Atlanta Map

You can find a good map of Atlanta GA and surrounding areas below.

Atlanta is the biggest city in the U.S. state of Georgia. It has a small-medium size population of 420,003, making it the 40th largest city in the United States. This small figure doesn`t do justice to the size and importance of Atlanta, which is the central focal point of the massive Atlanta metropolitan area, which has a huge population of 5,268,860, the ninth largest metro area in the country. This entire metro area is the real Atlanta, in a cultural and practical sense. The city is large, bustling, and an important transportation hub via air, train, and highway. The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is the world`s busiest airport. Are you starting to see why the figure of 420,003 is misleading?

The size of Atlanta`s economy ranks 15th among cities around the globe, and ranks 6th among American cities. It is a center of finance, services, I.T., and higher education. Many giant corporations have their headquarters in metro Atlanta, including Coca Cola, Home Depot, AT&T, UPS, Delta Air Lines, and Turner Broadcasting.

The city`s climate is considered humid subtropical, with hot humid summers and cool winters - cooler than many other cities in the southern US. It receives plentiful rainfall throughout the year, particularly in summer and winter.
