With the nation’s busiest airport and the third largest concentration of Fortune 500

companies, Atlanta is not only a commercial powerhouse but a thriving cultural attraction

with museums, historical sites, and a lively nightlife.

• The Georgia Aquarium, the world’s largest aquarium with over 100,000 specimens in tanks

holding approximately eight million gallons of water.

• The Martin Luther King, Jr. national Historic Site, the boyhood home of the great civil

rights leader.

• The Atlanta Cyclorama and Civil War Museum, home of the world’s largest

painting, “The Battle of Atlanta” and home of the historic Civil War locomotive,

“TEXAS” (hero of the “Great Train Race”). Through spectacular music, art, and

sound effects, history comes alive as you step back to July 22, 1864, and

become part of the battle.
