I was wondering what cool walkable areas there are in Atlanta, where there's a lot of unique stores, restaurants, and bars clustered in an urban setting? I'm trying to think of an example, but I'm not really familiar at all with the city. I wanted to check it out over the Labor Day weekend.

Atlanta BeltLine Eastside Trail, offers over 3 miles of restaurants, bars, etc. along a multiuse trail. Walk, bike, or scoot. Connects Piedmont Park to Inman Park, Old Fourth ward and all the way to Reynoldstown. Offers food halls; Ponce City Market and Krog St Market.
Little Five Points is easily connected to the BeltLine, via Freedom Park Trail and offers an eclectic mix bars and restaurants.
Downtown Atlanta(also connected to BeltLine by Freedom Park Trail) is where Dragon*Con will be happening, so prime spot for people watching and visiting the tourist museums.

In addition to the above mentioned areas:

Castleberry Hill (just SW of downtown Atlanta)
Decatur Square
Midtown
Candler Park
Cabbagetown
Glenwood Park
Grant Park
Oakhurst
Kirkwood

Some of the above are smaller neighborhood nodes, while Midtown is a large urban walkable area, just depends on what you're looking for. In general though the Eastside Beltline connects a lot of the most walkable parts of Atlanta.

My favorite(and many others)is the Beltline area. There are so many restaurants and small shops. You have Ponce and Krog market, Inman park, Piedmont park, and Little 5 points is close by. Decatur is also pretty cool. Downtown is also very walkable. Marietta is also cool. The Battery is good too.

Loads of street parking all along the Beltline. Just pick an access point on https://beltline.org/map/ here and park near it.

We always park right near Auburn Avenue and Randolph Street. It's right down the street from MLK's home.
We also like LottaFrutta which is right there and has great food and fruit smoothies. There is also a parking lot parking at Piedmont Park at Park Tavern. I think it costs 10 bucks to park all day.
