ATLANTA INFORMATION

In the undulating hills of north Georgia, between the mountains and the sea you'll find Atlanta, another American success story born out of the railroad expansion in the 1800s. It's a vast and thriving city, the economic and cultural hub of the southern United States. Home to a certain elixir that goes by the name of Coca-Cola and to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., more recently, Atlanta played host to the '96 Olympic Games. True it is a bit of a sprawl with lots of shopping malls but visit the quirkier districts and old towns when they're filled with pear blossom and color in spring and autumn and you'll love it. Five Points and Buckhead are the liveliest areas at night with lots of bars, restaurants and clubs. For culture head to Sweet Auburn.
