Atlanta was once the railroad hub of the Southeast and is now home to the world’s busiest airport. It has always been a go-getter town, but in the last decade, the business-forward metropolis has been cultivating its creative side, leading to inspired cuisine, splashy street art, a thriving music and film scene, and the revitalization of some of its most beautifully worn structures. Set in a hilly forest, Atlanta is host to an ever-expanding population of transplants from anywhere and everywhere who keep the capital of the South diverse and welcoming. Stroll its tree-lined neighborhoods, settle into a porch swing, or bike the Beltline. You’ll come for the Southern charm and stay for the food halls.
