Little Five Points, Atlanta

#2 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Atlanta
Neighborhood Landmark
Little Five Points is a district on the east side of Atlanta, Georgia, United States, 2+1/2mi east of downtown. It was established in the early 20th century as the commercial district for the adjacent Inman Park and Candler Park neighborhoods, and has since become famous for the alternative culture it brings to Atlanta. It has been described as Atlanta's answer to Haight-Ashbury, a melting pot of sub-cultures, and the Bohemian center of the Southern United States.NameThe name is a reference to Five Points, which is the center of downtown Atlanta. "Little" Five Points refers to the intersection at the center of the neighborhood. Two points are provided by Moreland Avenue (U.S. 23 and Georgia 42), which runs perfectly north/south, and forms the county line dividing Fulton and DeKalb. Two points are provided by Euclid Avenue, which runs northeast/southwest. The fifth point was originally Seminole Avenue, which met the intersection from the northwest, but the Seminole point was converted to a plaza and there is no longer a five-point intersection, though some regard McLendon Avenue, extending east from Euclid's southern intersection at Moreland, as the new fifth point.

  • Went there looking for clothes for a 1970's party. Found what I was looking for. Found clothes and wigs at a reasonable price.  more »
  • This small neighborhood to the Downtown is worth the trip. Home of alternative culture, it includes shops in colorful storefronts offering clothes, skateboards, tattoos, vinyl and comics, produced new age and marijuana for medical purposes. We meet as well harmless geeks as punks and a few beggars who do not insist once turned away. Among the stores don't miss: Criminal Records (for fans of vinyl and comics) and The Vortex, a restaurant bar forbidden at the age of 21 that the Burger was voted one of the 101 best in the United States. It is possible to park in a small public parking (free) or on a street in the neighborhood around. Attention, the parking in front of restaurants or gas stations places are reserved for customers. Otherwise he must borrow the Green Line or the Blue Line of the metro (Marta), direction Eastbound, and Candler Park and Inman Park station, then walk about 15 minutes. A bus (line 6) connects Candler Park in Little Five Points. A walk in the neighborhood of Decatur bobo is also recommended: narrow streets overlook a charming wooden houses, all in the shade of large trees.

Where to stay in Atlanta

Most of Atlanta's top hotels cluster in a downtown area with an easy-to-remember name--the Hotel District. The city's political and commercial hub, this area offers quick walking access to most major attractions. Another good area for boutique hotels and rental apartments is the ever-expanding Midtown, with proximity to most of Atlanta's big-name museums and theaters. If you're looking to save some money on accommodations, explore options in the more economical chain hotels outside downtown; from there, you can take the city's public transport to centrally located attractions and activities.
