Getting to #ATL

Arrival by Air:

Atlanta is the home to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the busiest airport in the United States. There are MARTA trains that will take you from the airport to downtown. For more information: https://martaguide.com/hartsfield-jackson-international-airport-marta-tips/ 


Arrival by Car:

Three major interstates, I-20, I-75 and I-85, converge in downtown Atlanta. The city itself is surrounded by I-285. This road serves as the "city" boundary, so you may hear locals refer to living "ITP" or "OTP" - this is short of Inside or Outside of the Perimeter.


Things to Do


We hope you will spend a little extra time in your beautiful city. These are some of our top recommendations:

Getting Around Town:

Atlanta's public transit system is the MARTA. Please note that you'll need to purchase a Marta Breeze pass at a MARTA station. For more information, go to https://www.itsmarta.com/

In Downtown Atlanta, MARTA also runs a Streetcar. This is your best bet (and most cost-effective) way of getting to the major tourist locations.

If you wish to explore the many other neighborhoods of Atlanta, we recommend calling an Uber or Lyft.


Food to Eat


You might know Atlanta as the home of Coca-Cola, Waffle House, and Chick-fil-A, but we are also a world-class restaurant town. In addition to the southern fare you'd expect, Atlanta has food from every part of the world. Whether you're looking for high-end dining or a cheap lunch, Atlanta has it all. We also recommend checking out the international foods along Buford Highway.
