Deep in the heart of Georgia
Sprawling across suburban Atlanta is a thoroughly modern city, with a highly contemporary outlook on life. Famed as much for its cultural as its corporate life (Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines and CNN are based here) it’s the high-tech gateway to America’s Deep South. From here you can connect to more than 200 USA destinations. So explore!

Must be there for:
Visit in June and you’ll hear The Bard as never before... with a drawl from the Deep South, that is, as practised in the Georgia Shakespeare Festival.
Visit the Underground for bargains – it’s not a tube station but a whole underground market full of funky and unusual stalls.
If you find the city heat oppressive, head out to Lake Lanier, which has a top-notch beach for cooling-off and getting brown.
