Exploring Atlanta’s Neighborhoods

Map of the hotel location and nearby sights

Annual Meeting attendees are encouraged to explore the restaurants, bars, shops, and attractions of Atlanta that are spread out across the city’s neighborhoods. Have a few hours between sessions? Hang out in the Buckhead area for legendary shopping at Phipps Plaza, Lenox Square, or the various boutiques and galleries. Midtown is the heart of the arts with the High Museum, Alliance Theater, and Fox Theater, plus dining and nightlife that is all the rage.

If you are looking to go where the locals go, visit Virginia Highlands’ boutiques and laid-back bars, live jazz in Castleberry Hill, and Little Five Points with its bohemian shopping, bars, restaurants, and an Elvis shrine at the Star Community Bar.
