Get to Know Atlanta
Prep for Your Atlanta Visit
Torched at the end of the Civil War, Atlanta rose phoenix-like from its ashes into the beating heart of the modern South. If your notion of the city comes from Gone with the Wind, you're in for a big surprise. Fabled Peachtree Street doesn't actually have any peach trees lining it. And most people don't speak with a Southern drawl, because they're from somewhere else. Check in to today's Atlanta to explore endless bustling avenues and ample green spaces, and be ready to revel in the Southern hospitality, which does exist, even in a city of transplants.
