Moving cities or relocating to a new state is an enormous undertaking. While discovering a new city can be fun, finding new friends that share common interests can prove challenging. Luckily, Atlanta is home to endless communities, niche groups and hobby-based circles that meet regularly. Whether interested in finding casual friends or networking with industry professionals, Meetup is a fantastic resource to take advantage of when building a community in a new city.

Sneakers and Suds
Home to the Peachtree Road Race and a growing number of nationally recognized breweries, the city of Atlanta is a niche paradise for individuals who love running as much as craft beer! A social running club, Running for Brews Buckhead is a unique Atlanta community that gathers every Monday at 7 p.m. at The Elbow Room in Atlanta. After running a 5k through the scenic Buckhead area, runners join for a pint (or two!) and catch up on the week’s events, personal triumphs and more. Running for Brews Buckhead is open to all runners, regardless of skill level!
