The capital city of the Southeast, Atlanta is a city of the future with strong ties to its past. A thriving business center and an eclectic mix of residents are back dropped by a city of decided southern charm.
Atlanta's diverse economy is dominated by logistics, professional and business services, media operations, and information technology. Topographically, the city is marked by rolling hills and dense tree coverage. Revitalization of Atlanta's neighborhoods, initially spurred by the 1996 Olympics, has intensified in the 21st century. Today, Decatur Square is one of the country's top pedestrian districts, hipsters flock to Little Five Points, and Buckhead is known as the Beverly Hills of the East.
Every year companies vote with their feet and choose Atlanta as the destination to expand their operations or build their headquarters. Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport - one of the nation's busiest in daily passenger flights - supports our fast-growing city as a global hub. Direct flights to Europe, South America, and Asia have made metro Atlanta easily accessible to the more than 1,000 international businesses that operate here.
"Hotlanta" has a little bit of everything, offering fun for families, business professionals, and everyone in between. From fine and performing arts at The Fox Theatre, the High Museum of Art, and Goat Farm Arts Center, to active sports on the Atlanta BeltLine and in Stone Mountain Park, to such family-friendly attractions as the World of Coca-Cola, Six Flags Over Georgia, and the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, Atlanta runs long on recreation. And a major city means major sports teams - Atlanta is home to the Falcons, Braves, and Hawks. As one of the South's largest cities, Atlanta balances urban scale with livable charm.
