The closest major airport is Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, also known as ATL or KATL, located at a distance of 8 miles from the city center of Atlanta, GA.
Due to the fact that almost all the major attractions in Atlanta are located within walking distance, people say that finding your way by foot in the city could transform into an enjoyable sightseeing experience. If you do decide to walk your way through Atlanta, be sure to grab a local map first, because there are many street that are named alike, and you might easily get lost.
Once you're in downtown Atlanta, there are many options which will help you to find your way around, such as the 2 MARTA subways, the Gray Line Loop Tour, which is often the 1st choice of tourists, running through Midtown, Buckhead and the downtown area, as well as plenty of taxi services.
The best way to get around in Atlanta, is considered to be by car, even though the traffic can turn into a nightmare, during rush hour, (which is between 6 30 and 9 am, and from 3 30 to 7 pm), although, if you're on a budget, during your vacation in Atlanta, the most convenient choice remains the metro.
