Atlanta: Capital of the New South

Atlanta’s entrepreneurial spirit led to an economic boom that capped by a successful bid to host the Olympics in 1996. Since then it led to much recognition. 
 
One of the city’s landmarks, the Centennial Olympic Park downtown, commemorates this event. Other attractions, Underground Atlanta, World of Coco-Cola, and the Martin Luther King Jr. Historic Site, are all within a mile of the Olympic landmark.
 
Walking history tour of Underground Atlanta, part of "the origional Atlanta"’s architecture sites, show what life was in the early 1800’s. 
 
World of Coca-Cola, located in a three-story attraction adjacent to Underground Atlanta, encompasses the rich history and progress of the refreshing beverage that was created in Atlanta over 115 years ago.
 
The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site was established in 1980 to protect and interpret the places where the Nobel Peace Prize-winner Dr. King was born, worked, worshipped and is buried.
