About Atlanta, GA
As the largest city in the state of Georgia, Atlanta is home to nearly 500,000 people. The whole Atlanta metropolitan area is much bigger, with almost 6 million people in the city and surrounding communities. That makes it the 9th largest metropolitan area in the country, and it’s only getting bigger, which is a major plus for a home builder in Atlanta.
Located towards the northern end of the state, Atlanta was founded back in 1837. It started out as a major transportation hub where two railroad lines intersected. The city grew rapidly but it was dealt a major blow when most of the city was burned down during the Civil War. The people of Atlanta were quick to rebuild after the conflict was over, and the city grew by leaps and bounds up until the present day.
Considering its origins, it should probably come as no surprise that Atlanta is still known as an influential hub in the transportation industry. The Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is known as the busiest airport in the world in terms of passenger and aircraft traffic. The airport handles more than 2,500 departures and arrivals every day. Atlanta’s subway system also sees a lot of traffic as it is considered the 8th busiest subway system in the U.S.
Sports play a big role in Atlanta, GA as well. The city has a sports team for most major sports: the Atlanta Hawks (NBA), the Atlanta Braves (MLB), and the Atlanta Falcons (NFL). The Braves are in fact the oldest operating professional sports franchise in the country, though it should be noted they got their start in Boston. Having so many teams to root for can look pretty attractive for home builders in Atlanta, GA.
One of Atlanta’s claims to fame comes from hosting the Summer Olympics in 1996, which served as the centennial celebration for the world famous games. Atlanta, Georgia has also played host to two Super Bowls and four NCAA Final Four Men’s Basketball Championships.
