A Guide to Atlanta, Georgia

Whether you’re traveling for business, heading to check out Atlanta’s myriad of sports teams, or want to explore the culture, music, shopping, and food, it all starts with the hotels in Atlanta. From luxury, five-star establishments to cozy inns, Atlanta has it all.

An Ode to the Railroad

Though the area around Atlanta was home to tribes of the Creek and Cherokee nations for years, it didn’t see its first European settlers until 1822.  The city’s origin, however, was not founded in the settling of its lands but by the building of a railroad.  In 1836, the Western and Atlantic Railroad began development to run between Savannah and the Midwest. After its completion, the settlement of Terminus, or later Thrasherville and then Marthasville, sprung up around its zero milepost.  The chief engineer of the railroad suggested renaming the town once more to Atlantica-Pacifica, and in 1847 it was incorporated under the shortened version of Atlanta.

Due to its location on the railroad line, the town was immersed in the battles of the Civil War ending with it being burnt to the ground by General Sherman in 1864.  Quickly rebuilt the year after and due once again to its nearby tracks, it inherited the status of state’s capital from Milledgeville and began a steady climb in population, popularity, and importance.  It premiered Gone With The Wind, written by local Margaret Mitchell, in 1939 and played a major part in World War II due to its manufacturing companies and, yet again, railroad system.  It became a hot spot for the Civil Right’s Movement as home to Martin Luther King Jr., and it hosted the 1996 Summer Olympic Games.  With a reservation at the hotels in Atlanta, you can witness the result of this prestigious and rich history by exploring the city it created from the comfort of your accommodations.

A Plentiful Present

The present is a gift you can give yourself with a room or suite at the hotels in Atlanta.  Though its beginnings were humble, this city quickly became one of the major metropolitan areas in the United States, and you are going to get the chance to see just how many ways it honors that badge.  If culture and arts interest you even a little bit, A-Town is the place for you.  It boasts almost 40 different museums, that range across the spectrum of content, including the APEX Museum, the Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum, the Delta Flight Museum, the Millennium Gate, and the World of Coca-Cola.  It’s also a rarity in the country as it has permanent, professional companies in all major disciplines; opera, ballet, music, and theater.

Speaking of music, those same hotels in Atlanta that will get you access to great theatrical performances, museums, and street art will also introduce you to some seriously excellent music history.  The Sex Pistols first U.S. show was in Atlanta, Free Bird was recorded in the Fox Theatre and it remains a foundational hub for country music.  And that music scene is still rolling with great local live music in sites all over the city.  For your more standard fare of attractions, you can check out the Georgia Aquarium, the world’s largest indoor aquarium, the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Zoo Atlanta, one of only four zoos in the country with a giant panda, and a tour of the city’s lush urban forest on the Kendeda Canopy Walk.

Don’t forget the sports.  The Braves, the Hawks, and the Falcons call Atlanta home and you see them play at the Georgia Dome, Turner Field, or the Philips Arena.  Add in the unforgettable dining at local restaurants, the unbelievable nightlife at a plethora of clubs, and shopping that will turn your wallet or purse inside out, and you may never have time take full advantage of the comfort of your choice of the hotels in Atlanta.

A Bit of Necessary Information

Now that you know a bit about the history of the city and a small sampling of the things you will get to do and see within minutes of the hotels in Atlanta, it’s time to collect some important facts for fleshing out your trip.  The city has four full seasons with a good amount of precipitation in every one.  Expect it to earn the hot in its nickname in the summer with high humidity, but don’t be surprised to feel it cool right down during the winter months as well.

Getting to Atlanta is a breeze whether by plane into the world’s busiest airport, the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International, or by car on any one of the major inbound highways, I-20, I-75, or I-85.  Once you’re checked in and ready to see the sights, the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority offers up buses and heavy rail with pick ups and drop offs near every major hub and location.  And to end this necessary blurb of important, but slightly mundane, information, here’s another city fact that is very attractive:  Atlanta has the highest tree coverage in the entire country at 36 percent, gaining it the nickname “city in a forest” and giving you cleaner air and more alluring backdrops.
