Atlanta is a southern hot spot for music venues, theaters, shops, art galleries, museums, clubs, parks, and hundreds of restaurants. It is also home to the headquarters of dozens of Fortune 1,000 and more than 10 Fortune 500 companies.
You can enjoy outdoor activities year-round with Atlanta’s warm climate and beautiful green space. When you want a break from the city, you can find mountains, lakes, campsites, and hiking trails within an hour's drive — and convenient access to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport makes the whole world just a flight away.
