7. Atlanta

Atlanta may have Old South charm, but it has very distinct city skylines which are Downtown, Midtown and Buckhead. It also has the world’s busiest airport; and to keep the lovers of cities happy, there are dozens of neighborhoods to explore. One is the Atlantic Station which is a reclaimed industrial site. It’s located midtown and has housing, entertainment and shopping and; if you’re a resident, you won’t even have to get in a car and drive anywhere. Everything is right within walking distance. At the West End is a development designed with older adults in mind and the area’s also within walking distance of two colleges. In the end, you will actually find that many of Atlanta’s older neighborhoods are geared towards pedestrian traffic.

Being that Atlanta is the fourth most literate big city in the US, there’s a large range of colleges and universities. Georgia State University, Georgia Tech, Emory University and Atlanta University Center are those among the listed. The massive Georgia Aquarium is also located here as well as the Fox Theatre, the metropolitan ballet, two symphony orchestras and the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site.
