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.

Get the zucchini pecan bread with basil cream cheese, and take it outside right to edge of the river. Enjoy the amazing scenery as you dine on classic Southern favorites like chicken biscuits and fried green tomatoes. A great place to bring your beloved or your favorite aunt.
