A-town. The ATL. Hotlanta. Whatever you want to call it, Atlanta is known for many different things: its Southern hospitality, it's sports teams and peaches.

The largest Hindu Temple in the world outside of India is located 10 miles outside of Atlanta. It's known as the birthplace of the civil rights movement in America - you can visit the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site to learn more about Dr. King's work and life.

After you've had your fill of chili dogs, fried pies and French fries, you can go for a very long walk all the way from Atlanta to Alabama on the 'Silver Comet Trail' - it spans 61.5 miles over railroad trestles and under mountains - that's a long walk!
