The Big Peach. Hollywood of the South. City in a Forest. The ATL­. Atlanta bears many monikers, reflective of its diverse nature; the capital of Georgia is quite possibly the most surprising city in the South. Come for the history and delve into the Civil Rights Movement in Martin Luther King Jr’s home town, but stay for the culture that propels a modern Atlanta into the 21st century through hip hop, art, soul food, museums, and much more. Like the phoenix that rose from the ashes, the city has been rebuilt following the Great Fire that nearly destroyed it, so book your flights to Atlanta and experience the best of the South.
