Cheap areas to stay in Atlanta

A visit to the self-proclaimed capital of the South doesn't have to be a bank-buster. Not only are there bargain food trucks touting BBQ briskets and Tex-Mex for cheap, but there are also plenty of budget-friendly hostels and inns. Just look to Cumberland on the outskirts of the city, where extended-stay motels clutch the main roadways leading into the Downtown. You could even bag a spot right on the edge of Centennial Park, by opting for one of the homestay apartments there. Or, go south to Summerhill, where comfortable stays meet the famous Turner Field.

Cheap hotels in Atlanta

Located on Atlanta’s south side, the Country Inn & Suites at the Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport offers bargain beds and no-frills accommodation close to the city's bustling departure lounges. There's also an indoor pool and free breakfasts. The Country Inn & Suites by Carlson is a similar story, with an outdoor pool, roaring fireplace, and gym, all just on the edge of the runways. Then there's the Inn at the Peachtrees. Perfect for those who want to be close to the action, it offers private guestrooms near the World of Coca-Cola and the acclaimed Georgia Aquarium.

Where to find cheap food in Atlanta

There's surely no substitute for those in search of bargain eats in Atlanta than the sprawling Atlanta Food Truck Park, which sits in Channing Valley on the north side. Expect gourmet meatball stands next to Mexican mashup foods, Indian tandoors near classic New Yorker hotdog sellers. On the other side of the city is the inexpensive neighborhood of Cabbagetown, loaded with Anglo-style pubs and the occasional oriental noodle joint. And to the north-east of that is Little Five Points, a place of casual pizzerias, taco bars, and local microbrews.

Cheap things to do in Atlanta

There are oodles of cheap, and even free, things to do in the sprawling city of Atlanta. You could start with a bout of history and culture, touring the famed National Historic Site at Sweet Auburn to reveal tales of a young Martin Luther King. Then, you could head to the Centennial Olympic Park nearby, where the great 1996 athletics competition is remembered in the fountains and flower beds. Joining the Castleberry Hill Art Stroll on a Friday evening is perfect for the culture vultures, who will love flitting between the contemporary galleries and photography workshops in the vibrant historic district. And when the southern sun dips, be sure to make a beeline for Little Five Points or Virginia-Highland, to hit the beer tasting galleries and enjoy the best of Georgian blues and live music.

Cheap ways to get around Atlanta

From Midtown to Downtown, Atlanta is a pleasantly walkable and cycle-able city, which is great news for travelers eager to keep the spending on the low. If you're going on 2 wheels, make use of the metropolis' cheap Relay Bike Share, and be sure to stick to the designated bike lanes. The Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority is a good alternative for going it alone, offering integrated connections of trains and buses across the town. Be sure to get a contactless Breeze Card to use the system.
