I've been to Atlanta a few times, and it has become one of my favorite cities. It's got everything I love - lots of open space, great food, cool music, and there's always something to do! Check out what I would recommend if you ever visit Atlanta.
If you are ever in Atlanta, I recommend visiting the Center for Civil and Human Rights. This one institution challenged me to think about what human rights for all beings looks like, and inspired me to be better and do better for not just people like me but for all humans.
