At the center of a thriving economy and host to an explosion of culture, Atlanta typifies what it means to be “New South.” Despite a citywide revitalization, traditions survive including old-fashioned Southern cooking, Atlanta Falcons football games and visits to the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site. A city divided into distinctive neighborhoods, a taste of the unusual awaits at Little Five Points, which makes its reputation with funky boutiques and vintage stores, while upscale shopping and dining are dominant in the Buckhead area. Atlanta’s Midtown district brims with museums and performing arts venues while Downtown’s towering skyscrapers are the backdrop for the city’s top sports complexes and attractions.
