Attractions and Homes for Sale in Atlanta

Boasting the world's largest airline hub and the country's ninth largest metropolitan area, Atlanta is rightfully known as the capital of the south. It is a bustling cosmopolitan city that draws talent from across the globe for its world-class commercial and creative opportunities. With tax breaks for the film industry, you can even see familiar Hollywood faces downtown while their movies are in production. At the same time, it is a laid-back city of unique neighborhoods, forested boulevards, and genteel charm, exemplifying everything people love about the south.

Community Information

Originally founded as a trade center at the intersection of two railroads, Atlanta maintains its prominence as a city at the junction of major routes. Interstates 75,85, and 20 all meet downtown, as do a whole host of other highways. Everything is accessible by a short drive, from the unbridled beauty of Georgia's coast to the Great Smokey Mountains. The neighborhoods of the city are as diverse as its people, with glamorous Buckhead offering upscale cuisine, the Little Five Points area an offbeat magnet for the eclectic, and thousands of blocks with everything in between.

Living in the Area

There is no shortage of things to do in the ATL. Piedmont Park is a massive urban nature area that hosts tennis tournaments, jazz festivals, and many more activities throughout the year. The Georgia Aquarium is the largest in the western hemisphere and worth the price of admission just to see the massive tank where the world's only captive whale shark makes her home.

Features of the Area

Atlanta is also known as the city in a forest because it has more tree canopy than just about anywhere else. To really grasp this, take a trip to the Sun Dial restaurant, a rotating eatery located 80 floors up in the downtown Westin. Looking out over 360 degrees of trees dotted with buildings, you might forget 5 million people live there!
