If the word "Atlanta" summons to mind Southern hospitality, sweet tea on a warm sunny day, and the setting for Gone With the Wind, you would be right - you can find all that here - but there is much more to experience. Today's Atlanta is more than the city that began as a tiny railroad settlement as it has grown into the cultural, economic, and social capital of the South, replete with Fortune 500 companies, hip neighborhoods, and five-star dining.
Atlanta's metro population of 4.1 million people, hailing from more than 80 countries, is literally growing by the minute. In fact, this capital city draws more than 250,000 people a year with its high quality of life, soaring job market, and low cost of living. Of course, an average annual temperature of 64°F doesn't hurt either.
Imagine a place that not only has the world's busiest passenger airport, gleaming skyscrapers, and a thriving economy but also picturesque parks, friendly people, and tree lined streets - most of which are named Peachtree Something-or-Other - and you are imagining the vibrant, dynamic city that is today's Atlanta.
