On Sunday you can enjoy Peachtree Street to yourself thanks to Atlanta Streets Alive. Almost 3 miles of Peachtree will be block off for 60 different walking and bike friendly activities. This free event starts at 2 pm with an art bike parade off Ellis Street. Enjoy many elaborately decorated bikes from artists all over Atlanta. Following the parade there will be live music, bike polo and yoga to participate in.
"So many people are afraid to ride their bikes openly on the street. This will be a time for them to enjoy riding, free from cars," said Rebecca Serna, Executive Director of the Atlanta Bicycle Association. Ride from downtown all the way to midtown on Atlanta's main drag.
If you're looking for something to do outside of the city head to Marietta for the Greek Festival.
