ABOUT ATLANTA

Emory University is located in the beautiful Druid Hills area of Atlanta. With a population of over four million people, Atlanta is one of the nation's most dynamic cities, serving as the business and transportation center of the Southeast. Located only one hour from Lake Lanier and less than two hours from the North Georgia Mountains, Atlanta is home to some of the best white-water rafting in the eastern United States. The city offers tremendous recreational opportunities for individuals, couples, and families.

Sports enthusiasts will appreciate Atlanta's commitment to professional and amateur athletics. The city is home to major league baseball, football, basketball teams and hosts the Peachtree Road Race, the largest 10K race in the world, held annually on July 4.

Cultural offerings include the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, opera and ballet companies, High Museum of Art, Emory’s Michael C. Carlos Museum, showcased in Archeology magazine, along with a variety of events in the visual arts, music, and theater.

The Atlanta-Montreux International Music Festival is held here annually. Take a look at the King Center, Carter Center, Fernbank Science Center and Natural History Museum, as well as Atlanta's colleges and universities, arts organizations and museums, professional sports teams, outdoor activities and restaurants. Also of interest are the Web sites for nearby vacation spots such as Savannah and Tybee Island, (4 hour drive from Atlanta) Georgia, Hilton Head, South Carolina (4 hour drive); Sea Island, Georgia; and the Callaway Gardens (2 hour drive) near Columbus, GA.

The Atlanta area is also well known for gourmet dining and ethnic restaurants whether you are in midtown, downtown, Buckhead, Decatur, Virginia Highlands, Emory Village or the new Emory Point mixed-use area, Little Five Points, or the north side.
