The Atlanta Preservation Center’s seventh annual Phoenix Flies tours will run March 5 to March 20 this year.

Phoenix Flies, which APC describes as “city-wide celebration of Atlanta’s vibrant living landmarks,” features tours of historic landmark buildings and neighborhoods all over the city.

I’ve been meaning to take the “Unseen Underground” tour for years, and I’ll admit to not being sure where Castleberry Hill even is, so I probably ought to get to that one too.

Most appear to be walking tours, but there’s also an approximately three-hour, 10-mile bicycle tour of downtown historic districts on March 5. All the events are free, but some require reservations.

Have you taken any of the Phoenix Flies tours? What did you think?

    The Unseen Underground tour is really cool — I recommend it. I took it last year and really enjoyed getting schooled in some Atlanta history I wasn’t aware of. Though there is a depressing element since you see up close how so much history has been literally paved over and turned into parking decks. Still worth it.

      Thanks! I work in one of the buildings that’s sort of hovering over the Gulch and when I look down where MLK or Spring Street pass over it, or from inside the CNN parking deck I always wonder why we still have this monster hole there.
