Atlanta!

Savannah would be better for ya. You’d just get in trouble in Atlanta.

Gone with the Wind

While I’ve been to the American South before, I had never been to Atlanta, the vibrant and economic heart of it. After General Sherman and the Union Army burned the city to the ground during the American Civil War, Atlanta had to rebuild, start from scratch, and that’s exactly what it did. If Scarlett O’Hara and Rhett Butler were to walk the streets of Atlanta today, they wouldn’t recognize it. Gone was the South of yesteryear, the Atlanta that visitors today see is a city of the future. But don’t let the sky scrapers and busy traffic fool you-there’s still plenty of old fashioned Southern cooking, perfectly charming Southern hospitality, and utterly stunning magnolia trees to be had.

    Nice pictures, Julie! I have never been to Atlanta either, but many of the other southern cities. I am interested to see what it is all about. As a Gone with the Wind fan, I would love to see the Margaret Mitchell house!

      Thanks! It was a really photogenic place, the gorgeous weather (albeit hot) didn’t hurt either! I think what I enjoyed most about it was that it had a little bit of everything. It didn’t feel entirely just one “labeling” if that makes sense. Yes, the house was really cool. I think any fan would love visiting!
