Southern hospitality—make yourself at home in the city

Well, I declare! From the Civil War to the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, Atlanta always seems to find itself in the middle of milestone moments in American history. And when you book an Atlanta vacation rental, you'll find you're never far from a host of landmark attractions, from the childhood home of a beloved martyr, to the presidential libraries of a famed leader. At its core, downtown buzzes with an intensity only found in America's largest metropolises. When you feel the need to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city, massive parks provide an oasis of natural beauty.

From parks to malls—get out and get moving!

Atlanta built Centennial Olympic Park as a gathering spot for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games. The athletes may be gone, but you can still enjoy your own workout as you walk along trails or frolic in the Olympic Ring-shaped splashpad. Set just outside downtown, the 190-acre Piedmont Park features jogging paths and basketball courts. The park also hosts a farmer's market and an adjacent botanical garden offers summer concerts. Give your credit card a workout at Lenox Square, a massive 4-story mall in the upscale Buckhead district and return to your Atlanta vacation rental with a bundle of goodies.

Highlighting hometown heroes and local legends

Atlanta loves to celebrate its own and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site honors the life of its beloved native son. Set in the heart of the city, the national park includes the civil rights leader's birth home, burial site, and Ebenezer Baptist Church, where the reverend famously preached. A 1.5-mile trail connects the site with the Jimmy Carter Presidential Library and Museum, which explores the life and administration of the 39th U.S. President. The World of Coca-Cola highlights the history of Atlanta's most famous product and even features a tasting room where you can sample bubbly concoctions.

Hotlanta: sweltering summers in the south

If you book an Atlanta vacation rental for the summer get ready to slather on the sunscreen as the days are sunny, humid, and often feature highs in the 90s. Things cool off considerably in the winter with daytime temperatures in the 50s and lows dropping to freezing. Snow is rare, but don't get shocked if you get a light dusting in January. The city receives about 50 inches of annual rainfall, so make sure you always have an umbrella on hand. Enjoy mild conditions in the spring and fall when temperatures hover in the 60s and 70s.

Get lost (in nature) and leave the asphalt behind

Despite its imposing skyline, Atlanta offers its fair share of green space with more than 340 parks, nature preserves, and gardens combining for approximately 3,600-plus acres of pristine land. If you're really looking to escape the city, however, make the 25-minute drive north to Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, a rural region dotted with sleepy streams and lush hillsides. Fishing is allowed year round on the expansive Chattahoochee River, which is teeming with trout, bass, and catfish, and more than 240 species of birds call the area home.
