In an effort to bring more tourism to downtown Atlanta and to ease transportation around the attraction corridor, Atlanta has installed a streetcar that runs between Centennial Olympic Park and the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site. There are twelve stops along the way, many of which are conveniently located at or near tourist destinations. The streetcar itself is rather handsome and looks like a trolley car. The inside is spacious and offers large windows through which you can see the city. Compared to other public transit options, the streetcar is inexpensive-only $1 for each ride. Although anyone can ride in order to get around town, the streetcar is obviously aimed at tourists who wish to visit the different sites in the downtown area. Using the streetcar, visitors can quickly get to the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, Sweet Auburn Market, Centennial Olympic Park, Georgia Aquarium, The World of Coca-Cola, National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Philips Arena, Georgia Dome, College Football Hall of Fame, Underground Atlanta, Georgia State University, CNN Center, and Skyview Atlanta.
The Atlanta streetcar is a fun and easy way to experience downtown Atlanta, offering a way to get to different destinations quickly, all while being able to see the city around you for a good price. Since the streetcar can serve as a hub of sorts for downtown Atlanta explorations, it can also be the center of a great date. Take a trip around the streetcar and stop off at any attractions that sound good to you!
