Lenox Square / Phipps Plaza can be reached via Marta rail line NE7. These are 2 excellent malls not too far away via rail.
Perimeter Mall - For those not staying in downtown there are several nice malls. This one is on Marta rail stop N9 on the perimeter (I-285) N of Atlanta.
Cumberland Mall - A nice mall on the perimeter (I-285) NW of Atlanta near Marietta. You will need your own transportation to easily get there.
Southlake Mall - South of the airport at I-75 exit 233. You will need your own transportation to easily get there.
Gwinnett Place Mall - A very nice huge mall on the NE side of Atlanta outside of the perimeter at I-85 exit 104. You will need your own transportation to easily get there.
Atlantic Station - The very new upscale area of downtown Atlanta where you can live, eat, shop, go to movies & work all in the same area by simply walking around once you get there. You can get to it via Marta rail stop N5, Arts Center. ESPN earlier this month, broadcast their “Final Four Basketball” shows from Atlantic Station. This area is the current “IN” area of Atlanta.
World of Coke - has temporarily closed while it relocates next to the Georgia Aquarium which is next to Centennial Olympic Park. It will not reopen until May.
Underground Atlanta - Some people have shopped here in the past. Unfortunately times seem to be changing there especially since the W O Coke, located very close by closed. For those that wish to still go to Underground, be aware that there is repair work being done on a bridge on Peachtree St. There is a fence erected around this area near the front of Underground. This gives the appearance that Underground is closed but it is not.
From the AJC newspaper: Most of downtown’s development action has followed the Georgia Aquarium to neighborhoods around Centennial Olympic Park. Underground suffers from a perception of being unsafe, in part because it and the area around it are gathering spots for young people who don’t have a lot to do. If people are not going to the World of Coca-Cola (now temp closed), we don’t send them to the Underground," said Janet Maycock, former chief concierge for the Westin Peachtree Atlanta who is now in convention services for the hotel. "We tell them, “If you are looking for shopping, Atlantic Station is the way to go.”
