Tiny Door ATL in Atlanta, Georgia.

I relocated to Atlanta, Georgia recently and it took me a while to adapt and sink into Atlanta's weather and surroundings.

I got to interact with fellow hikers on a trail the other day. Once they learned that I was new to Atlanta they started pouring in some suggestions about must visit places in Atlanta. I shortlisted few of the places and went on to visit, soon do I realize that these are the hyped go to places with long queues, overpriced entry, and parking fee. Although I liked visiting these popular and trendy places, I would love to explore not so popular yet interesting places.

After some research, I came across the Tiny Door ATL project. Now you might wonder, What is a tiny door project??

This colorful picture is one of the Tiny Door ATL located at the Atlanta's famous Beltline called "POP UP door"

It is an Atlanta based art project started in 2014 by two artists named Karen Anderson and Sarah Meng. They go around the city installing 6 inch artistically crafted and curated tiny doors. They have installed more than 12 doors so far and each door is uniquely arranged and decorated to fit its surroundings.

These are so little that you often walk past tiny whiny doors for days or even months and never see them. I went treasure hunting on Belt Line and it took me few walks to spot them and once I was on spot glancing these miniatures I realized these are designed flawlessly to fit the wall and the surroundings.

And then your curious self-starts throwing some questions like what is behind these doors? do you see a garden once you open the door just like it did in Alice in Wonderland? Well, it is left to your wild and creative imagination because you cannot open these doors.

One of the best thing about this creative project is, There is no headache of standing in the queue and buying overly priced entry ticket because Tiny Door ATL provides free access to all. So, Explore as many as you can. Go with your Friends/Kids/Girl Friend/Boy Friend be it anybody and trust me they will love it.
