The Ellis Hotel Releases Their Travel Guide for First-Time Visitors to Atlanta
July 19, 2016 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel NewsJuly 19, 2016 - The Ellis Hotel, downtown Atlanta's sole remaining independent boutique hotel, is proud to release their newest eBook, a travel guide for first-time visitors to Atlanta.
Originally established in 1837 as an intersection point between the Western & Atlantic Railroads, Atlanta has maintained its status as the Southeast's center of commerce while earning a reputation as one of the nation's leading cities for progressive views. In recent years the city has continued to experience explosive growth. There are so many fun things to see and do that your biggest challenge will be deciding how to fit it all in.
While Atlanta may be known for its barbecue, there is so much more to the Atlanta culinary scene. Boasting over 300 restaurants in the downtown area alone, there is something sure to please every appetite. No matter if you're looking for a quick bite at a counter-service diner or a five-course meal worth of a James Beard award, there is something to satisfy every taste bud in Atlanta.
Another big appeal to Atlanta is that even though the city is a bustling metropolis, it does an excellent job of offering opportunities to commune with nature. The rails-to-trials Atlanta Beltline connects the city's neighborhoods like no other, while Piedmont Park and Centennial Olympic Park offer natural escapes in the middle of urban environments.
As you make your way through the city, you certainly won't want to miss some of the top attractions. The Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights are some of the crowd favorites, all located within walking distance of each other in Centennial Olympic Park. If sports are more up your alley, be sure to book your Atlanta accommodations when either the Atlanta Hawks, Falcons or Braves are in town to catch all the action.
While some cities may make it difficult to get from Point A to Point B for first-time visitors, Atlanta's streetcar makes getting to all the top downtown destinations easier than ever. The 2.7-mile loop has 12 stops that connect Centennial Olympic Park, the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site and many of the city's top restaurants. If you are flying into Atlanta, the MARTA train takes you straight to downtown for $3 a person.
With so many attractions, sights and sounds to check out, it's easy to see why visiting Atlanta is a peachy idea any time of the year. Discover more reasons why it's about time you made a trip to Atlanta and visit http://blog.ellishotel.com/first-time-visitors-guide-atlanta-white-paper/.
