Atlanta, Georgia

Georgia's capital, the city of Atlanta, was established in 1837, at the intersection of two railroad lines. Since those days, it's played an important part in the Civil Rights Movement and seen impressive economic growth.

Atlanta Tours

Atlanta ToursAtlanta captures both Southern history and modern day buzz, packed with culture and heritage that's juxtaposed with nightlife and entertainment.

At the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site, you'll find the preserved childhood home of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr - an essential visit for those interested in the Civil Rights Movement and Atlanta's role in it. 

Away from the history, those who like their drinks fizzy and sugary can visit a museum dedicated to Coca Cola; and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens provide tranquil green space to enjoy.
