Atlanta is the capital of the U.S. state of Georgia and in the 1860’s it played an important part in the American Civil War and in the 1960’s it played an important part in the Civil Rights Movement.

Perhaps pay a visit to the Atlanta History Centre which chronicles the city's past, and also to the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site which is dedicated to the African-American leader’s life. Downtown you will find the city’s Centennial Olympic Park which was built for the 1996 Olympics, and which encompasses the massive Georgia Aquarium.
