Traditional Southern culture meets one of the nation’s most cosmopolitan cities in Atlanta, Georgia. Known as the "Capital of the New South,” Atlanta is a thriving metropolis and a great place to visit. Fueled by the investment of globally-headquartered “local” corporations like Coca Cola it’s home to “the most trusted name in news,” CNN, host to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games and welcoming to the migration of the young creative class who have flocked to the city. Atlanta boasts of world-class restaurants, a myriad of cultural attractions like the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Botanical Garden, hip nightlife, sports teams - Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks, and Atlanta Falcons - and the busiest airport in the world - Hartfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport! Atlanta maintains its historic character as evidenced by the Atlanta History Center, the Martin Luther King Jr. Historical Site, Gone with the Wind author Margaret Mitchell’s former home, the Jimmy Carter Library and Museum and its newest site, the National Center for Human & Civil Rights. Atlanta enjoys a mild climate making it the ideal year-round tourist destination.
