The one true capital of the South, Atlanta sits at the epicenter of an electrifying energy that is transforming the region. On the one hand, it is a metropolis writ large, with arts, culture and a spirit that is second to none. Ask anyone this side of the Mason Dixon how to get to “The City” and they’ll point you here. On the other, it still carries that timeless Southern authenticity and hospitality that sets the South apart. Carrying the best of the past into a dazzling future it is creating for itself, Atlanta is the standard bearer for the new South, with so much to explore.
