Going On Foot

We are a weak and vulnerable people, but we can walk a little, every once in awhile. Atlanta is not kind to pedestrians, in general, and yet there are some wonderfully walkable places here. Hark sidewalks and crosswalks, bike-ped advocates and young urban planners, we salute you!

The GSU area is very walkable and bejeweled with all sorts of coffee, waffle, and burrito joints.

Very walkably east of GSU is the Martin Luther King Memorial and Auburn Avenue historic area. For refreshment, consider a game of checkers or billiards with beer.

A recent visit to Greenville, SC, reminded us that the folks who love art and love to make it their business, also love to walk around, to be on foot, to check out the scene from a more human point of view than the automobile provides. The up and coming Pendleton art district is bound to boom.
