Any Atlantans out there who would like to help out a strict urbanite refusing to give into sprawl? My SO and I will be there the first weekend in April and we will not be renting a car, so I was thinking staying in the Midtown area would be best. Are there any parts of Midtown that are preferable to others for us who like to be in walking distance of food and entertainment? We are both in our mid 30s and don't mind walking long(ish) distances during daylight hours. Every hotel I've seen is a bit more than I want to spend-I'd prefer under $150 a night; I've used Airbnb many times and have never had an issue with any of the places I've stayed.
Also, if anyone can give us a list of things we might like to, feel free. We definitely want to see Martin Luther King's home/Ebenezer Baptist Church, and most likely the CNN Headquarters. The aquarium is a possibility, but I live in a city with hard-to-beat museums, so it might get pushed down the list.
Thanks so much in advance!!
