About Atlanta

443,775 in city
5,376,285 in metro
131.78 mi² (341.32 km²)

Birthplace of Coca-Cola (the most recognized brand name in the world) and the unofficial Capital of the South, Atlanta is one of America's most prosperous cities. Set in the beautiful red-soiled forests at the lower end of the Appalachian Mountains, Atlanta has kept much of its southern grace even while earning a reputation as a modern and progressive city.

The skyline is truly unique, stretching in a straight line along Peachtree Street from Downtown all the way to the tallest suburban building in the U.S., in Sandy Springs. In fact Atlanta really has several skylines, which may all be seen together in various combinations from different vantage points. One of the best viewpoints is from the romantic Piedmont Park in Midtown. Atlanta's most famous natural "skyscraper" is Stone Mountain - a giant dome of granite towering over the eastern suburbs.
