Atlanta, Georgia, is home to 5.5 million people. When you venture into the lush foliage that engulfs much of Atlanta and frames its many skyscrapers, you’ll immediately understand why it’s referred to as “The City in a Forest.”

An Atlanta tour must include the Atlanta History Center. Learn about the city’s roots as a railways terminal, as well as its role in the Civil War, when it was nearly burned to the ground. Fact became fiction when Margaret Mitchell featured Atlanta as a major setting in her novel, “Gone With the Wind,” and you can learn about the author and the book at the Margaret Mitchell House and Museum.

Stop by the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site to learn about the Civil Rights leader, and pay your respects at his final resting place. From there, your Atlanta sightseeing should continue at the Georgia Aquarium, where you can meet some beluga whales, swim with whale-sharks, and get up close and personal with sealife in the touch tanks.

Cap off a beautiful day with a trip to Stone Mountain Park. If you take the Summit Skyride, you’ll get an outstanding view of the city.

    I'm considering an internship in Atlanta, but I don't have a car. It is possible to get around by bus or train? Such a large city probably doesn't have a lot of things at walking-distance…

    I feel like Atlanta is overlooked too much. However it could just be that the city grew really fast recently and people haven't yet realized how good a city it is

    I have been to the airport, but several employees were rude to me so I said, not visiting here for sure. It's too bad, bc it looks very nice. I wonder how their public transit is, they didn't cover that in this video.
