Sweet tea, sugary peaches, and syrupy Southern drawl are just a few of the things that put Atlanta on the map for travel. This huge city boasts three separate skylines that each put other Southern cities to shame. While located in the northern half of Georgia, Atlanta is not only the financial and cultural center of the state, but of the American South. Top attractions such as CNN Center, the New World of Coca-Cola, and the Georgia Aquarium make it a tourist hotspot, too.
If you want to get to know the real, down-to-earth Atlanta, African-American and Civil Rights history are where it’s at. From the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site to the National Black Arts Festival held each July, diving into African-American culture is easy. Experience Atlanta in all her varied beauty from one of our Atlanta vacation rentals.
If you’re not sure how to see all the top attractions in Atlanta, just ask a local. Of course, you could simply stay at Twelve Centennial Park, Autograph Collection. The suites in this swanky high-rise let you experience what it’s like to live in the heart of this metropolis. Plus, they’re mere blocks from Pemberton Place, where you’ll find the highest concentration of attractions. There’s a little something for everyone: The Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Children’s Museum of Atlanta, and the College Football Hall of Fame are all nearby.
Looking for a quieter experience? Decatur is just a few miles from all the excitement, but locals love that it still has that small-town charm. Stay in The Cottage Bed & Breakfast to feel like you never left home, then walk to restaurants, bars, and boutique shops.
Downtown bustle, suburban serenity, or one of many other local lifestyles. The choice is yours when you book a vacation rental in Atlanta with Travelocity for less than the other guys. Now that’s a pretty sweet deal!
