HOSPITALITY doesn’t come more welcoming than in America’s Deep South, and in particular gorgeous Georgia.
My recent whirlwind visit to the state took in the city of Atlanta, the charming country town of Roswell, and Athens – the birthplace of rock band R.E.M.
Our first stop in Atlanta (below) was to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. The city was the birthplace of Martin Luther King and also a focal point for the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s.
The museum explores conflicts from across the world, but glaringly absent for some reason was Northern Ireland.
Next up was lunch in the famous Paschal’s Restaurant, a favourite of Dr King’s, which serves up its signature soul food – fried chicken.
Atlanta is the home of Coca-Cola too, and has an informative museum that contains everything you need to know about the world’s most famous soda. There’s also a chance to sample nearly 70 beverages from around the globe.
One of the best ways to discover Atlanta is to board an electric-powered car, which gives an amazing street-level tour of the city and allows you to stop off at various points of interest.Click Here For The Full Article
