Atlanta Tourism

Atlanta is the capital and the most populous city of the state of Georgia, in the United States, with approximately 600,000 inhabitants although its metropolitan area exceeds five million. It is primarily a business city and the world headquarters of Coca-Cola and Delta Air Lines, one of the largest in the country. Atlanta’s airport is the busiest in the world and I can say from my own experience that it is spectacular, with hundreds of shops, restaurants, resting places and even walls decorated with works of art by many artists.

The weather in Atlanta is usually cold, so unless you go in the middle of the summer it is better that you take warm clothes as outside that season the temperature is around 10º Celsius and it is quite likely that it will be cold, especially if you go between October and March. On a good day, you can visit Piedmont Park and enjoy the breathtaking views of the city’s Skyline, as well as spend a nice day picnicking or practicing any sport. Inside the park is the spectacular Atlanta Botanical Garden .

The best places to visit in Atlanta are Peachtree Street (the most commercial area in the style of Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles), the Centennial Olympic Park, the Coca-Cola Museum, the Georgia Aquarium or the Federal Reserve Bank. If you like shows, you can stop by the mythical Fox Theater or the Rialto Center, where they always have a play on the bill. There are also multiple places where you can listen to live music every night. Among the museums in Atlanta you can visit the Atlanta History Center, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site or the children’s museum Fernbank Science Center. In addition, there is a zoo in Grant Park , where you can see a nice exhibit of panda bears.
