Whether this is your first trip to Atlanta or your 21st, you will always discover something new. If you want to immerse yourself in a little heritage, pay a visit to the Atlanta History Center, located in Buckhead. Set in 33 acres of immaculately maintained gardens, the centre has four historic houses to explore, each with a distinct exhibition. Here, you can learn about the American Civil War, but also educate yourself about more modern events.
The Atlanta Botanical Garden offers a bubble of calm, away from the city’s mayhem. A kaleidoscopic wonderland of countless species, the garden offers fauna native to the Andes Mountains alongside rare orchids and desert plants from Madagascar. You’ll also find a generous array of animals, from colourful birds and frogs to less-showy tortoises and wily crocodiles.
