Things to Do in the Area

ATL CityGuide HomePage (High Res)




Creative Loafing is an intensely local guide. We've been publishing a newspaper in the area since 1972 and just about all of the culture has been reported in the newspaper or on this website.

Looking for things to do in the area? We can direct you.

Here's our suggestion. Work off this page - start with the 5 Things to Do list below which are our recommendations for today's events. Not seeing what you want? Take a look at our more extensive list of today's events. Still not feeling it? See our suggestions below for ongoing events. Looking for cool things to do without laying out any dollars? Try our list of free things to do. If you are looking for events at the neighborhood level, take a look at our What's Going On to get the best local information available.
