Ask four different people about their favorite season in Midtown Atlanta, and you might get four different answers. Let us help clear things up! Below, we included everything you need to know about spring, summer, fall, and winter in the city. Take a look and decide for yourself!

Spring

Although Atlanta is a city, there’s still a wealth of natural beauty to enjoy here. That’s especially true in Midtown, with plenty of green spaces and scenic attractions like Piedmont Park and the Atlanta BeltLine trails. It’s truly stunning to see the parks and neighborhoods full of colorful dogwood blossoms and flowers waking up from their winter slumber. Plus, the warmer weather is a welcome addition to this beautiful atmosphere! Afternoon temperatures range from 70 to 80 degrees while the evenings bring cooler temperatures in the 50s and 60s.

You won’t have any trouble finding an upcoming event to suit your taste. Speaking of “taste” — there are several food festivals in the summer, too!

Fall

On the other hand, fall might be the ideal season for those of you who want a break from the strong sun and heat of summertime. It’s also lovely for leaf peepers! Midtown Atlanta provides a beautiful setting to admire autumn’s gift of gorgeous foliage. You can stroll through our historic neighborhoods or plan a picnic in Piedmont Park. Don’t forget to get a bird’s-eye view of all the vibrant colors from SkyView Atlanta or the Ponce City Market rooftop. (They’re both magical settings for marriage proposals, too!)
