25 Most Popular Instagram Spots in Atlanta

25 Most Popular Instagram Spots in Atlanta

As soon as we moved out west, all these bright, colorful murals have been popping up in our hometown. I remember when Krog Street Tunnel used to be the main landmark for graffiti, but now these colorful murals are all over the city. If you’re visiting, here are the most popular instagram spots in Atlanta.

We learned that much of it started from the Living Walls conference in August 2010. They have since evolved to year-long projects, and it’s not simply about making amazing urban art but also about highlighting a number of problems facing the city.

  1. This is the best list I’ve seen yet!

  2. Hi. As a person who lives in atlanta a lot of these are now different. They change yearly:)

    1. Hey, Faith! We’ll be updating this list in the near future, especially with Atlanta growing and changing at such a rapid rate! We notice a few of these spots changing every time we come back to Atlanta as well. :)

  3. I took my daughter and a bunch of friends around for her birthday yesterday. Thanks for all of the pointers! They have so many good photos now from our trip! Very worthwhile!!!! The Dr. Dax wall on Flat Shoals was AMAZING! The other walls in that same parking lot were very good too!

    We couldn’t find Dr. Dax’s Container Wall though… We saw three sides of the building. Which side is it on? The side facing the parking lot has a Spider Man mural (him in costume and then him as muscle and bone only…) The other side of the building facing the empty lot has a bunch of cartoony characters on it. Hoping it wasn’t painted over?

    Also couldn’t find the “Best of Atlanta” one… Is it close to the Paris on Ponce tiny door? We couldn’t find anyone who knew where it was to help direct us to it…

    1. Glad to hear the list helped! We’re going to double check that they are all still there and update the post in the next couple of weeks. Most of our markers/addresses should be right where the mural is, although sometimes you have to walk around the buildings. Plus, they do change from time to time. Thanks for pointing that out!

      1. The Best of Atlanta one is at the corner of Baker NW St & Marrietta St. It’s on the side of a pub/bar/business. Sorry didn’t get a name. My husband & I just left there. I hope this helps.

  4. Heading to ATL in 5 days and your post gave me a couple must-see places to check out. I’m especially looking forward to visiting the Krog Street Tunnel. Thanks for sharing :)

  5. As a native Atlanta, this warms my heart! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love this! I am planning to visit Atlanta next month, will definitely check out some of these spots.

    1. Thanks, Maninder. Hope you have a great trip next month!

  7. #5 TMNK has been painted over so sad

  8. #19 ATLANTA Wall is at the corner or Marietta and Baker St

      1. Yup! It’s on the Stats Sportsbar building.
