Visit Atlanta.

Originally founded around an early railroad junction, this longtime transportation hub is still today home to one of the world’s busiest airports. The city itself boasts a fast-paced energy and industriousness to match. From its three bustling business districts (each with their own separate skylines) to the bungalow-filled neighborhoods that surround them, visitors will find in Atlanta an effervescent energy and an optimism that are downright contagious. Head in to take a bite out of the Big Peach and you might never want to leave this positively sweet city.

With new development initially spurred in the mid-‘90s, Atlanta’s teeming downtown features stunning skyscrapers and plentiful shopping options up and down Peachtree Street. Surrounding a prominent downtown park, the area features walkable streets and numerous city landmarks and attractions, including sports stadia, the Children’s Museum of Atlanta, and the Georgia Aquarium. The latter destination is the largest aquarium in the Western Hemisphere and home to thousands of animals, a must-see for visitors of all ages.

Head to Midtown Atlanta to find a dense collection of institutions that help make the city the Southeast region’s cultural capital. Stroll through sprawling Piedmont Park—Atlanta’s answer to New York’s Central Park—and on the right day you might hear the soaring strings and woodwinds of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, which is just one of the many acts that perform there. Nearby, peruse masterworks housed at the High Museum of Art and engineering feats found in the Museum of Design Atlanta.

Of course, no trip to Atlanta is complete without enjoying down-home comfort-food classics. Fill your stomach and feed your soul with Southern favorites like chicken and waffles or a bowl of Brunswick stew. And while you’re in town, see what Atlanta’s cooking up on the cutting edge too. Check out the Buford Highway neighborhood, home to 1,000-plus immigrant-owned businesses, for an astonishing (and downright delicious) display of cultural and culinary diversity. And head to either Krog Street or Ponce City markets to experience food halls that are packed with both established award-winners and plucky upstarts.

Enjoy all that the ATL has to offer, both old and new, and get there with ease by booking a flight into Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport on Southwest Airlines. Explore flight options and select one that suits your schedule, then start planning your trip with the help of the thought-starters you find here.
