At 4,784 feet above sea level, Brasstown Bald is Georgia’s highest peak. On a clear and crisp day you can make the beautiful skyline of Atlanta, the capital of Georgia. With over 5 million people living in the metropolitan area of Atlanta, it is the ninth largest metro area in the nation. It is the cultural center of the south, and is often called the capital of the southeastern portion of the United States. Home to the most consistently busy airport in the U.S., Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, Atlanta is the transportation hub of the Southeast. Delta Airlines, Coca-Cola, and Home Depot are only a few of the major corporations who call Atlanta home. Georgia is more than just Atlanta, though. It is diverse in its culture, landscape, and history. You can take in a Braves Game at Turner Field, where the 1996 Olympics were played, see a performance at the historical Fox Theater, or raft down the Chattahoochee River. From the Blue Ridge Mountains in the north to Cumberland Island, Georgia’s southernmost barrier island, to the farmlands of central Georgia, the “Peach State” offers it all.
