The word is finally getting out about Atlanta’s truly superlative cultural offerings. With its unique Southern saga, Atlanta has a distinctive flavor and offers an incomparable hospitality combined with an uncanny business sense. Almost completely destroyed during the Civil War, Atlanta now claims a handful of the world’s most successful companies, one of the country’s greatest sports teams, a forward‐thinking symphony orchestra ranking among the best on the American continent, the largest natural history museum in the southeast United States, and the largest airport in the world; there is good reason that it has become such a popular travel destination. Share a morning with finned friends at the aquarium or ponder Civil Rights history at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Memorial, closing the day with an unforgettable concert experience at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center – a remarkable facility where some of the country’s most prized artists come to enthrall audiences.
The city enjoys a flourishing theatre and music scene. The classical music scene in particular includes the renown Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and Choir, Atlanta Opera, Atlanta Ballet, and many more.
