Downtown Atlanta and the surrounding area has a wealth of hotels, for any taste.
Atlanta is a thriving city with teeming business and industry. The city is busy and the highways can be crowded, but there is still an air of the old fashioned southern charm.
The Georgia city got it’s start in 1837, as a major railway and manufacturing center. During the Civil War it became a major Confederate arsenal. In 1864 Atlanta was burned down, but rebuilt to become a major center of commerce.
Although the center of the city, with tall skyscrapers, is all city, there are still vestiges of the old south in surrounding areas. Very few buildings in Atlanta survived the Civil War.
Business and leisure travelers can find plenty to do in this burgeoning city. The CNN Center is the worldwide headquarters for the Cable News Network. The Centennial Olympic Park is a 21 acre landscaped green space which serves as a refreshing focal point in downtown Atlanta. The park is graced with fountains, sculptures and walkways. The Georgia Aquarium is believed to be the largest aquarium in the world. The aquarium houses more than 100,000 fish and other animals in over 100,000 gallons of water. There are many other attractions, including: Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta History Center, The Breman Jewish Heritage Museum, Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, Center for Puppetry Arts, Clark Atlanta University Art Gallery, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, Georgi Dome, Atlanta Zoo, Jimmy Carter Presidential Library, Margaret Mitchell (Gone with the Wind) House and Museum, Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site, World of Coca Cola and much more.
