Often called the capital of the South, Atlanta is one of the biggest, most diverse metropolitan areas in the nation, home to over 5.6 million people. It’s also home to the world’s busiest airport, a thriving arts scene (including a booming entertainment industry; look out for the yellow filming location signs all over town), and the densest tree cover of any major city, earning it the nickname “the city in a forest.” There’s a youthful spirit here, one filled with excitement and ambition as the city and its varied neighborhoods maintain a constant, energetic motion. Emory just happens to be perfectly situated within reach of it all, located in the historic Druid Hills neighborhood, just northeast of downtown.
There’s more than grits and sweet tea on the menu when it comes to Atlanta’s dining scene (though you’ll certainly find all the Southern staples, too). With a global mix of cuisines and a new restaurant opening nearly every week, it’sbecome a bona fide foodie’s paradise.
