Things to Do - Midtown

From arts to restaurants to Piedmont Park, Midtown is one of the city's most vital centers. Take in a show at the Fox Theatre or Alliance Theatre, followed by a stroll through the park and perhaps a stop at the Margaret Mitchell House. The options are limitless in this walkable, cosmopolitan district.
