From Downtown to Midtown Atlanta
Welcome to Atlanta, Georgia! Whether you know it as “Hotlanta”, “ATL”, or “The A”, you’re in a city that boasts the largest population in the State of Georgia and serves as a transportation hub for not only the United States, but also the entire world.
Founded in 1837 by the Georgia General Assembly, the original settlement was known as “Terminus”, and incorporated as Atlanta in 1847. Though General Sherman burned the city to the ground during the Civil War in 1864, today, the city is a thriving world center, with exciting offerings in culture, music, and dining. Many different neighborhoods make up the city, which you may have heard of, like Buckhead, Atlantic Station, or Virginia Highlands, to name a few. Today, we’re going to focus on the areas known as Downtown – also known as the Luckie-Marietta District – and Midtown, which contain several intriguing stops and are a great way to introduce you the capital of Georgia.
