Known as the capital of the New South, Atlanta has been Georgia’s state capital since 1877. The city is steeped in the history of the Civil War and the civil rights movement. Yet Atlanta is also a vibrant, sophisticated, forward-looking city, a major airline hub, a sports centre and a focal point for US corporate headquarters.
Atlanta's most desirable neighbourhood is Midtown – five minutes from Downtown and 10 minutes from Buckhead. With its own business district, the neighbourhood features a charming blend of historical residential architecture, high-fashion boutiques and one-of-a-kind restaurants. Here visitors will also find the city’s most prominent cultural institutions, including the High Museum of Art, the Alliance Theatre and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.
Situated near Georgia Tech, luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Atlanta also offers convenient access to the university’s cultural and athletic events. Atlanta's expansive green spaces include the scenic Piedmont Park – the crown jewel of Atlanta’s parks, reminiscent of New York’s Central Park – and the famed Botanical Garden. Georgia’s legendary sunshine creates a lush landscape of flowers and shade trees.
