If any companies call you indicating they have special rates on flights or hotels available, they are “pirate housing companies” and DO NOT represent APPA, or area hotels or airlines that APPA has partnered with. If they reach out to you, we strongly recommend that you DO NOT use their services. No legitimate hotel or airline will ever contact you directly asking you to book with them.


Atlanta, Georgia is the home to CNN, The World of Coca-Cola, Centennial Olympic Park, the Georgia Aquarium and the National Center for Civil and Human Rights. The city is situated among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains containing unique topography and the densest urban tree coverage in the United States.

In the 1960’s Atlanta became a major organizing center of the civil rights movement with Martin Luther King Jr, Ralph Abernathy and students from Atlanta’s historically black colleges playing major roles. The city is home to the Martin Luther King Jr National Historical Park, where visitors can take guided tours of the birth home of the famous civil rights leader.

APPA is proud to return to the home of Martin Luther King Jr during this important time of justice reform. To enhance your visit, below is a collection of links to Atlanta information, attractions, restaurants and more.
