Atlanta is the largest city and the capital of the U.S. state of Georgia. One of America’s most prosperous cities, it is the unofficial capital of the south. Atlanta is also the birthplace and headquarters of Coca-Cola – the most recognized brand name in the world. 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.
