Is Atlanta pedestrian friendly?

Jump to last reply

Wife and I will spend a week in Atlanta from 27th March to 03rd April.

We are staying at the Renaissance in the airport area.

I usually don't like driving in big cities and never rent a car in European large cities. When in San Francisco, the rented car was parked for the three days at the downtown hotel and was only taken out of the garage to visit Golden Gate and drive away from SF.

On the other hand cities like Miami, Orlando and small cities around the US are fiercely pedestrian hostile.

If wife and I could spend the week using the week MARTA pass it would be great. Will rent a car for day trip(s) from Atlanta and or for any must see attractions which are not doable with public transportation.

Any inputs will be most appreciated.

P.S.: This would be the first time we would not have a car in the US territory.
