Atlanta is one of the most popular travel destinations in the South. However, it's a large sprawling city with limited public transportation, so you'll need a car to get around. After securing your rental car at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), you can drive to Grant Park and visit Zoo Atlanta, where you can check out the animals, regroup and unwind before heading into downtown.
Atlanta has a perimeter highway which runs around the city called I-285. Just outside the downtown area, I-75 and I-85 meet and make their way through the city together before separating again on the outskirts of the downtown area. Visitors to Atlanta can take in an art exhibit at the High Museum, or catch a musical concert of the Atlanta Symphony, at the Alliance Theater next door.
If you take a visit to the Fox Theater, you can enjoy a Broadway musical, or a performance by the Atlanta Ballet. Baseball should head to Turner Field, where you can watch a game from the bleachers and cheer on the Braves.
A direct flight from McCarran International Airport (LAS) in Las Vegas to Atlanta takes a little over four hours. For convenience, visitors can hop on a shuttle after landing at ATL, for quick access to the airport's car rental center.
