Hotlanta is HOT!

Sometimes it takes being someplace else or reading it where you'd least expect it (Delta's SKY magazine) to find out just how hot your city is!
  1. Atlanta has hosted more major sporting events since 1994 than any other place in the world.
  2. Atlanta has the nation's 9th largest metro population (almost 5 million in 28 counties) and is the fastest growing.
  3. Atlanta ranks 5th among U.S. cities with the largest number of black-owned businesses (over 60,000 in 2004).
  4. Atlanta ranks 3rd in the nation among cities with the most Fortune 500 company headquarters (13).
  5. Metro Atlanta is the 6th largest producer of higher education degrees in the USA.
  6. In 5 years, more than 1900 Earthcraft houses have been built by GA builders.
  7. The Atlanta Ballet, started in 1929, is the oldest continually operating ballet company in the nation.
  8. 100 streets in Atlanta include Peachtree in their name (talk about frustrating!).

That's really cool that Atlanta is so HOT!
