insight into the city`s role in the American Civil War. Business travellers too flock to Atlanta due to its modern facilities, contemporary convention centres and ideal location; with over three quarters of the US population living within a two hour flight of the city.

shop around for a good deal. The majority of cars in the US are automatic transmission and anyone used to driving a manual will quickly adjust. If you are travelling with small children, advise the rental company in advance to ensure they can provide a car seat as it is illegal to drive with children under the age of 2 without one. 

With so many companies to choose from, car rental in Atlanta offers visitors a number of options so it is worth thinking about your needs in advance. Most rental cars come with air conditioning as standard and during most of the year this can have a significant impact on your comfort. You will also find an impressive range of car sizes and styles to  choose from, with everything from small, economy models to four-wheel drives and convertible sports cars. If you are travelling with a large family, comfort will be a priority so be realistic about your requirements. Saving a few dollars with a smaller car might seem like a good idea when organising the trip but after a few days with the kids sitting on top of each other you might change your mind. 

There are many popular driving routes for day trips in the area and your preferences will depend on the age and tastes of your travelling companions. If you are interested in the gold mining history of the region, take a drive to pretty Dahlonega in the foothills of the north Georgia mountains. The site of the USA`s first major gold rush, the town now offers tours in two mines and visitors can try their hand at panning for gold. If you visit in the spring time, the town of Macon is well worth a visit for its annual Cherry Blossom Festival. Located just 80 miles to the south of Atlanta, Macon also offers some interesting civil war sites to explore.
