Welcome to Atlanta
Atlanta is a bustling urban city that acts as a major hub of business and culture. As Georgia’s state capital, nearly six million people call this metropolitan area home. Atlanta has a wide variety of real estate spread across many distinct districts and neighborhoods. The prestigious Buckhead neighborhood, for instance, is known for its spectacular multimillion-dollar estates. The city also has many other inviting neighborhoods with historic properties, spacious single-family homes, and stylish contemporary condominium developments and apartments in dramatic repurposed industrial buildings.
This thriving modern city offers some of the southeast’s most diverse shopping, dining, and entertainment options. The Lenox Square shopping center in Buckhead is an upscale retail destination with close to 250 businesses. This four-level mall is anchored by Bloomingdale’s, Macy’s, and Neiman Marcus department stores. Other businesses include restaurants such as Zinburger Wine & Burger Bar and True Food Kitchen and high-end fashion brands including David Yurman and Louis Vuitton.
In the Old Fourth Ward district, the enormous former Sears building is home to Ponce City Market, a mixed-use development with a world-class food hall. The building is one of the largest in the United States, and the gourmet food offered includes creative fare from several James Beard Award-winning chefs. Another must-visit food hall can be found at Krog Street Market in the hip Cabbagetown neighborhood. Atlantic Station in Midtown Atlanta features dozens of stores, bars, and restaurants in a chic open-air mall.

Covering 189 acres, Piedmont Park’s many amenities include numerous sports fields, 12 lighted tennis courts, 22 barbecue pits, boating lakes with docks and fishing piers, splash pads and swimming pools, and two large children’s playgrounds. Piedmont Park hosts many of Atlanta’s largest events, including Atlanta Pride, music festivals and superstar performances, and outdoor movie screenings throughout the summer. The adjacent Atlanta Botanical Garden spans 30 acres and houses numerous themed gardens, woodland areas, and indoor recreations of habitats such as deserts and tropical rainforests.
The 1929 Fox Theatre is a former movie palace in Midtown that hosts Broadway shows and other cultural and artistic performances. Midtown Atlanta’s other cultural amenities include museums and galleries such as the High Museum of Art.
