Strolling at Midtown Atlanta (Peachtree Street Northeast – Atlanta Walk Part 1)
After visiting Margaret Mitchell House last November 20, 2015, I thought that it was still early to wrap-up my day and since its my last day in Atlanta, as soon as I left the museum past 5 PM in the afternoon, I decided to walk the Peachtree Street. I know that there are so many streets named with Peachtree in Atlanta but my walk happened specifically in Peachtree St NE. The starting point was 10th St NE towards North Avenue NE which all within Midtown. Since it was November and the beginning of autumn season, there were still greens in the trees on both side of the road that made the Peachtree St NE so pleasant for walk. At the part of Peachtree Street that I walked, I saw some significant structures and buildings along the way. Below are some of the snapshots that I captured in my walk.
At 10th St NE

The Georgian Terrace
When I passed the Georgian Terrace Hotel at that time, I don’t have idea that it was historical, I recently learned that the Hollywood stars of legend movie “Gone With the Wind” stayed in the hotel.
