America’s Southern belle
Both culturally and historically, Atlanta is one of the most important cities in the United States. The capital of Georgia has something for everyone, from world-class museums to a thriving music scene. And still, the best thing going for the city is the genuine Southern hospitality that’s more than just a cliché.
