Known as “The Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement,” Atlanta emerged as the epicentre for activism from 1940 to 1970 when it became the cultural catalyst for freedom without discrimination or repression. Black leaders called for voting rights, access to public facilities and institutions, and economic and educational opportunities for African Americans.
The civil rights movement had a spiritual home in Atlanta, specifically in the Sweet Auburn district, where the influence of Martin Luther King Jr. and his wife on civil rights history can still be felt to this day. It is here that King first had “his dream” while honing a particularly powerful speech that would have a seismic impact on US race relations.
Atlanta is also popular for its cultural and food scene with patios in every neighbourhood, and for being the number 1 filming location for movies and TV shows in the world, like the popular show Stranger Things filmed on the outskirts of Atlanta.
You will discover the legacy of the Olympic Games of 1996 by taking a stroll down the Centennial Olympic Park to see its iconic Olympic rings and end your tour with a ride on the Skyview Atlanta Ferris Wheel where you will admire the skyline of the city from above. The perfect way to end this introductory tour!
