About the Location:

Atlanta is the capital and largest city in Georgia. Burned to the ground during the civil war, the city was quickly rebuilt and is considered by many to be the cultural capital of the South. One of the few cities in the country to host professional opera, ballet, orchestra, and theater, those interested in performing arts love Atlanta. It’s also home to professional football, basketball, and baseball teams, and it’s not uncommon to see blockbuster movies being filmed downtown.
