We’re happy to say that Atlanta is unlike any other city in the nation. With the perfect mix of history and excitement, there is always plenty to do here. Best of all, the Loews Hotel is right in the heart of everything. Piedmont Park, the High Museum of Art, the Fox Theatre and more are all steps away.
Krog Street Market
Fodor’s Travel ranks Krog Street Market as one of the best food halls in the US. Built in a 1920’s warehouse, this west coast-style market is part of Atlanta’s intown culture. You’ll discover stalls selling specialty produce, goods, and prepared food, along with a few southern-grown restaurants and retailers.
Ponce City Market
Developed in the historic Sears, Roebuck & Co. building in Atlanta, Ponce City Market opened its doors in 2015. It’s the area’s largest adaptive reuse project and has quickly become a vibrant community hub with unique eateries, shops, flats and offices. The market infuses vigor and excitement into this historically-signiﬁcant structure, located in one of Atlanta’s most cherished neighborhoods along Atlanta’s new Beltline. Visit the market and then take a stroll on the Beltline.
The Atlanta BeltLine is a sustainable redevelopment project that was recently paved along a historic 22-mile railroad path that connects several Atlanta neighborhoods. It’s a great place for a break from your business trip, and also a fun place to work into your Atlanta getaway. The Eastside Trail is perfect for running or biking with friends. The path is wide enough to run or bike in pairs without causing issues for others that might be doing the same. Dogs love the BeltLine, too!
The Georgia Aquarium houses 120,000 animals in more than eight million gallons of water. Via a path of more than 60 exhibits, this Atlanta tourist attraction tells a global water story, with features modeled after the greatest zoos and aquariums in the world. Each exhibit is designed to inspire, entertain and educate.
Just steps from the Loews Atlanta Hotel is the leafy 189-acre Piedmont Park. It was created in 1895 and has been a hit with locals and visitors to Atlanta ever since. In addition to hosting fabulous special events, the park has several miles of paved pathways that are great for walking, running, biking and inline skating. Dogs are welcome, as long as they are on a leash; several of the park's water fountains even have a ground-level basin for your four-legged friend to use.
Centennial Olympic Park
This unique 21-acre park performs a dual mission: it serves as Georgia's lasting legacy of the Centennial Olympic Games and it anchors efforts to revitalize residential and commercial development in Georgia’s capital city. The Park sponsors community-wide free events, including the Fourth of July Celebration, Wednesday Wind Down concert series and Fourth Saturday Family Fun Days.
