Atlanta Student Travel

Atlanta from North Avenue Bridge

Student groups yearning for a traditional Southern getaway will truly enjoy a few days exploring this wonderfully wooded, multiple-skylined and richly diverse cultural and economic heart of The Peach State. Atlanta encompasses 132.4 square miles and rests comfortably amongst the scenic foothills of the fabled Appalachian Mountains; at 1,050 feet above mean sea level, it boasts the highest elevation of major cities east of the Mississippi River. Established in 1837 at the junction of two railroad lines, the city literally rose from the grim ashes of the Civil War to become a vital national center of commerce; today, it’s the primary transportation hub of the Southeastern United States and an important higher-education center with more than thirty colleges in its distinguished university system. Travelers headed to the temperate clime of the seventh most-visited city in the nation will find perfect weather awaiting them – all the better to experience her fabulous museums, historic landmarks, unique neighborhoods, vital downtown area and hundreds of incredible parks, nature preserves, and gardens. This jazzy, energetic city is the sizzling backdrop to an exciting culinary scene, and boasts an eclectic fusion of urban establishments garnering national attention, marvelous ethnic restaurants hawking cuisines from every corner of the world, and traditional eateries dishing up good ol’ Southern-style menus. “Hotlanta” is also home to professional franchises for three major team sports as well as its own ice hockey and soccer franchises, and gracious host to important international, professional and collegiate sporting events. Whatever you’re after – from peach pie to pizza, world class BBQ to baseball and theme parks to theatre – Atlanta’s got it, and then some; come ‘n’ get it – and wash it all down with an ice-cold Coke!
