Atlanta Highlights

Growing from names like “Terminus” during the 19th century to “the city too busy to hate” during the Civil Rights era, Atlanta has a history of overcoming challenges with the fervor of a phoenix, rising from the ashes of the South’s torrid past into a bustling metropolis nestled at the end of the Appalachian trail. The city of Coca-Cola, the Turner Broadcasting System, and a budding film industry, Atlanta is now considered the capital of the New South. Join us by way of the largest airport in the world, and we’ll treat you to some of the best farm-to-table restaurants in the country.
