Atlanta once evoked images of Scarlett O’Hara bravely defending Tara from marauding Yankees. Her valiant efforts paid off, with its bustling and cosmopolitan energy representing the ‘New South’.
Trend-setting restaurants, skyscrapers and ultra-modern sports facilities blend seamlessly with traditional architecture and eateries. Whatever you eat don’t forget to wash it down with a Coca- Cola (‘co-cola’), the house wine of the South and headquartered here.
Atlanta has the world’s largest diorama (Cyclorama), the tallest escalator in the South and is physically one of the largest cities in the world.
The geography of this sprawling metropolis of over 136 square miles represents a challenge for seeing all the sites, the best bet is to use the local transport system (MARTA) to get around.
Don’t expect a steady diet of traditional black-eyed peas and grits; Atlanta’s restaurants accommodate almost every taste and pocket. But do try the barbecue.
