Welcome to Atlanta
Welcome to Atlanta, the "hub" of the South where the future is flavored with a southern accent. From its growing economy and international flair to its small town hospitality, Atlanta has become one of the nation's most appealing places to call home. A growing center for arts and culture, Atlanta has achieved fame for restoring the famous Fox Theatre , historic homes and Civil War monuments as well as for attracting world-class talent in theater, opera and symphony. Atlanta is home to the Georgia Aquarium, the"world's largest aquarium" with 8 million gallons of fresh and marine water and more than 100,000 animals from around the globe.
In the state where former Governor Zell Miller led the charge for excellence in education by creating the HOPE Scholarship and Pre-kindergarten programs, Georgia is on the cutting edge of the best education. And Atlanta, home of the Center for Disease Control and the American Cancer Society headquarters, is also recognized for its excellent health facilities and world-class medical institutions.
A mild four-season climate welcomes an early spring and keeps summer late, promoting year-round outdoor activity in local parks and recreation facilities. Special events and festivals celebrating the arts, music and cultural pride are held throughout the year. A lazy day rafting down the Chattahoochee River, fishing at Lake Lanier or Allatoona Lake or picnicking at Stone Mountain are all less than an hour from downtown.
And sports fans have something to cheer about! Atlanta is home to the National Football League's Falcons; major league baseball's Atlanta Braves with 13 consecutive division titles; the NBA's Atlanta Hawks; and the NHL's Atlanta Thrashers!
With all of this, who needs another reason to move to Atlanta, but just in case…Atlanta is famous for its beautiful and diverse residential neighborhoods, and offers sophisticated in-town living and peaceful suburban living. What ever your flavor, Atlanta is the perfect place to call home.
