Georgia’s largest city and capital, Atlanta is a thriving metropolis anchored by its southern roots.
Change things up with a short trip to Stone Mountain Park in Stone Mountain (about 36 minutes away). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Georgia Aquarium, admire the landmark architecture of Fox Theatre, take in nature's colorful creations at Atlanta Botanical Garden, and examine the collection at World of Coca-Cola.

For reviews, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Atlanta trip builder site .

Barcelona, Spain to Atlanta is an approximately 12-hour flight. Traveling from Barcelona to Atlanta, you'll gain 6 hours due to the time zone difference. In July, daily temperatures in Atlanta can reach 37°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 25th (Thu) to allow time to drive to Asheville.
