Bundle Up and Enjoy a Trip to ATL this January!

Average temperature low and high: 33°-53°
Atlanta's winters are generally mild to cool, with average highs in the 50s. Despite possible cold weather, January can also bring beautiful, sunny days. Hotel and airfare prices tend to drop this time of year, making it a great month to plan a trip. Some annual events may be canceled, postponed, or different due to COVID-19; we will update this page with any new released info from organizers in the coming weeks.
