One of the city's most iconic landmarks is the Atlanta skyline, dominated by the impressive Bank of America Plaza and the Peachtree Tower.

@Sophia,

 

We rent our place in Mableton, GA, which is the town just on the northwest border of Atlanta, and we can see the beautiful skyline from our road.  It's like living in the country and only 11 miles/17.7 kms from downtown Atlanta.
