    In Atlanta, fine dining, shopping and rich history combine with inspiration-inducing attractions to create a city with Southern charm and world-class sophistication. It’s easy to see why Atlanta, Georgia is one of the most popular destinations in the Southeast to visit.

    Fueled by the prosperity of local mega companies like Coca Cola and Holiday Inn, and the prestige of hosting the 1996 Summer Olympic Games - Atlanta is on fire. And this time it's a good thing. From world-class restaurants and a myriad of cultural attractions to a hip nightlife and sporting events galore, the city is cosmopolitan in every sense of the word.

    There are endless shopping options in Atlanta from shopping malls, boutiques, upscale fashion areas and outlet shopping centers. It takes more than a day to cover Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza malls in fashionable Buckhead.

    Historic districts tell of Atlanta’s past with antebellum homes and turn of the century market squares. Stop by the Atlanta History Center or visit the Martin Luther King Jr. Historical Site, a moving tribute to an American icon. Browse through the former home of famous author Margaret Mitchell or pop into the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum.

    Atlanta is home to more than 70 streets that include the name "Peachtree," but the most well-known is the original Peachtree Street. This main thoroughfare travels through most of the neighborhoods of Atlanta.

    Buckhead, the most affluant area of Atlanta s full of everything from sweeping Southern mansions and high-end shopping to progressive restaurants and hopping nightlife.

    The hippest area of town is undoubtedly Atlanta’s Eastside. It has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years, and Atlanta’s young and vibrant population has flocked to the area’s hot spots.

    Midtown has long been known as the heart of the arts. It’s home to both the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, as well as many other cultural institutions, but Midtown Atlanta is also home to Piedmont Park, one of the largest green spaces in the city.

    Atlanta’s trendy Westside sprung up almost overnight and swiftly became one of the most happening areas of the city. Also known as the Design District, the Westside is home to more home goods and interior design shops than we can count.
