When it comes to distance, it will take you roughly 11 minutes to get between the popular and highly sought-after areas. A big question for visitors and new residents is, what is the difference between Downtown and Midtown Atlanta? Midtown gives more of a neighborhood feel that may even make you think you are not even in the city. You will find tranquil areas to relax and entertain. That is, of course, until you complete the short drive to Howell Mill, filled with shops and restaurants. You may also continue into Downtown Atlanta since it is a short drive. Downtown gives you more things to do regarding historical places and tourist attractions for enjoyment and education. Both have large and small businesses, but the government buildings are located in Downtown Atlanta.  

To give more clarity and distinction on the areas, Midtown Atlanta is considered to cover 3.8 miles and include area codes 30308 and 30309. It is between Downtown Atlanta and Buckhead. Midtown is south of Piedmont Park and consists of the business district along Peachtree Street and the area east of Piedmont Avenue. Downtown Atlanta has the zip code 30303 and brings in the sporting arenas for major college games and some professional teams, Centennial Olympic Park, the College Football Hall of Fame, and the Atlanta Visitor Information Center. That is a good place to stop by to learn more about the city as you walk or drive around to find your favorite places. Downtown Atlanta and Midtown Atlanta attract many people yearly because of the major attractions, games, concerts, and events, so living and enjoying the city means safety comes first. You will quite often see police officers patrolling or on foot in Downtown Atlanta and Midtown Atlanta.
