Atlanta was founded in 1837 as a railroad hub. Today, it's an airline hub with the busiest airport in the U.S. at Hartfield International Airport. Most of the town was burnt during the Civil War. Today, Atlanta serves as the Capital of the South and is home to major companies Coca-Cola and CNN. The World of Coca-Cola attraction and the CNN tour as well as the Georgia Aquarium are not dog-friendly so you would need to have a pet sitter, day care or somewhere to take your dog during your visit. However, there are lots of things to do in the Atlanta area with your dog with you.

Atlanta has many pet-friendly hotels. The two top ones in our view are the Loews Atlanta Hotel at 1065 Peachtree Street and the Hotel Indigo Atlanta Downtown at 683 Peachtree Street. The Loews Atlanta is extremely dog-friendly and includes amenities for your pup such as doggie room service, dog beds, treats, water dishes and more. The Hotel Indigo offers a seasonal (Springtime) doggie happy hour on Thursdays from 5 to 8. Both hotels can find you pet sitters to watch your dog when you need to go to one of the unfortunately not dog-friendly attractions in town. Other dog-friendly hotels from all hotel chains are represented in and around Atlanta. If you are planning to camp in an RV or tent on your visit to Atlanta then consider the Stone Mountain Park Campground sixteen miles east of Atlanta.

Centennial Olympic Park is a 21 acre park highlighting the 1996 Atlanta Olympic Games. During the hot summer there is a five ring water fountain for you and your pet to cool off in. Dogs are allowed on leash in the park. Once a year, usually in August, Piedmont Park hosts "Bark in the Park" a dog-friendly symphony. Also once or twice a year there is another type of "Bark in the Park". This is dog day at an Atlanta Braves game at Turner Field. Check the Braves website for this years dates. The Atlanta Preservation Center holds walking tours of Atlanta, many of the tours are outdoor tours and your dog is welcome. If shopping is what you want to do, then Stone Mountain Village sixteen miles east of Atlanta is the place. Leashed dogs are welcome in the shopping center and many of the stores. There is also an off-leash dog park named Red Dog Park here. For additional hiking with your dog you can go to the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area. There is the Cochran Fitness Trail and other trails as well. There are also other off-leash dog parks around town and the suburbs.

The most dog-friendly attraction in the area is the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. They provide "Mutt Mits" to clean up after your dog who may tour the battlefield from the 1864 Civil War Battle of Kennesaw Mountain. There are trails and memorials throughout the park and it has a total of 2,923 acres. The park is located about a half hour northwest of downtown.

There are a lot of dog-friendly restaurants in Atlanta as well as the suburbs. Nancy G's Cafe at 4920 Roswell Road in Atlanta offers Southern Dishes such as fried chicken, a Salmon BLT and a doggie dining menu with such items as grilled chicken, bacon, rice & carrots and more. Johnny Rockets is a dog favorite as is Jason's Deli but there are many patio dog-friendly restaurants to choose from. In Sandy Springs you can take your dog to the 5 Seasons Brewing Company for natural foods and brew but please don't take your dog there on Friday and Saturday nights because it is too crowded.

Nearby trips from Atlanta include the very pet-friendly Chattanooga Tennessee and Savannah Georgia.
