closed on the weekends. On the plus side, you can enjoy short walks to concerts at The Tabernacle, festivals in Centennial Olympic Park and to events at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium and State Farm Arena.
