About Our City

Known as the capital of the Southeast, Atlanta has experienced unprecedented growth over the past two decades. Although the official city population remains steady, the metro population has grown in the past decade alone by approximately 40 percent, to roughly 4.3 million today.

Fast-growing Atlanta has emerged as a banking center and is today the world headquarters for many Fortune 500 companies. Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, one of the nation’s busiest airports, remains a transportation hub worldwide, making metro Atlanta easily accessible to the numerous global businesses that operate in the city and the broad range of countries that are represented here.

The 1996 Olympics served as a catalyst for a second resurgence of Atlanta, transforming it from a great American city to a greater international city by fueling more than $2 billion in new construction and other projects. Known for its parks, sports teams, shopping, museums and entertainment, some of Atlanta’s unique offerings include CNN studio tours, the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic Site and the World of Coca-Cola. Atlanta museums highlight the Civil War period, Atlanta and Georgia history, science and technology, and African-American history. The city also boasts a variety of collegiate, amateur and professional athletic teams and events to entertain and excite sports fans.
