  • Tourist attractions

    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.

    If you’d care to overload your senses, US style, with entertainment both extravagant and loud, then squeeze in a visit to the Georgia Dome. Its sweeping curves are an instantly recognisable part of the Atlanta skyline. One of the largest entertainment centres in the world, the Dome offers a variety of spectacles, from American football to the gear-grinding stunts of monster trucks. If your timing is right, you may even get to see some of your favourite musicians in action.

    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.

  • Leisure activities

    If you want to experience some of the best performing arts in the region, then your trip to Atlanta ought to include a visit to the Fox Theater. Originally a movie palace, the theatre now hosts Broadway shows and some of the biggest names in music.

There are tours available, allowing you to take in the grandeur of the venue’s opulent ballrooms and luxurious lounges.

    Atlanta is an art-lover’s paradise. Perhaps the most impressive attraction is the lavish Besharat Gallery, which showcases works by local and international artists and photographers.
