Atlanta - The largest city in Georgia, renowned as the major commercial and transportation hub of the southeast United States
Atlanta is the largest city and capital of Georgia, is the seat of Fulton County. It is situated in the northwest part of the state at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains near the Chattahoochee River.
The city's economy is led by the service, communications, retail trade, manufacturing, finance, and insurance industries. The convention business is also important, and Atlanta is home to many major corporations, including Coca-Cola, which was founded there in 1892.
Major highways around the Atlanta region
Six interstate highways—I-20, I-75, I-85, I-285, I-575, and I-675—help metropolitan Atlanta residents and visitors get where they need to go.
Since their construction in the 1960s and 1970s, Atlanta's interstate highways have helped fuel urban sprawl, first around the northern I-285 perimeter and Interstates 75 and 85 north of the city. In the 1980s and 1990s, growth moved toward the southern part of the perimeter, following I-20 both east and west, as well as I-75 and I-85 south. This sprawl in turn fueled growth in traffic volume that prompted the interstate highway expansion and rebuilding projects that continue to this day.
