Atlanta Senior Instagrammable Places

Can you imagine what life would be like without photography? Social media has really helped evolve this art form. If you’re looking to take great photos and commemorate your senior year, then you need to check out these Instagrammable places in Atlanta. Little Five Points is one of Atlanta’s hippest neighborhoods. Shoppers head to Moreland Avenue’s indie stores for offbeat vintage clothing, vinyl and cool gifts, while young locals hang out at the dive bars, burger joints, and Ethiopian and vegan eateries that line the surrounding streets.

It has been described as Atlanta’s version of Haight-Ashbury, a melting pot of sub-cultures, and the Bohemian center of the Southern United States.

Little Five Points is one of Atlanta’s best neighborhoods for viewing street art. Unlike most of Atlanta’s neighborhoods, the street art in Little Five Points is highly concentrated in a compact easily walked area.

When I talk to seniors, I let them pick the place. This way the location is something that means something to them. Zahara wants to work in the film industry. She is looking at colleges around the country that will help her achieve her dream.

If you are aware of your kids interests as we are with our daughter, who is in her senior year of college, then you know how much they love this area of Atlanta.

The Krog Street Tunnel, located under the CSX railyard, is a tunnel in Atlanta known for its street art. The tunnel links the Cabbagetown, Reynoldstown, and Inman Park neighborhoods. It is the premiere dank graffiti pit in Atlanta. When the tunnel isn’t full of idling cars in rush-hour traffic, it’s a photo shoot destination, a hip-hop music video staple, and the latest extension of Atlanta’s Beltline project.
