Encountering vibrant murals throughout intown neighborhoods has been a happy surprise in recent years. But to really understand the magnitude of the Living Walls project that pairs local and international artists with brick and concrete canvases, set out on a quest to find as many 
as you can. Use the organization’s online map to craft a cycling, urban-hiking, or driving tour through neighborhoods like Reynolds­town and East Atlanta Village or East Point and Castleberry Hill. Can you spot Cabbagetown’s lofty fox? Or the four-story fire extinguisher Downtown? With several murals along the Atlanta BeltLine, your hunt can combine two of the city’s best new features.
