EXPERIENCE ATLANTA’S HERITAGE Civil rights history in Atlanta is rich all year round, but Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday in January and Black History Month in February will kick off a year of commemorations. BY LIESL MERKEL AND CAROL CARTER The year 2018 commemorates the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination (April 4), as well as the 50th anniversary of the King Center for Nonviolent Social Change’s founding. Start the new year with a meaningful splash at The King Center for Nonviolent Social Change. Events include Students with King, where children are introduced to leaders and friends who worked with or shared experiences with Dr. King (Jan. 9-11); the Book Event with literary artists from the civil rights movement and the King family (Jan. 12); the Salute to Greatness Awards Gala (Jan. 13); Beloved Community Talks, where the center promotes Dr. King’s vision of The Beloved Community (Jan. 15); and the Commemorative Service at Ebenezer Baptist Church (Jan. 15). For more information on these two special anniversaries and programming during your stay, visit www.mlk50forward.org. Other events surrounding Martin Luther
King Jr. Day include the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Lecture and Conversation on Jan. 25 at Morehouse College, King’s alma mater. Titled “Where Do We Go From Here? An Intergenerational Conversation,” the panel will feature Martin Luther King III, the Rev. Raphael Warnock, State Representative Stacey Abrams and Ambassador Andrew Young [www.morehouse.edu/events]. Piedmont Park celebrates Jan. 15 with the MLK Day 5K Drum Run, featuring a 3.1 mile drumline and live music and events [www.mlkday5k.com]. The High Museum of Art’s civil rights photography exhibition “A Fire that No Water Could Put Out,” reflects on the 50th anniversary of Dr. King’s assassination includes historical works mingling with contemporary photographs and are arranged into three sections: the era of Dr. King’s leadership, the year of his death, and the civil rights movement’s legacy. Carry the commemorations into February
with the Black History Month Parade, which will start at Hurt Park on Edgewood Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood and will celebrate on the streets of surrounding areas. www.blackhistorymonthparade.com If you’re in town during a different weekend, you can still walk in greatness along the street where Dr. King was born, along Auburn Avenue in the Sweet Auburn Historic District. Relive history by visiting the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, which includes a visitor center, Ebenezer Baptist Church, King’s birth home, the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame, the tombs of Dr. King and his wife Coretta Scott King and the King Center. Chief among the poignant exhibits are the many messages of love and nonviolence, peace and understanding. One highlight is the historic Ebenezer Baptist Church where Dr. King, his father and grandfather all preached. No longer used for Sunday services (those are reserved for the new Ebenezer Church just across the street), the older church is open for self-guided tours. Sit in a pew and feel history envelope you as you listen to sermons by Dr. King. Next door, find the tombs of both Dr. and Mrs. King and the eternal flame that
symbolizes Dr. King’s hope for justice, peace and equality. Inside Freedom Hall, see Dr. King’s key to room 307 at the Lorraine Hotel in Memphis where he was assassinated and a draft of his Nobel Prize acceptance speech. Stroll along the International Civil Rights Walk of Fame and stand in the footprints of civil rights leaders including former UN Ambassador and Atlanta Mayor Andrew Young, congressman John Lewis, activist Hosea Williams, Rosa Parks, former president of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference Joseph Lowery, Atlanta Constitution editor Ralph McGill and many more. www.nps.gov/malu Then, visit Center for Civil and Human Rights, where the exhibition “Rolls Down Like Water: The American Civil Rights Movement” features a history of Atlanta’s role in the movement. Walk up the stairs into a recreated Lorraine Hotel and sit at a mock lunch counter and try to remain calm and nonviolent as you listen through earphones to recordings of angry individuals shouting insults. View a panorama of the March on Washington and be mesmerized by the sights and sounds. The basement of the Center houses a rotating selection of Dr. King’s personal papers and items. Another level maintains a rotating view of the world’s human rights efforts and how it affects the lives of everyone. www.civilandhumanrights.org Tour Atlanta’s civil rights history with Civil Rights Tours, run by Tom Houck, who once was a driver and personal assistant to Dr. King and his family. Houck’s three-hour tours include the Rev. Ralph David Abernathy’s West Hunter Street Church, the office on Auburn Avenue where leaders made decisions that changed the world, the site of the famous Atlanta Student Movement Rush Memorial Church, and the grave at South-View Cemetery of Daddy King, Dr. King’s father. www.civilrightstour.com Culminate your tour of civil rights history at Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, where you’ll find artifacts from his presidency and exhibitions on how former President Carter continues working for the civil and human rights of people around the globe. www.jimmycarterlibrary.gov

WALK, BIKE OR SKATE: THERE’S LOTS TO SEE AND DO ON ATLANTA BELTLINE’S EASTSIDE TRAIL Extending three miles from Midtown to Reynoldstown, the Atlanta BeltLine’s Eastside Trail stitches together a slew of historic neighborhoods, each with unique dining, shopping and entertainment options. Start your BeltLine excursion at Piedmont Park and meander along the wide, paved trail lined with a series of outdoor art installations. Interesting stop offs include the quirky Paris on Ponce for an eclectic mix of vintage furniture, décor and oddities. Ponce City Market looms over the BeltLine trail. The largest adaptive reuse project in Atlanta’s history boasts a Central Food Hall, retail and Skyline Park entertainment area on the roof for fun and boardwalk-style games overlooking Midtown. Farther along, the 17acre Historic Fourth Ward Park offers fun for the whole family: catch air at the Skatepark; climb, slide and swing with the kids at the playground; or relax or toss a football on the expansive green space. All that activity can work up an appetite and thirst. Inman Park, Krog Street Market and a variety of stop offs in between are sure to satisfy. Choose among Fritti for pizza and other Italian specialties; Barcelona Wine Bar for Spanish tapas and beverages; Ladybird Grove & Mess Hall for elevated campfire cuisine and craft cocktails in an indoor/outdoor setting steps from the trail; and Krog City Market for a diverse mix of eateries including Fred’s Meat & Bread, Gu’s Dumplings, Superica and The Little Tart Bake Shop.

WHERE TO SEE ATLANTA’S CIVIL RIGHTS MONUMENTS

BYRON E. SMALL
Atlanta is known as the spiritual center of the American civil rights movement. But even before leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Andrew Young became icons of the movement, African-Americans in the city were paving the way for the tumult and change to come. Several of the city’s civil rights monuments can be found at the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, but there are others.

4 MUST-VISIT PARKS WITHIN 30 MINUTES OF DOWNTOWN ATLANTA
Heading out of the city for a nature-rich adventure is hardly a hassle. Within a half-hour drive of Atlanta are incredible parks. You’ll find thick forests and serene, rocky creeks that are sure to ease the tensions of the big city. Whether it’s a stress-busting hike to a rewarding mountaintop view, a calming ride by canoe or powering along the ridges of a scenic lake on a stand-up paddleboard, an outdoor excursion that feels worlds away from the city is actually only minutes from Downtown.
KENNESAW MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield, a national park spanning nearly 3,000 acres, features more than 22 miles of trails, all rich in

history and lush in natural beauty. The park’s best adventure is its 11-mile eponymous trail loop, which is the best fit for skilled hikers prepared for a day-long trek. From the visitor center, ascending switchbacks guide you through a forest rife with wildflowers, ferns and rocks, with plenty opportunity to spot wildlife -deer, birds and more. A sweeping view of the

miles of green and the Atlanta skyline emerges early on as you reach the summit at 1.1 miles; as you descend, you’ll get a nice glimpse of the small-but-mighty Little Kennesaw Mountain nearby. After looping through to Pigeon Hill, you’ll eventually cross the bridge over Noses Creek before ultimately reaching the expansive meadow of Cheatham Hill, the Illinois Monument and a Civil War-era church at 7.9 miles. A beginner-ready Environmental Trail is great for spotting wildlife, especially from one of the relaxation-ready benches along the boulder-lined creek. And for mid-level hikers and runners, the Big Mountain Trail offers a quicker, though still challenging, trip up to the striking summit vista.
STONE MOUNTAIN PARK The Walk-Up Trail to the summit at Stone Mountain has to be one of Georgia’s most traveled, and for good reason: The view on a clear day is absolutely unbeatable. Climbing to 1,686 feet above sea level earns hikers and runners a far-reaching view that includes both the downtown Atlanta skyline and the impressive North Georgia Mountains. There is, of course, the option to travel in relaxation via

the park, there are shaded picnic spots for midday lounging, plus campsites and yurts available for overnight stays. The whitewater community considers Sweetwater Creek one of the top spots for kayaking in Georgia, and hikers, of course, will fall head over boots for its exceptionally scenic trails: The Yellow (East Side) Trail boasts an elevation gain of 350 feet, and the White Trail features remote sections full of wildlife and an undisturbed patchworks of plants. The Red (History) Trail follows the rush of the whitewater rapids to the ruins of the five-story New Manchester Mill. -Originally written by RootsRated Media for Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau
the Summit SkyRide, but you’d miss out on the challenge of rocky terrain, the intensity of elevation gains and the swaths of sun-drenched grass and, in the springtime, the eye-catching crimson blooms of rare succulent plants. While the sights atop the 600-foot granite dome are easily the park’s biggest draw, there’s even more to explore -- the landmark park covers a healthy 3,200 acres, after all. Various trails, ranging from lengthier treks with steep drops to leisurely jaunts of less than a mile, circle the base of the mountain. Stone Mountain Lake, a steadily calm 300-acre oasis, is perfect for stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing and kayaking -- fishing, too. On the paved designated roadways, cyclists can hit new speeds, and the sidewalks alongside them are ideal for runners.
Sweetwater Creek State Park
PANOLA MOUNTAIN STATE PARK With a 100-acre, mint-condition granite monadnock as its centerpiece, Panola Mountain State Park is another of the state’s gems. Part of the Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area, the park is located in Stockbridge, just 15 minutes outside the city. You’ll find a series of open, public trails that wind around the mountain, giving you a wide variety of options. There’s a stellar view on the short but rewarding Outcrop Trail, and the Watershed Trail highlights two creeks that drain into the Piedmont uplands. Along the paved Panola Mountain and Alexander Lake PATH Trails, clocking in at about 5 miles altogether, skaters, bikers, runners and dog-walkers get elevated views of the lake below after breezing through a deciduous forest lined with rocky outcrops and carpeted by bright lichen moss. To get to the mountaintop, though, you’ll need a guide. Snag a trip with an expert park ranger to see the perfectly preserved summit -try a sunset hike for an especially memorable experience. Panola Mountain State Park also offers archery lessons and tree-climbing expeditions (including an overnight stay in a treetop), all of which can be easily organized by making a reservation.

NEW YOU IN THE NEW YEAR The start of 2018 brings many new year’s resolutions. Resolve to get in shape while looking your best with new athletic gear, then wind down at one of many hotel spas around the city. BY CAROL CARTER
LULULEMON ATHLETICA What: No matter where you are in Atlanta, there’s a lululemon Athletica store nearby. The great thing about this technical athletic apparel here is that it is designed by athletes for athletes. That means you get the stretch and comfort you need to maximize your workout with style appeal. The women’s Swiftly Tech crew shirt inhibits the growth of odor-causing bacteria, while the men’s version is the Metal Vent Tech shirt. Layer on a Rest Less Pullover during a chilly run or hike, and long sleeved tops, hoodies and vests will keep you warm during the cooler days. Where: The Shops Around Lenox store is located in Buckhead, the neighborhood known for high-end shopping. More locations include Ponce City Market in Old Fourth Ward, Westside Provisions District on Howell Mill
Road and Perimeter Mall, a bit north of the city. If you are watching your budget, there’s even a lululemon Athletica at North Georgia Premium Outlets, about an hour north on Georgia 400.
ATHLETA What: Find pieces designed to perform, including Yogini tanks, Shadow Stripe Chi Tees and Luxe hoodies. Athleta is the home of Sculptek tights. They hug. They smooth. And, they hide any jiggles (not that you have any). A new arrival for girls is printed Chit Chat Tights for exercising or just chilling out. Streetwear includes Criss Cross Dresses, (Deemed “beyond soft,”) and the roomy Easy Cozy Karma Jacket. Where: Find an Athleta store in Atlantic Station, an open-air shopping district in West
Midtown; and at Lenox Square, an upscale mall in Buckhead, a neighborhood often called the “Beverly Hills of the East.”
MOUNTAIN HIGH OUTFITTERS What: Mountain High Outfitters is the place to find windbreakers, beanies and even stem-free wine glasses (for après workout, of course). Mountain High stocks everything you need for backpacking, bouldering, camping, caving, climbing, hiking, biking, yoga, skiing, trail running, slack lining, paddle boarding and fly fishing. The men’s Nano Puff Vest from Patagonia looks and feels toasty and warm. Pendleton’s Texting Gloves for women not only are colorful, but are designed for easy phone access while keeping your hands warm. Where: Shop the Ponce City Market store in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward or the Buckhead store on West Paces Ferry Road.
ASICS What: ASICS specializes in high-performance footwear, apparel and accessories for sports including tennis, running, training and golf. A seamless bralette is made from chafe-free knit with mesh texture front and back for
