  • The historic district of Atlanta, located next to one of the stops of the route the tourist tram free of charge. It was here that he lived and preached by Martin Luther King. Nowadays, in addition to this, the area is known for their market. The market seemed to be nedešëvym, but the area is very picturesque, though somewhat neuhožennyj. It is recommended to visit!
