Atlanta is Georgia's largest city and the state capital.
As the "Empire City of the South," Atlanta has developed into a major metropolis that uniquely combines the Old South's grace and gentility with the New South's modernity and commerce. The location for both "Gone with the Wind" and "Driving Miss Daisy," Atlanta has a fascinating history that set the stage for becoming one of America's most frequently visited destinations.
Atlanta is a bustling headquarters for corporations, industry, manufacturing, finance, and media. The city's motto is "Resurgens" (Latin for "Rising Again"), as a tribute to being reborn into prosperity after burning to the ground in the Civil War.

Don't miss the World of Coca-Cola, a two-story memorabilia gallery and interactive museum showcasing everything about the most popular brand of beverage on earth, then watch a live assembly line bottling Coca-Cola, and sample your own selection of Coke drinks and flavors.
