Peidmont park, Green Tourtuga's box number 4

Decatur Cemetary, Buffy the Vampier Stamper, this is not a zoo, and other boxes

The Fox Box, at the historic Fox Theater

The Atlanta History Center, has many interesting boxs, and is a tourist spot in it's own right.

Blue Heron Nature Preserve just planted a few boxes (maybe store bought) and is an interesting park.

Dolls Head Trail is a weird little urban hike
With a few boxes (full disclosure, a couple are mine and just ok, the rest are awesome.)

Oakland Cemmetary, a couple boxes, a lovely historic cemmetary, great food near-by.

I would skip Irwin Street, those boxes seem to be missing.

If you find yourself down in Hapeville (its convenient to the airport ) you can be first finder on my Rainy-day-drinking boxs at Hapeville Corner Tavern. The boxes aren't anything extra special, but some folks like to be first.

A note on Stone Montain Park--- its 20$ a day or 40$ a year to drive in, but you can park for free in Stone Mountain Village (which has a dozen or so boxes) and take the bike PATH behind the welcome center (it's a red caboose visible from Main St) into the park. From there the Walk Up Trail, Cherokee, and Nature Trails are easy to reach. It also could easily fill a whole year worth of boxing, I have been boxing there alot since July, and still have another 100 plus boxes to go, not counting WOM, mysteries to hard for me, and boxes you need special skills or equipment (like a boat) to get. If you would like a local to hike with I'm free on Saturdays, and maybe some of the more experienced locals would join us.

Thank you thank you thank you!!

I’m so grateful for your kindness in taking the time to advise and guide me in and around the greater Atlanta area.

And for offering to hike with me.
Trying to figure out my divide and conquer plan... I printed out a bunch of clues yesterday and next is to sort and see how to figure out which areas what days... unsure of the plan at this point but a very sweet offer that is much appreciated. If I’m in the zone for a boxing buddy, I’ll let you know 😉

Happy Boxing

Also Panola and Arabia Mountaind are worth a check. Any other locals got ideas?

...Atlanta’s most famous greasy spoon.

Hah! I lived about 100 feet from that place in the fall of 1973, for about three months. Loved that place, ate a LOT of meals there!

When are you planning to come? Will you have a car? Do you like long hikes? Stone Mountain can be totally overwhelming, and although there are lots of boxes, you shouldn't expect to go there and get 50 boxes in one day. Even 20 is a push for someone without a guide. Other locations (Red Top Mountain, Don Carter state park, Yellow River, Arabia Mountain, Unicoi, Yargo) have more straight forward clues, scenic trails, and only cost $5.00.

Stone Mountain can definitely be overwhelming and the search results could stand to be cleaned up. Decatur Cemetery is great. Oakland Cemetery only has a few, but is amazing in it's own right. Where else would you find a cemetery with a gift shop? And the Doll Head Trail is quite interesting as well.
