Awash in office towers and major hotels, Downtown is a familiar haunt for business professionals. In recent years, it has also proven increasingly attractive to folks in pursuit of big-city life, who take advantage of its restaurants, coffee shops, lofts, and condos. While the 1996 Olympics served to ramp up interest in the area, Downtown has come into its own as a destination for work and for play. Notable sights in the vicinity include Centennial Olympic Park, MLK Jr. National Historic Site, Underground Atlanta, Georgia Aquarium, and the State Capitol.
