In the turbulent 60s, Atlanta was known to many as the city ‘too busy to hate’. Today, it’s still a fast-growing metropolis with the world’s busiest airport. Home to dazzling skyscrapers designed by luminary Philip Johnson, the family-friendly city is famous for museums, shopping, street art and the Atlanta Motor Speedway. After a day of speed, pull into the slow lane and unwind at one of our hand-picked hotels – bookable on Culture Trip.
If you’re staggering away from the speedway with the scream of Nascar engines in your ears, the Bell House is the soothing antidote. This 1874-built home has been in the Bell family for generations – and renovated to be as charming as it would have been the day it was first occupied. You’ve got a choice of three rooms: the Iris, the Bluebird, or the expansive Bell Master suite. Each comes furnished in expertly-observed period style – with four-poster beds, restored floorboards and genuine antiques.
