Atlanta, Georgia, USA

Home runs and history

There are few cities with a more eclectic heritage than Atlanta, the state capital of Georgia and birthplace of Martin Luther King. Weekend breaks in Atlanta should include a visit to the thought-provoking Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, which includes his boyhood home and the church where he was baptized. Lighten the mood with a visit to the home of Atlanta's other great export, the World of Coca-Cola museum, or seek out some thrills at Six Flags Over Georgia theme park. Sports fans on a city break are well catered to – check out the Atlanta Braves for some Major League Baseball action at SunTrust Park, the NBA's Atlanta Hawks at Philips Arena, or the NFL's Atlanta Falcons at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium. After the game is over, stop in at Atlanta's many bars and clubs where you can enjoy the rest of your evening, or take a ride on the SkyView Ferris Wheel across from Centennial Olympic Park to see the city lit up at night.
