Running in Atlanta, Georgia takes some planning. The city is very spread out and development has been car centric. But things have been improving. If you you are downtown, try to stay in the Midtown area, which provides access to fabulous Piedmont Park, the ever-growing BeltLine trail, and lovely residential areas. In the areas to the north with large concentrations of businesses and hotels (Perimeter, Silver Spring, Alpharetta), there are usually 1–2 good running options — though you might need a car to get there. Further afield, highlights include the Silver Comet Trail to the north, and Stone Mountain to the east.
