Instagram Worthy Reasons to Visit Atlanta in the Fall!

11 reasons to Visit Atlanta in the Fall!

Although I am sad to see another summer go in Atlanta, fall is definitely my favorite time of year. The summer months tend to be very hot and humid with daytime temperatures up to 92 degrees. But, during the fall, the weather cools down to 60 and 70 temperatures and there is less humidity in the air. In this quick post I will share with you Instagram worthy reasons to visit Atlanta in the fall!

1. The Parks & Trails:
As mentioned above, the weather is very pleasant during the fall. Besides the cooler temperatures you also get to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage. Red, yellow and auburn leaves line the streets and parks. One of my favorite parks in Atlanta is Grant Park. It is a very historic area and a quiet family friendly park. Within Grant Park you will find Zoo Atlanta which has fall events for Halloween as well as “Sippin Safari”. Piedmont Park in Midtown Atlanta is a great place to visit any time of year but in the fall they have a wonderful art festival. You can stroll though the park while enjoying live music and hundreds of local and national artists. Atlanta Botanical Gardens is located in Piedmont Park. During the fall they have a display entitled “Scarecrows in the Garden”. You can also enjoy live music and brew events. Candler Park is a very quaint neighborhood in Atlanta and they host a fall festival which showcases local food vendors and artists. You can even attend a tour of the homes in the area. Every weekend during the month of October, Stone Mountain Park hosts a pumpkin festival with puppet parades and costume contests. One of the best places to experience the fall foliage in Atlanta is on Silver Comet Trail. Go for a casual stroll or go bike riding or running while you take in the beauty all around you.

2. Food Festivals: Atlanta is a big foodie town so you can expect several food festivals in the fall. During Taste of Atlanta the streets of Midtown Atlanta are shut down for food, wine and dessert booths from restaurants all over the city. Another great food festival is the Atlanta Burger Battle which started last year. I really enjoyed sampling the juicy and creative burger offerings.

3. Atlanta Day Trips: There are several great towns nearby to visit in the fall. Take a road trip to Elijay for wine tasting, apple picking and the most delicious apple apple pastries, pies and cakes. Or, drive up to the North Georgia mountains for wine tasting. Last year I attend a fall festival at the Montuluce Winery. Oktoberfest in Helen Georgia is also very popular this time of year.
