The state capital and most populous city in Georgia, Atlanta has grown into a modern metropolis over the last two decades.
World-class restaurants, a bustling downtown and cultural attractions like the National Center for Civil and Human Rights and Zoo Atlanta make it a popular destination for history buffs, foodies and families alike. Atlanta is less than a six-hour drive from Memphis.
Since the 1996 Summer Olympics were held, Atlanta, Georgia has enjoyed an international spotlight. And over the last 25-plus years, the city has expanded and redeveloped its urban core with new infrastructure and exciting attractions, including the new Beltline, a 22-mile multi-use trail and light rail system that connects neighborhoods, expands green spaces and displays public art. Atlanta’s cultural scene has also flourished in recent years.
