Discover Atlanta, Georgia

is a travel itinerary of 70 places that tell the story of Atlanta -- its picturesque homes and skyscrapers, tales of former slaves, educators, authors, and millionaires who shaped it. Established as a railroad terminal point in 1836, the city today is a major entertainment and cultural center of the South. The website includes essays on antebellum Atlanta, industrial Atlanta, the African American experience, and growth and preservation. (National Register of Historic Places, National Park Service)
