ATL - Atlanta

Bogotá

Atlanta, the southern phoenix, is a global city

If first impressions are the ones that last, then the first impression we have of Atlanta is that it’s a city that’s home to the world. All you have to do is step on the Hartsfield Jackson International Airport to see people from all over and to experience the city’s truly cosmopolitan nature.
Due to its location, the airport receives most of the United States’ cabotage flights. Approximately 95 million people went through Atlanta’s airport in 2012, which makes it the busiest terminal in the world.
The city is only a 16 kilometer (9.94 mile) drive from the airport; upon arrival, the visitor will be impressed by its amazing architecture. The large number of skyscrapers sets the tone and feel, and “modern” is the first word that comes to mind. It’s a great time to find out what the city known as “the capital of the Southern United States” has to offer. Shall we go?

There are countless programs for the millions of tourists who come to Atlanta every year. From historic tours to places that inspire technology. Here are a few of them:
Centennial Olympic Park
Having hosted the Olympic Games, the park is one of the most famous in the city. The fountain of the rings, symbol of the Olympic games, is set in a large complex that hosts free concerts.
Georgia Aquarium
How about seeing whales, otters, turtles and sharks up close?
 Relax… Atlanta isn’t a coastal city, but it has one off the best aquariums in the world. It features over 500 animal species waiting for your visit. 
Martin Luther King Jr.
One of the greatest icons in the struggle for peace was born in Atlanta.
 Martin Luther King’s memory is recorded in a museum dedicated to the pacifist leader. The house where he lived, the church where he was a minister and his tomb are part of the facility. It’s worth checking out.
Underground Atlanta
Underground, there is a whole other city.
 A part of 1860’s Atlanta still exists below the hustle and bustle of the cars downtown. There are stores, bars, restaurants and even music in the place today, which seems more like a giant subway station.


 

 

 

 

Since Atlanta isn’t a sprawling city, it’s easy to get around. Choose to stay in Downtown, Midtown or Buckhead to take advantage of the best sightseeing and restaurants.
