Looking for something to do this weekend but don’t want to break the bank? Atlanta has lots of different things you can do for free that are sure to spark your interest. Grab a group of friends, new or old, and head over to some of these places in the city we love.

8 places to visit in Atlanta (for free!):

Old Fourth Ward Skate Park

Old fourth is full of Atlanta history. It is, after all, the birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr. Stroll through the neighborhood, shop with friends, and eat at some of the yummiest joints in town. On Sunday from 7-8 p.m., head on over to Old Fourth Ward’s skate park for free yoga and King of Pops popsicles.

Yoga in Colony Square

Colony Square is a mixed-use development at the corner of Peachtree Street and 14th Street. Every Wednesday at 6 p.m., grab your yoga mat and head over to Colony Square behind the #IAmMidtown letters for an hour worth of free yoga. Plus, if you go to four sessions, you’ll get some sweet swag!

Improv and Yoga at Atlantic Station

They say laughter is the best medicine. Every first Wednesday of the month at 8 p.m. join in on some improv in the park, or join in on free yoga every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. Be sure to arrive early to both events, they fill up quick!

Bike or Walk the BeltLine

The Atlanta BeltLine will span 33 miles when it’s completed in 2030, but for now, you can enjoy it in several sections. Each individual trail brings a unique experience. You can stroll and admire art installations sponsored by local for- and non-profit businesses, or or bring a blanket to watch performances and annual parades. Every Thursday from 6:30-7:30 p.m., join in on free workouts to Caribbean music. You never really know what you’ll find along the BeltLine.

Hang out at Piedmont Park

Pack a picnic, toss a ball, fly a kite, or bring your pup for a game of fetch at the dog park - your possibilities are endless. Piedmont Park is a great central location to hang out with old friends, and even meet new ones! You can put together a team for some fun afternoon soccer, softball or volleyball games. Be sure to head over there on Sundays at 7:00 p.m. for free concerts.

High Museum of Art

Are you an art lover? The High Museum of Art offers free admission from 12-5 p.m. every second Sunday of the month. Enjoy classic and contemporary pieces, and stay on the lookout for new exhibits - Yayoi Kusama’s exhibit Infinity Mirrors comes to Atlanta in November!

Jackson Street Bridge

This is one of the most iconic views of Atlanta’s downtown skyline. Head over to check out the sights from this bridge and take your snapshot with friends. Go during sunrise or sunset and you’re in for a real treat!

Jog Krog Street Tunnel

Another great place for photographers to get together, Krog Street Tunnel is home to some of  Atlanta’s incredible street art. Jog, bike, or skate your way through this tunnel and snap some pics along the way.
