In Atlanta, there is always something exciting to do, and Southern hospitality follows you wherever you go. In such a sprawling city, the only way to see everything is to rent a car. At the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport (ATL), your car rental is easy to pick up.
Just outside of the downtown Atlanta area, two major interstates, 75 and 85, merge together for the trip through downtown, and then separate again on the other side. This city has its own perimeter highway, Interstate 285. In downtown, you can enjoy an evening out at the renovated Underground Atlanta, with its nightclubs and restaurants; try Pittypat’s Porch.
The Georgia Aquarium is one of the biggest in the nation, with more than 100,000 animals from 500 species, swimming in more than 8 million gallons of water. At Grant Park, you can visit the Atlanta Zoo; make time to visit the adorable family of pandas.
