Atlanta, Georgia, is the city that grew out of the fires of war to become the Empire Cityof the South. From its humble beginnings as a railroad terminus, through its development as a major manufacturing center, to its role today as an international traffic hub, Atlanta is ever expanding and always reinventing itself.
Home to the busiest airport in the world, and one of the most visited cities in the country, Atlanta owes its existence to the railroad industry. It was founded on what was once the territory of the Creek and Cherokee nations to serve as a hub for the major railroads of the 19th century, becoming known as the gateway to the South. Most of the city’s buildings and assets were destroyed by fire during Sherman’s March to the Sea campaign in 1864, but Atlanta would grow from devastation to become a manufacturing center, the Southern headquarters of global businesses and filmmaking, and the birthplace of the Civil Rights movement.
Post-war Atlanta saw immense growth, and the introduction of streetcars and freeways provided opportunities for Atlanta neighborhoods to spread into surrounding areas. The city remained a major transportation hub,and progress would see the advent of many international companies taking root in Atlanta.
A modern metroplex with a progressive vibe, Atlanta still retains the charm and hospitality of a Southern city proud of its heritage
The spirit of Atlanta survived the flames, and the revitalization of its declining downtown neighborhoods has drawn tourists and new residents from all over the world. Several home museums and historic sites mark areas of importance and celebrate the lives of those who put Atlanta on the map.
"Atlanta? I think it's the greatest city anywhere I know of."
- Ivan Allen, Jr.
With no natural boundaries to control development, Atlanta seems more like a region than a city, but one that is undeniably lush and charismatic. Its rolling hills and dense tree coverage makes it one most highly forested cities in the country. Accented with almost 100,000 shade trees made up magnificent oaks, dogwoods, magnolias, and Southern pines, the nation's ninth largest metropolis is a haven for over 300 parks, nature preserves, gardens, and green spaces.
Variety is what makes Atlanta's cultural impact special, with no shortage of options available in this city that loves to entertain. From big-ticket attractions to high-end shopping and every king of entertainment, restaurant and gathering spot in between, Atlanta's social scene is a busy and colorful as the city itself.
This small but vibrant city is packed with attractions ranging from museums to breweries to art galleries, and much more. Here are a few of the best spots in the city:
