DOWNTOWN ATLANTA is the central business district of Atlanta and is the location of many corporate or regional headquarters such as SunTrust and The Coca Cola Company. It also is a central location for city, county, state and federal government facilities; Georgia State University; sporting venues; and most of Atlanta's tourist attractions.
Downtown has been labelled the epicenter for tourist activity in Atlanta. Perhaps the most symbolic is the 21-acre Centennial Olympic Park, built for the 1996 Summer Olympics, where outdoor events are held throughout the year. Downtown is also home to the Georgia World Congress Center, the third largest convention center in the US, the CNN Center, the Georgia Aquarium and World of Coca Cola. There are also notable additions to the area that will appeal to anyone from anywhere, like the College Football Hall of Fame and the Center for Civil and Human Rights.
Downtown Atlanta hosts a number of great neighborhoods to live in. These include Castleberry Hill, a trendy yet historic neighborhood filled with great galleries and shops, as well as Fairlie-Poplar, a livable community noted for its wealth of historic buildings and beautiful architecture. Other top neighborhoods to live in include SoNo, South Downtown and the trendy Five Points area.
