“The tour really opened my eyes to the exciting potential of the BeltLine for the future of the City of Atlanta!”

The BeltLine Partnership is now accepting reservations for a new year of BeltLine tours. Join the nearly 2000 BeltLine neighbors, real estate professionals, business people, nonprofit groups, and people from across the region who toured the BeltLine in 2007. In three hours, you will learn about the history of the BeltLine concept and actions to date, and you will see how the BeltLine connects neighborhoods around Atlanta.

The weekly tours begin this Friday, January 25th and run through Saturday, March 15th. (No tours will be offered March 21st and 22nd, and the tour schedule for the balance of the year will be posted later.) Tours are conducted on Friday and Saturday mornings beginning at the Inman Park MARTA Station. Participants should arrive at the station no later than 9:15am. Tours depart at 9:30am and return by 12:30pm.

Reservations are required. Capacity for each tour is 30 participants and tour dates will fill quickly. Reserve your seat soon to ensure your preferred tour date.

Currently, seats are available on the following tours:

Friday Tours

Saturday Tours

To reserve a seat, visit the BeltLine website and fill out the form at the bottom of the page. You can also call 404-446-4400 to leave a message with your name, phone number, email address, and preferred tour date. All email and voicemail reservation requests will be returned with 24-48 hours or on the next regular business day for Friday, weekend, or holiday requests.

In my humble opinion, the BeltLine is one of the most exciting progressive efforts this city has endeavored into in a long time. I’m definitely signing up for this. If you’re interested in learning more about the BeltLine, they have a resource library on their website for public reference as well.

    It’s a 25 year plan. They have to acquire and restore the old tracks they plan on running the BeltLine on first which will be pretty time consuming. They intend to open portions of it at a time as each branch is completed. I believe the first portion of the BeltLine is suppose to open in about 10 years. (Though the way this city runs, who knows.) Don’t take my word on that last one.
