There's nothing more romantic than taking a nice stroll underneath the moonlight. It's only when you add the city skyline that the romance is taken to the next level. Atlanta is known for its beautiful and breathtaking views, such as the Beltline, Atlantic Station, and Skyline Park at Ponce City Market. These areas combine outdoor lighting, ambiance, and atmosphere to produce an elegant and enjoyable evening with your significant other. Here are some of the most popular and breathtaking locations in Atlanta, perfect for a nighttime walk. 

Midtown Atlanta 

There are countless lighting displays that are entirely free in and around the metro Atlanta area. One of these popular choices happens to be directly in Midtown Atlanta. From the bright, neon green of the Fox Theatre to the vibrant brightness of Colony Square, there are a variety of beautiful lights that will take your breath away without having to pay a single penny. 

Marietta Square 

Another free option on our list, Marietta Square is a bit outside of the perimeter, but it makes up for this with a collection of beautiful lighting. Home to a variety of shops and restaurants, Marietta Square is decorated by the city with eye-popping lighting kits and effects. Take your significant other out for a nice dinner, and then stroll the square holding hands to take in the awe-inspiring and elegant lights. Afterward, the two of you can get some ice cream before making your way back home. Just make sure not to eat too fast and get an ice cream headache.

Centennial Olympic Park 

Located deep in the heart of Atlanta is Centennial Olympic Park. A 22 acre greenspace in the heart of the city, Centennial Olympic Park is surrounded by an assortment of activities to partake in. The World of Coca-Cola, the Georgia Aquarium, and the infamous Skyview Atlanta are all great options for a night out on the town. If that doesn't sell you on it, the area surrounding Centennial Olympic Park is only amplified when the sun sets, and the moon rises. Whether you want to partake in a leisurely stroll or relax with a picnic in the park, Centennial Olympic Park is the perfect place for anyone looking for some late-night entertainment. 

Atlantic Station 

One of the most well-known areas on our list, Atlantic Station is home to some of the best shops and restaurants within the entire metro Atlanta area. But while most citizens and residents go to Atlantic Station for the food and the shopping (maybe even a show or two afterward), some will go just for the outdoor lighting. Atlantic Station is known for its intricate and elegant lighting designs that create a striking and romantic ambiance and atmosphere, perfect for any young couple in love.
