The capital of the South

Luxury mega-malls, the World of Coca-Cola, and world-class museums are just some of what make Atlanta an attractive travel destination for so many Americans and foreign visitors. Atlanta also offers lesser-known attractions that define the soul of the city, like Victorian buildings and historical landmarks, a rich assortment of skyscrapers, gorgeous parks, and year-round festivals. Atlanta will keep you busy for days, but even those who spend just a few hours here will never forget the pearl of Georgia.
