More About Flights to Atlanta

Atlanta’s Fascinating History

With a current population of almost 450,000, Atlanta is actually the fifth city in Georgia to act as state capital and currently hosts almost 17 million visitors annually. These days it’s most commonly referred to as Hotlanta, due to the warm climate and hopping nightlife, although it was burned to the ground as an act of war in 1864. But like its official symbol, the Phoenix, Atlanta rose from the ashes to become Georgia’s largest city and a hub for music, shopping, and industry.

Atlanta for Nature Lovers

It’s likely not the first thing that pops into your mind when thinking about visiting Atlanta, but outdoor adventure is a large part of its appeal. A short drive from the city brings you to hiking trails, rock climbing, camping, fishing, and paddling. Atlanta is very close to the southernmost entrance of the Appalachian Trail, and the nearby North Georgia Mountains and Chattahoochee National Forest both offer equestrian opportunities.

Stone Mountain Park is the best of both worlds. Part amusement park and part natural wonder, Stone Mountain lets you hike the world's largest piece of exposed granite, spend a few hours at Craftivity camp, and then cap off your day with a nightly fireworks spectacular.

Best Time to Visit Atlanta

Atlanta’s always got lots going on, so it’s easy to book your trip based on your interests or weather preferences. If you don’t mind hustle and bustle and humidity, summer is your best bet – with Atlanta’s Fashion Week and the Peachtree Road Race both taking place in July. Deciding to visit a month or two on either side will mean cooler temperatures and lower prices all around.

Springtime in Atlanta is mild and pretty. The dogwoods are beautiful in bloom, but severe thunderstorms can really put a damper on your visit. Fall in Atlanta brings cooler breezes and events like the renowned Atlanta International Music Festival that takes place in September, and the foodie festival, Taste of Atlanta, that happens in October. Since peak tourist season is May to August, finding cheap hotels in Atlanta is absolutely doable.

Finding Cheap Flights to Atlanta

Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport's square footage equals more than 45 football fields. Known for being the world’s busiest airport, finding cheap flights to Atlanta is not terribly difficult.

Traveling in and Around Atlanta

In spite of its somewhat intimidating size and location on the outskirts of Atlanta, getting to and from Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport is not complicated or expensive. The usual taxis and shuttle buses are readily available, but Atlanta’s public transportation system, MARTA, has a station that is attached to the airport beside baggage claim. A 20-minute train ride downtown costs $2.50 while taxis typically cost at least $30 plus tip.

Once you’re in the city and heading out and about, MARTA remains your best bet, since their train system can’t be beat for price or convenience.
