Creative Loafing Best of Atlanta Awards Honor the Atlanta BeltLine Again!

The folks at Creative Loafing have once again been hard at work on their annual “Best of Atlanta” issue, and we couldn’t be more excited to see the Atlanta BeltLine with nods in seven categories from the staff and readers!

The Southwest Trail was honored as the staff’s pick for Best Urban Hike for its “rustic splendor.” With Art on the Atlanta BeltLine in full swing, there’s even more to see on your scenic hike:

Don’t expect an admission fee to see art on your hike: the Atlanta BeltLine was also chosen as the Best Free Thing to Do in Atlanta! Along with that honor, the Atlanta BeltLine was picked as the Best Jogging Path and Best Place to Ride Your Bike.
