Have you been planning a trip to Atlanta and you want to check out the city but you aren’t sure how to get around or what to see and do? Never fear, this short mini guide to Atlanta and all it has to offer will be your golden ticket to having the best trip you could possibly hope for, along with travelling in comfort and style the whole time and not having to resort to expensive taxis or crowded buses!
Atlanta – A City
Atlanta is one of the most influential cities in the south, having been plagued by wars and built back up again in sleek modernity but with a strong past influence. It keeps its old traditions while making new ones with ease and it’s the perfect place for any visitor – business or pleasure. Whether you’re visiting the suburbs or one of the three main central districts of Downtown, Midtown or Buckhead, Atlanta has something for everyone. Piedmont Park is a favourite among locals and visitors alike, while Decatur offers some of the most unique shopping in the city across its boutiques and higher end shops. Why not check out the Governor’s Mansion and hit the nightlife scene in Buckland before retiring to one of Atlanta’s historic and gorgeously appointed hotels in Little Five Points or Midtown.
Transportation Around The City
If you enjoy the finer things, and who doesn’t, ditch the bus option and hire ATL car service to do all your driving needs. Travel in style and comfort with one of their luxury sedans, cars or vans, which is an ideal way to travel around the city if you’re travelling with more than one person. Likewise, car services like ATL are ideal for business trips, allowing you to keep your mind on work and not having to worry about how to get from A to B and beyond. With competitive prices compared to taxis, taking your own private car hire service can be the most enjoyable and time/budget friendly way to make your way around the city. They also provide car service to and from the airport, making your arrival and departure from the city seamless.
If you’re lucky enough to be visiting Atlanta in the right season, the amount of events to attend borders on the hundreds in terms of options. Between festivals such as the Chomp and Stomp Chili and Bluegrass in November, the Dogwood Festival in March, or the Atlanta Jazz or Film Festivals in the summer months, Atlanta is certainly a bustling city full of festivities almost year round. If sports are more your speed, check out an Atlanta Braves ball game, or an Atlanta Falcons football game. Atlanta is also home to the NBA team Atlanta Hawks, so sports are a huge thing in the city, adding another thing to an already enormous list of things to do!
So there you have a great mini-guide to Atlanta and all it has to offer. Atlanta is also a great jumping off point for those who are looking to explore more of the deep south in and around the region, with Atlanta being well placed to provide easy driving distances to both Alabama and Tennessee for those with more time on their hands looking to explore further afield.
