Good to know:
Unfortunately, Atlanta is considered to be one of the USA's most dangerous cities, so be alert after dark and avoid rough spots (ask locals or hotel staff for tips).
Atlanta street names are confusing, with 70+ streets with "Peachtree" in their name! When someone says "Peachtree" without clarifying, they mean Peachtree Street, a major north-south thoroughfare through Downtown, Midtown, and Buckhead.
