Atlanta, Georgia

Georgia AquariumFrom city lights to southern charm, Atlanta is the unofficial capital of the New South. Awash in history, and brimming with activities, Atlanta offers more to see and do than most any city in America. Take in the taste factory at New World of Coca-Cola, or enjoy the fun of the world-famous Georgia Aquarium or Six Flags Over Georgia. Ready to shop and dine? Head to trendy Buckhead or Little Five Points. American history abounds at sites such as the Martin Luther King, Jr. Historic Site, Stone Mountain Park and the Atlanta History Center. Or take in major-league sports like the Atlanta Falcons, Hawks or the Braves. And just about any time of year, Atlantans find a reason to celebrate with great festivals and events.
