A perfect blend of the old and new South marks the capital of Georgia. Atlanta has a population of just over half a million people, and is in the ten most populous cities in the US. It is also known as 'Hotlanta', although temperatures are generally milder than in other areas of the South, and rainfall is generous over summer and winter both.
The city has been known as a manufacturing hub, railroad center and supply depot, as well as being instrumental in protecting and promoting minority rights during the 50s and 60s, earning it the nickname 'The City Too Busy to Hate'.
Clark Atlanta University is right in the center of Atlanta - yet the immediate area is not considered especially walkable. The James P Brawley Drive region is ranked 68 out of 100 for walkability, so if you want to see anything other than the center of town, a car will be necessary.
That said, there are grocery and clothing stores, restaurants, coffee shops, bars and bookshops all within a half a mile of Clark Atlanta University, and often closer.
