Spotted wobbegongs and sea dragons, a rain forest and the African Plains, the world's largest dinosaurs and one of its tiniest creatures, the phantasmal poison frog —all in Atlanta METRO? These and other unexpected delights are found in the six county area comprising Atlanta and the cities surrounding it. Land of Southern belles and gold miners, of historic house museums and au courant art galleries, of trendy antiquing enclaves and lively shopping districts and malls, of quintessentially yesteryear town squares and striking skyscrapers, Atlanta METRO has a vibe as alluring as its internationally spiced restaurant scene.
Home of a presidential library, birthplace of a Civil Rights Movement leader, showcase of the Civil War-era locomotive, "The "General," and final resting place of both Union and Confederate soldiers, Atlanta METRO is where you'll catch sight of Miss Scarlett's honeymoon gown and Captain Butler's breeches, Broadway caliber theatre and the third-longest tenured professional hockey league. It's where you can visit a gold mine, take a ghost trolley tour, shop at farmer's markets, stroll through historic neighborhoods, come eye to eye with the Great Masters, scream your lungs out at an amusement park, regain your inner peace at an urban park, hike a mountain trail and explore wetlands and other natural wonderlands—without ever leaving the area.
Atlanta METRO—The possibility is palpable.
