All About Atlanta's Neighborhoods
The Capital of the New South
Atlanta, the namesake of either the daughter of a former Governor or an abbreviation of Atlantica-Pacifica railroad, is the undisputed capital of the South. Established as a railroad terminal between the port of Savannah and the Midwest, we continue to operate as a transportation powerhouse with the world’s busiest airport, one of the country’s largest subways, a massive highway system, and a lot of automobiles. A lot … we drive over 45.9 million miles a day (that’s to the moon and back 96 times… every day)!
We’re home to “America’s” Baseball Team, the 1996 Olympic Games, Coca-Cola, Home Depot, Delta Airlines, UPS, TBS, and 10 additional Fortune 500 companies’ headquarters. Students at top-notch colleges and universities including Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Emory, Agnes Scott, Morehouse, Spellman, and Oglethorpe enjoy the education and experiences that only city living offer.
Atlanta is home to some of the most respected people and institutions in the Arts Community. The High Museum, The Center for Puppetry Arts, The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, The Carlos Museum, and countless live-performance community theaters and public arenas ensure our citizens are never far from experiencing the arts. For those who enjoy the scenic outdoors there’s Piedmont Park, Grant Park, Centennial Olympic Park, and the Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
Atlanta’s beauty is seen throughout its neighborhoods, along its streets, and in its skyline. But the beauty is experienced through its people. We burst with genuine southern charm, warmth and hospitality, a desire to help others, and a commitment to the community. Truly we are “a city too busy to hate.”Ansley Park
