Runners, cyclists, and walkers have plenty of opportunities to explore the city and parks. Known as “the city in a forest,” Atlanta has more tree coverage than any other major U.S. city and miles of trails wind through its parks. Even more natural escapes are just a short drive from the heart of the city. A popular destination is the nearby Cascade Springs Nature Preserve, which spans 120 acres and features an extensive trail system with views of natural springs, waterfalls, and abundant wildlife.
Atlanta has a rich live performance scene including theatre, music, and dance. The Tony award-winning Alliance Theatre previews big productions before they hit Broadway, and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has been recognized with 28 Grammy Awards.
