Atlanta, Georgia is one of the largest cities in the southern United States and proves that southern hospitality is not a thing of the past. Home to both the world's busiest airport and the world's largest aquarium, Atlanta has something to offer each type of traveler. The music industry has settled here, producing artists of all genres, from hip-hop and rap artists like Usher, T.I. and TLC to country groups like Sugarland to rock groups like the B-52s. Award-winning film The Blindside was filmed here and some of the country's top chefs, like Kevin Rathbun, Richard Blais, and Kevin Gillespie, call the city home. Atlanta is the setting for Gone with the Wind and has survived the Civil War. It was also the host city for the 1996 Summer Olympics, which has influenced much of the city's development.

There may not be an abundance of hostels in Atlanta, but the ones here are worth visiting. Atlanta has many diverse neighborhoods, any of which would be a great place to stay in a hostel. Buckhead is the city's arts district, but also has the most bars and nightlife. Decatur, further out of town, has the hip university crowd found near Agnes Scott and Emory. Little Five Points is home to the city's alternative stores, with vintage clothing shops, record stores and smoke shops lining Euclid Avenue. All of these neighborhoods can be accessed through Atlanta's public transportation system, MARTA, which has both buses and trains. Each ride is around $3.00 USD.
