Atlanta flights give way to the big city with lots of Southern hospitality, traces its history from a railroad junction in the wilderness to the economic and cultural capital of the American South. With more than 4 million people calling Atlanta home and millions of travelers booking Atlanta flights every year, the city maintains its “homey”, small-town Southern hospitality with all the glamour and sophistication of an international city.
Bring a tour guide with you on your Atlanta flight and read up on the city's hot tourist destinations. Aside from the World of Coca-Cola and the Centennial Olympic Park, Atlanta has a rich history that is lost on many first-time visitors. Tourists booking flights to Atlanta will find 100 streets that include the word "Peachtree," will likely find peanuts (Georgia's major agricultural crop) and not peaches, and will be standing in the birthplace of Martin Luther King, Jr. Agriculture aside, you're sure to find a world of class when you book a trip to Atlanta.
It isn't called "Hotlanta" for nothing. Tourists booking flights to Atlanta during the summer months should be prepared for hot and humid weather. The good news is that many travelers opt to visit Atlanta during cooler months, so you're likely to find cheap plane tickets to Atlanta and cheap hotels. Spring and fall are the best times to travel to Atlanta if you are concerned about the humid summer weather. Be forewarned, however, that thousands of college students gather for the start of a new school year in late August. Finding a hotel room can be tough during this time.
Getting around Atlanta
Hop on Atlanta’s subway, which is run by Metropolitan Area Rapid Transit Authority, and you’ll be downtown in 15 minutes. The transit authority also runs the buses. Atlanta has notoriously bad traffic, some of the worst in the world, so you’ll want to avoid driving if you can. A nice way to avoid traffic is biking the 15-mile loop in Piedmont Park, or head a few miles northeast of Atlanta’s downtown to hike through Fernbank Forest.
