Faces & Places of Atlanta in Atlanta
Atlanta is the capital of Georgia. Around 450,000 people live here. Southern flair, hard working ethics, and neighborhoods with unique personalities abound. Atlanta gets a lot of flak, but it’s a melting pot of culture. Georgia houses the world’s largest airport, aquarium, and it’s the birthplace of Coca-Cola. We also have mountains, swamps, oceans, lakes, rivers, forests, skyscrapers, and peaches. There’s a lot going on here and it always feels as though it’s on the rise.

The summers are hot and humid, and the winters give us snowstorms we’re ill equipped to handle. We have a fantastic music, arts, and film scene. The latter has brought many a film and TV production here. There are a slew of festivals and annual events. There’s sweet tea everywhere, and our culture is diverse. There’s something for everyone – it’s just a matter of seeking it out.

Meeting people with friendly attitudes and inspiring minds.
Pollen. Traffic can be horrible from time to time, but the pollen! Yuck.
Hospitality and humidity. Commonality and abnormality.
