Book Your Hotel Room Way In Advance

Atlanta is the preferred destination for many conventions that take place throughout the year,
so you might find hotels fully booked if you do not plan in advance.

Racism Is So Passé

Atlantans have long moved past their so called ‘racial biases’ and quite honestly, have little
time to delve on such futile mentalities.

Most people here are polite and accepting, so don’t fret about being treated as an outcast,
if you are of a different origin. Don’t believe the rumors or the isolated incidents that are
common throughout America.

Go for a daily or weekly pass. Even though, MARTA is quite cheap, buying a daily or weekly pass

Downtown gets quite deserted at night and has been known to have many panhandlers. Avoid walking
