While Atlanta is sprawling with towering buildings made of glass and steel, it is truly a city in the forest, dotted with expansive green spaces. This urban oasis is a multicultural haven for residents and visitors alike yet exudes Southern hospitality. Individuals from all walks of life add to the city’s charm and personality.

“Atlanta remains a top destination for business and leisure travelers,” said William Pate, president and CEO at the Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Within the next two years, Atlanta will open an additional $188 million in new hospitality development, continuing to provide a new and refreshed destination for visitors for years to come.”
