Atlanta Hartsfield Jackson International Airport is located in the town of College Park around 15 KM south of the city of Atlanta itself. The airport is well connected to the major road network around the state making it a good place to begin a tour of the deep south. It is around 300 miles from the Atlantic Coast town of Savannah, and 300 miles from the Florida Border if you are planning to tour along the gulf coast. The airport is one of the busiest in the US and is the home of Delta Airlines.
If you want to explore the traditional plantation houses around Georgia and the rest of the Deep South of the USA, then renting a car from Atlanta Airport is a good idea.

Atlanta Airport has 5 main Terminal buildings, but they have recently moved all of the car hire desks from the arrival area into a dedicated Rental Car Centre (RCC), which is accessed using the automated shuttle service from the Terminal building. The new suite has been designed to make picking up and dropping off your car as simple and quick as possible. You can book car hire at Atlanta Airport with Advantage, Alamo, Avis, Budget , Dollar, Enterprise , EZ Rentacar, Hertz, National, Thrifty, and Payless.
From Savannah and the south east of the state, you would follow the i404 as far as Macon where it becomes the 401. This road becomes route 75, and takes you direct to the northern end of the airport ? although you can get to the Terminal buildings along Route 285 if you turn left when you arrive at the south perimeter. From the centre of Atlanta, you should simply follow Route 85, which heads due south to the airport Terminal buildings.
