If you think Atlanta can't get any hotter, duck into Buckhead, the city's most beautiful and poshest neighborhood where the scene keeps heating up. For those who dig chic, the district pulsates to the beat of specialty shopping, exhilarating entertainment, distinctive dining and a no-holds-barred nightlife. And in the midst of it all is W Atlanta - Buckhead, an oasis of cool where art that walks on the edge and sophistication flirting with style are no mirage.
From its provenance as an important trading center in the 19th century, Buckhead was made to regale with retail. Step out into the "Beverly Hills of the South" and you're at Lenox Square and Phipps Plaza, two of the region's most exclusive shopping malls surrounded by more than 350 unique boutiques -- a real-life fashionista fantasy. With two of the country's 14 Mobil five-star restaurants, there's no finer wining and dining experience to savor flavors by the world's top chefs. Warm your heart with Southern charm as you stroll tree-shaded residential streets filled with magnificent mansions nestled in verdant acreage, indulging in colorful folklore when you make house calls at the Greek Revival-style Governor's Mansion and the Atlanta History Center, a Palladian villa designed by Phillip Schutze.
Beyond Buckhead, Atlanta covers it all, down to the epicenter of the world's media heartbeat at the CNN Center. Pop bottles of famous fizz from across the globe at the World of Coca-Cola or tee off at legendary golf courses set against stunning mountains. Relive history through the footsteps of Martin Luther King Jr. or zip through storied enclaves on a Segway ghost tour. Hike Stone Mountain or let other athletes do the work for you when you root on the Braves, Hawks, Falcons or Thrashers. With a burgeoning portfolio of Fortune 500 and blue chip headquarters and world-class universities in town, it's never sleepy time down south anymore, whether you're visiting for business, pleasure or happily blending the two.
