Atlanta, GA– Atlanta has been named to National Geographic’s prestigious Best of the World 2022 list. The roundup showcases locations, communities, and experiences to inspire travelers.
“This recognition is a tremendous testament to the experience Atlanta provides travelers,” said William Pate, president and CEO, Atlanta Convention & Visitors Bureau. “The culture of our city is one that few can rival with diverse communities and civil rights history that left a lasting legacy which continues to influence the world.”
The Best of the World 2022 list was created, researched, reported, and written in collaboration with National Geographic Traveler’s international editorial teams from more than a dozen offices around the world. Framed by five categories—nature, adventure, culture, sustainability, and family.
Reasons for inclusion on the list include the city’s role as an epicenter of Black entrepreneurship, incubating businesses with a deep and progressive history. The destination’s accessibility due in part to Atlanta BeltLine also gave the city an edge. The project, which repurposed old railroad corridors into pedestrian-friendly paths, transforms neighborhoods for walkers, runners, and cyclists.
With the return of travel worldwide, Atlanta continues welcoming visitors and offering experiences like no other destination. New restaurants, hotels and attractions add to the city’s diverse communities.
