Atlanta is a major hub, a major commercial centre and the major gateway to the South. But the city is much more than a jumping-off point and the home of Coca-Cola.
Elegant antebellum architecture co-exists with a forest of glass and steel. Yet there is plenty of real greenery too – magnolias, dogwoods, Southern pines and oaks abound.Flights to Atlanta will take you to a city that rarely makes the lists of the USA’s culinary and creative centres. Unfairly so – it has an exploding arts scene, while its Bohemian neighbourhoods host a mélange of restaurants alongside the traditional southern specialists.
