"Underground Atanta" Underground Tip by TexasDave
Underground, Atlanta: 30 reviews and 48 photos
This is always on the list of tourist's Must-See's and many first time tourists ask What is it? and Why?
Answers: What is now the Underground was originaly street-level Atlanta with Train tracks and trolley cars. When the city modernized it was decided to build streets up on on a network of bridges and viaducts to get out of the way of the trains and trolleys. The elevated street provides the ceiling for the Underground and the whole 4 block area is now a climate-controlled street fair. There are many touristy shops, food outlets, and several late-night music/dance clubs. As many VTer tips indicate, late at night and on Summer weekends this place can get a heavy "Ghetto" vibe and makes some people uncomfortable. It is well patrolled and there are surveillance cameras, so it's not unusually dangerous- just use normal precautions and trust your instinct.
