Living in Atlanta

The Atlanta area is home to more than 5 million people, and growing. It is a dynamic, multi-cultural metropolis.

Arts & Culture
Atlanta has many significant museums, including the Museum of Art, the Museum of Design Atlanta, and multiple contemporary art museums. History museums and attractions cover a variety of subjects, from the Civil War to Jimmy Carter’s presidency to ancient art. The World of Coca-Cola and the world’s largest indoor aquarium are just a few other attractions.

A mild climate is ideal for year-round outdoor events. Numerous parks and public spaces include the BeltLine, a former rail corridor that forms a 22-mile loop around Atlanta's central neighborhoods.

Dining & Entertainment
Near Atlanta’s downtown area, dining and entertainment offerings have expanded to meet the needs of young, college-educated professionals. Throughout the city you’ll find a mix of urban establishments, ethnic restaurants offering cuisine from every corner of the world, and traditional restaurants and diners specializing in Southern cooking.

Atlanta is also home to the Braves (baseball), the Falcons (football), the Hawks (men’s basketball), and the Dream (women's basketball). The final PGA Tour event, the TOUR Championship by Coca-Cola, is played annually at East Lake Golf Club.

In Atlanta, you’ll enjoy a unique combination of old-fashioned Southern hospitality and 21st century enthusiasm.
