Best Time to Visit Atlanta

The most pleasant time to visit Atlanta is in spring, starting from the end of March when all over Georgia the beautiful magnolia trees, cherry trees and wildflowers are in bloom. Thanks to the coastal winds, temperatures are relatively mild in summer but it can get very humid. In the swamplands you will find quite a few mosquitoes during that time. Later in the summer the hurricane season starts which lasts until the fall. In October the leaf coloration starts together with the Indian summer. Given the mild climate, outdoor activities such as golf are an option all year round. At times there can be ice storms in winter.

Things to know about Atlanta

Atlanta: ‘Capital’ of the New South - From rail hub to business city

Atlanta was founded in 1837 as the final destination of two railway lines. Ten years on, it became a city but until the civil war it remained just a small center for rail cargo. During the civil war however, Atlanta was a main target of the Northern States given its importance as a rail hub. After 75 days of siege, General William Sherman won against the resistance of the Southern States and completely burned down the city. Once the civil war was over it didn’t take long for the city to be rebuilt and it soon developed as the ‘Capital of the New South’.

Today Atlanta is one of the most high profile business cities in the States and is home to the headquarters of giants such as Delta Air Lines, Home Depot, UPS, Coca Cola and CNNAtlanta’s airport is the largest in the world. In 1996, when Atlanta was hosting the Olympic Summer Games, over 2 million people came to visit.

One of the most famous sons of the city is Martin Luther King, who was born in Atlanta in 1929.
