Atlanta, Georgia is one of the American South’s most exciting, most vibrant cities. Home to the headquarters of major corporations like CNN, UPS, Home Depot and Coca-Cola, Atlanta offers students an enormous variety of attractions. Covering topics as diverse as economics and finance to Civil War and Civil Rights history, Atlanta is a rich ground for student educational tours.
Dr. King and Civil Rights History.
One of Atlanta’s greatest contributions to the American ethos is undoubtedly Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Born in Atlanta, this giant of the 1960s Civil Rights movement espoused the non-violent resistance methodology developed by Mohandas K. Gandhi.
In Atlanta, students are offered an intimate portrait of this leader, with itineraries which include the home he was born in and the National Historic Site which bears his name. A tour through the Sweet Auburn District reveals Civil War Roots and the echoes of Dr. King’s enduring message of hope and equality.
Diverse educational opportunities abound.
Atlanta’s connection to the Civil War resides in its unique placement as one of the only major US cities to not have access to a seaport. This led to its development as a railroad nexus, which was exploited by Union troops to advance the cause of the North during the Civil War. Troops were even stationed here, in Sweet Auburn.
Margaret Mitchell, author of Gone with the Wind, was born here and a tour of her home and museum offers movie memorabilia and a glimpse into the life of the woman who memorialized Scarlet O’Hara and Rhett Butler, later to be played in the film by Vivian Leigh and Clark Gable.
Beyond Atlanta’s rich history, students can also take advantage of tours of corporate headquarters, like CNN. The Coca-Cola company offers a walk through the history of the iconic beverage at Coca-Cola World, also.
Atlanta offers a wide array of cultural and educational tours, with its network of museums. The Ferndale Museum of Natural History, Georgia Aquarium and Zoo Atlanta are only some of Atlanta’s top tier educational attractions.
