Atlanta, GA

At every turn, rich Atlanta history is revealed through the people and events that grew this settlement into an international city with a population close to 5.5 million people. The roads you travel through Atlanta were worn from the Native Americans who first called this land home. The beautiful and serene greenspaces once were the battlefields of a nation torn apart in civil war. From the many railroad tracks crossing the area to the skyscrapers lining Peachtree Street to the world’s busiest airport, the story of two centuries of changing Atlanta, Georgia history unfolds.

Located at the foothills of the southern Appalachians, the landscape of Atlanta is predominantly characterized by rolling hills and broad, smooth uplands. The Chattahoochee River is one of the most prominent natural features of Atlanta. It forms the northwestern boundary of the city, flowing through a valley, which ranges from 150 to 400 feet in depth and from two to five miles in width from rim to rim. On the eastern side of the metro area, Stone Mountain rises high above the tallest pines. At 825 feet tall, it is the world’s largest free-standing piece of exposed granite.

Despite having a mild Atlanta climate, the city does experience all four seasons. The average annual temperature is 61 degrees. July is the hottest month, averaging 89 degrees and January is the coldest, with the average low at 33 degrees. With less than two inches of annual snowfall, it’s not easy to ski or sled, but you can enjoy more than 100 golf courses, 200 public tennis courts and hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails more than 300 days a year. The moderate Atlanta climate also allows us to take advantage of many outdoor festivals, concert venues and parks nearly year-round.

Atlanta’s neighborhoods create the landscape of this beautiful city. There’s legendary shopping in Buckhead at Phipps Plaza, Lenox Square, boutiques and galleries. Midtown is the heart of the arts with the High Museum, Alliance Theatre and Fox Theatre, plus the Atlanta BeltLine,dining and extensive nightlife. The convention and entertainment district is home to the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coca-Cola, The Center for Civil and Human Rights, Inside CNN Studio Tour, and Imagine It! The Children’s Museum of Atlanta.

Regardless of your favorite, Atlanta has a sports event for you, ranging from professional teams to college teams to NASCAR to the Peachtree Road Race, which has been the world’s largest 10K race since 1990. Atlanta has a number of professional teams including, The Atlanta Beat (Women’s Soccer), Atlanta Braves (MLB), Atlanta Dream (Women’s Basketball), Atlanta Falcons (Football), Atlanta Hawks (Men’s Basketball), Atlanta Silverbacks (Men’s Soccer), Georgia Force (Arena Football), Gwinnett Braves (AAA Baseball), and the Gwinnett Gladiators (Hockey).
