Atlanta… Like New York but more compact!

Last updated: Jan 30th, 2019

Sure, everyone wants to take a bite out of the Big Apple that is New York. With its urban glamour, bustling streets and iconic attractions, no one does it better than New York… or do they?

For something different set your sights on Atlanta! This incredible city has all the same features as New York but on a smaller, more accessible scale. Known as the Capital of the South, you’ll be drawn in by its diverse and thriving downtown area, trendy bohemian neighbourhoods and sport-loving residents. 

In Downtown Atlanta you’ll be able to drink yourself silly on 60 different types of fizzy drinks at the Coca Cola Museum, stuff yourself with some all-American food at the world’s largest drive-in restaurant, The Varsity (it’s ah-mazing), and dance it all off in the Fountain of Rings at the Centennial Olympic Park.

Perfect for any budding athlete, Atlanta boasts six professional sports teams, year-round live sporting events and historically enriching sights – not to mention being the hosts of the 1996 Olympic Games. Everything about the city is logistically simple, allowing you to access most sights on foot. Right outside your hotel you have the Philips Arena (Atlanta Hawks’ NBA team) and the Georgia Dome (Atlanta Falcons), while the MLB’s Atlanta Braves are just a short bus ride away at Turner Field. You don’t get that kind of proximity in New York!
