My 5 Favorite things about Cabbagetown

Cabbagetown is a small funky neighborhood located on the east side of town. It was built as a mill town around the Fulton Bag and Cotton Mill which opened in 1881. You will find lots of shotgun houses and small cottages and new construction infill in the neighborhood. This is a close-knit community with a rich history stemming from the Appalachian Mountain folk who worked in the Cotton Mill. My favorite things about Cabbagetown: Chomp and Stomp – Cabbagetown’s annual bluegrass festival and chili cookoff takes place early in November every year. The festival kicks off with a 5k race called the Romp and Stomp. The neighbors really turn out to show their support lining the streets with coffee (and often beers) in hand to cheer on the runners and welcome them to the neighborhood. Some folks even show up with their guitars. This is one of my favorite 5ks of the year and my absolute favorite t-shirt. Krog Street Tunnel – The Krog Street Tunnel connects Cabbagetown to neighboring Inman Park. It is also canvas to the best street art (or graffiti if you aren’t a fan) in the city. Check it out here: http://thedailykrog.tumblr.com/ Carrol Street – Carrol Street Cafe, Village Pizza, Milltown Arms Tavern and Little’s Food Store. I can’t think of a negative thing to say about any of these places. Go there now. Eat good food. Meet cool people. Cabbagetown Park – Smack dab in the middle of the neighborhood is this lovely 3.5 acre greenspace with an awesome playground, plenty of seating, cool sculptures and a gorgeous oak tree…wooden swing and all.
