Atlanta is the frontier of the New South, while still holding onto the traditional values and heart-warming aspects of the old. The city is the capital of the state of Georgia and features three striking skylines of the Downtown, Midtown and Buckshead districts and is home to the world’s busiest airport. The Downtown area is the most central and commercial area in Georgia and is home to the highest concentration of exhibitions, all found round the Centennial Park Area within walking distance of each other. The three most popular attractions are The World of Coca Cola; a museum retelling the history of the world’s most iconic brand, The Georgia Aquarium; the largest in the world by volume and boasting an opportunity to swim with the world’s largest shark, the Whale Shark and finally the CNN Centre and Studio Tour; a chance to get up close and take a look behind the scenes of the Nation’s leading news source. Also waiting to be discovered in Atlanta is the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, home to his birthplace, his final resting place, the church where he delivered a lot of his sermons and a museum and memorial dedicated to his colossal achievement. There are several gorgeous parks to spend the day in and plenty of museums for the cultural travellers while shoppers will delight in knowing Atlanta is one of the top ten retail markets in the USA and is a great place to find antiques, art galleries, arts and crafts stores, thrift stores and boutiques.
