British Airways has regular flights to Atlanta, landing at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, ten miles south of Downtown Atlanta. Your flight into Atlanta will put you in the centre of the world's busiest airport - 86 million passengers fly into Atlanta every year. After your flight, travel north via train or car towards Atlanta to be warmed by Southern hospitality and dazzled by a gleaming cityscape.
After your flight to Atlanta, the fast, reliable MARTA Rail Line will speed you to Downtown Atlanta's Five Points or Peachtree Center stations in about 20 minutes. You can also take a 30-minute taxi ride into Atlanta from the Main Terminal; just follow the signs for Ground Transportation after your flight. Atlantans typically hire a car. You can follow suit post flight in Atlanta Airport's Main Terminal.
After your flights to Atlanta, dig into sprawling, friendly Atlanta, famous for its Civil War and civil rights history. A great place to start after your Atlanta flight is at Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Change, which combines the civil rights leader's birthplace, a church and museum. Admire the impressive CNN Tower and stretch your legs around Atlanta Botanical Garden after your flight. If you're hungry after all that Atlanta action, then dine on Southern favourites like fried chicken and grits (a kind of savoury maize porridge), or cool off with a chilled glass of Atlantan sweet tea. On your homeward flight from Atlanta, fill your bags with peach jam, locally grown peanuts and home decor items from Atlanta's Buckhead neighbourhood.
