How to Build a Community in Atlanta

When relocating to a new city, finding a community is one of the most important aspects of a move. Discovering new groups, meeting friends and uncovering your niche is key to a successful move. Atlanta is home to thousands of communities and hobby-based groups that meet regularly. Whether on the lookout to practice your favorite hobby, network with industry professionals or get to know your neighbors, Meetup is a fantastic resource to build a community in your new home.

The Brunch Bunch

If Sundays featuring mimosas and connecting with like-minded women is your thing, Gals That Brunch is the perfect group for you. The Atlanta-based Meetup launched in 2017 and empowers women through brunch biweekly with delicious food and lively conversations. The group is for single, married and professional women in their 20s and 30s.

Sneakers and Suds

Two popular Atlanta communities come together in a smashing success at Running for Brews Buckhead. Home to the Peachtree Road Race and several nationally recognized breweries, Atlanta is the perfect place for those who enjoy running and drinking craft beer. A social running club, Running for Brews Buckhead meets every Monday at 7 p.m. at popular hangout The Elbow Room in Atlanta. After running a 5k through scenic Buckhead, all participants stick around to share a pint paired with even better conversations!

Worldly and Wise

While meeting new people is always an exciting venture, it’s good to have people of a similar age in your community. The 35UP!
