Long known as the historic "Sweet Auburn" neighborhood associated with the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and the civil rights movement - the MLK Center, his boyhood home and Ebenezer Baptist Church where he preached are all within walking distance - the Sweet Auburn neighborhood has recently become a bustling nightlife district along [/content-478019-things-to-do-on-edgewood-ave-sweet|Edgewood Avenue].

Take a trip through history at the APEX Museum, presenting North American and world history through an African-American perspective. Shop for a snack at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, or catch a local or touring band at the Music Room, a venue that is both literally and figuratively underground.
