Living in Atlanta
Atlanta, Georgia’s capital and largest city, is the leading cultural and economic center of the American Southeast with a diverse population nearing 500,000 and a metropolitan area exceeding five million.
Rich in history and attractions, Atlanta was the seat of the Civil Rights Movement and now boasts more than a dozen Fortune 500 companies, countless consulates and major nonprofits, thriving arts and sports scenes, and one of the nation’s greatest concentrations of government bodies and agencies. While Hartsfield-Jackson, the world’s busiest airport, provides easy connections to the rest of the nation and globe, Atlanta enjoys uncommon access to economic opportunity and quality of life with a cost of living significantly lower than larger metropolitan cities. And at just two hours from the Appalachian Mountains and four to the Atlantic coast, Atlanta offers a comfortable and balanced urban experience suitable to any lifestyle.
