Our property is located in Vine City, and The Big Blue offers close and walkable access to Mercedes Benz Stadium and the Georgia World Congress Center (8-10 minute walk or 2 minute Uber/Lyft). You can also walk to Clark Atlanta University, Spelman College, and Morehouse. You also have access to MARTA, the train station, in two directions, the Vine City Station or the Ashby Station about a 8-10 minute walk as well. MARTA gives you even easier access to all the amenities of downtown Atlanta, such as the Georgia Aquarium, Centennial Olympic Park, The CNN Center, the new state of the art State Farm Arena, The Apparel Mart aka America's Mart, The World of Coke, and the Center of Civil Human Rights to name a few. Other neighborhoods close by within a few bucks Uber/Lyft Ride are Castleberry Hill, Midtown, Ponce City Market, Krog Market, West Midtown and really just all of Atlanta Proper.
What you need to know about Vine a city neighborhood that is going through a 5 year revitalization project. To be clear, it's in transition with some rough looking areas HOWEVER, we have owned our home for over a decade and have NEVER had any safety issues. If you choose to stay here we ask that you don't judge the neighborhood by it's cover. The charm of the people in the neighborhood is multifaceted. There are some that have lived here for generations and can share historical stories with you and others that are just moving in to remodel and renovate some of the run down homes. Walking down the street you will see neighbors having a good time on their porches and children playing in the brand new playground a few blocks away. With that being said this an urban setting which affords you the proximity to the city. I would recommend taking Uber or Lyft to your destinations, instead of walking, if urban settings aren't your vibe at night.
Being so close to all Atlanta amenities and destinations, you do not need a car. However, rest assured, you will have access to a double garage should you choose to drive, as well as the ability to park on the street. There are very few homes in this area with garages so this is a bonus we are happy we can offer to our guests.
Being Downtown you will have access to MARTA, BIRDS (rentable scooters on city blocks), Bike Shares as well as Uber/Lyfts which are readily available.
You'll find this home perfect if your headed to Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) for a convention, or if your headed to Mercedes Benz Stadium for a game like SEC Championship, Celebration Bowl or Chick Fil A bowl, or if your headed to State Farm Arena for a concert or this years Super Bowl game!! They're all just 1/2 mile away!
