Centennial Olympic Park


Atlanta Holidays

Southern charm, contemporary modernism

Atlanta is the capital of the New South, with the charm and charisma of the Old.

This city blends contemporary modernism and southern traditions as much now as it did during the days of Gone With the Wind. We love smelling the blossoms from the romantic peach trees while sipping a tall, dewy glass of the sweet iced tea Atlanta is famous for. 

Head to the Buckhead district for fantastic shopping and dining or make your way downtown where you’ll find Centennial Olympic Park, the CNN studios and the World of Coca-Cola. Stop by Sweet Auburn Curb Market for delicious treats fresh from the farm or hop on the Atlanta Streetcar to explore more of the city.

Grab a bargain at the North Georgia Premium Outlets or embrace your inner Scarlet O'Hara with a visit to Margaret Mitchell House. Explore the legacy of the Civil Rights movements at the King Center and get back to nature with a stroll along the Atlanta BeltLine or a trip to Stone Mountain Park, just outside of the city.

Twin your stay with the birthplace of rock 'n' roll, Memphis, or head to New Orleans, the Big Easy.
