Visit the small, historic Georgia town of Hapeville. It's only a few minutes from the Atlanta airport and is en route to Atlanta itself. http://www.hapeville.org/
History: Once regarded as a somewhat depressed industrial area, Hapeville has, in recent years, seen significant gentrification. It has been discovered by young professionals seeking historic neighborhoods close to Downtown Atlanta, and home prices have risen dramatically. Since 1947, Hapeville has been home to a Ford assembly plant, recently making the Taurus. In January 2006, it was announced that it would close in 2007, taking with it a large part of the city's tax revenue. There are already plans for redevelopment, however, envisioning something like the successful Atlantic Station in adjacent Atlanta, but with fast access to the nearby Atlanta Airport. It is home to the Dwarf House - the first Chick-fil-A restaurant.
Places to see: South Fulton Ave. and North Fulton Ave. run side-by-side down either side of the railroad tracks in town; visit little restaurants along the way and explore unique shops. Highlights include the Depot Museum (an eclectic collection from the town), Cafe at the Corner (a great little French spot), and Perk Place Coffee. If you want a place to stay, try the Maison La Vigne Bed & Breakfast.
