Overview

Atlanta is where the Old South meets the New South. Antebellum mansions may be few and far between but there are plenty of historical buildings standing just streets away from post-modern skyscrapers. One of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., it has several claims to fame: the world's busiest airport (Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, therefore no shortage of cheap flights to Atlanta), the world's largest aquarium (Georgia Aquarium), the world’s largest open air, roadside fruit and vegetable stand, the oldest professional dance company in America (Atlanta Ballet), the CNN Center and ... the World of Coca-Cola. 

The city retains Southern charm. Many establishments serve a traditional Southern breakfast of biscuits with gravy, eggs, grits, and meat while there are plenty of restaurants serving cuisines from around the world. 

A place such as the Road to Tara Museum, where Margaret Mitchell handed over the manuscript of Gone With The Wind to her publisher, draws many visitors each year as does the Sweet Auburn District which reflects the history and achievements of Atlanta's African Americans.

Atlanta climate

Atlanta experiences hot, humid summers and mild, sometimes chilly winters. Summer highs reach 32 degrees Celsius (89 degrees Fahrenheit) and above. Winter lows, 11 degrees Celsius (52 degrees F). Rainfall is evenly distributed throughout the year, and there is some snowfall in the winter months.

Getting around Atlanta

Hop on Atlanta’s subway, which is run by Metropolitan Area Rapid Transit Authority, and you’ll be downtown in 15 minutes. The transit authority also runs the buses. Atlanta has notoriously bad traffic, some of the worst in the world, so you’ll want to avoid driving if you can. A nice way to avoid traffic is biking the 24km loop in Piedmont Park, or head a few kilometres northeast of Atlanta’s downtown to hike through Fernbank Forest.
