Atlanta: The capital of the South and a hub for TV, film and civil rights

Sitting at an elevation of 320 meters and boasting a subtropical climate, Atlanta is not only one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, but it's also a new hub for Hollywood blockbusters and TV shows. In the last 20 years, Atlanta has seen its population grow by 2 million residents, and after Los Angeles and New York, has become number 3 in TV and film production in the United States. Hit TV series such as AMC's The Walking Dead, Netflix's Stranger Things and big-time movies including The Hunger Games and Captain America: Civil War are just a few TV and film productions from Atlanta.

Atlanta is also replete with history. Being the city where Martin Luther King Jr. grew up, it played an important role in the civil rights movement of the 1960s and is often viewed as the capital of the southeastern United States.
