  • “The pick-up was easy, it took 5 minutes from arriving at the desk to driving out the car, and the return took even less time.”

Where to go

The main centre of skyline, with its distinctive downtown skyline, Centennial Olympic Park and moving history connected to the Civil Rights Movement is just a few minutes' drive from the airport. Other Georgia cities within easy reach by car include Augusta, Columbus and Savannah, each of which has its own fascinating cultural attractions.

Nearby Atlanta Airport

The Martin Luther King Jr National Historic Site, where the civil rights campaigner lived as a child and is now buried, is just a 15-minute drive from Atlanta Airport, while the Centre for Civil and Human Rights is around 20 minutes away by car. This forms a huge part of the area's - and indeed the rest of America's - history.

Longer drives

Augusta, Georgia's second largest city, is just over a two-hour drive from Atlanta Airport. Here, you'll find the preserved childhood home of Woodrow Wilson, the 28th President of the United States. The Morris Museum of Art, which houses art from across America's Deep South, can also be found here.

Eating and drinking

The state of Georgia is in America's Deep South, which is well-known for its hearty, comforting home-cooked dishes. Many local restaurants serve such food, including sweet potato pie, buttermilk chicken and crab soup. Of course, you have to wash it down with an ice-cold Coca-Cola, as the drink originates from Atlanta.

Things to do

The World of Coca-Cola Museum explores the fascinating history of the much-loved soft drink - did you know the reason Santa Claus wears red is because he was being used in a Coca-Cola advertising campaign? The Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta is also well worth a visit, home to sea lions, dolphins and sharks.


See the site of the 1996 Summer Olympics at the Centennial Olympic Park, which is now the city's largest park. The Fountain of Rings, a magnificent water feature shaped like the five Olympic rings, is one of the park's main draws, with a special show taking place at the fountain four times each day.
