You don't have to take a Delta flight to send Atlanta flowers.
The area now known as Atlanta Georgia was once a Native American village called Standing Peachtree. This helps to explain why there are more than 70 streets in the city with Peachtree making up a part of their name. There is also the annual Peachtree road race, Peachtree Central Station, and the Westin Peachtree hotel.
Atlanta Georgia is home to the world’s busiest airport with over 900,000 flights per year, serving 88 million passengers. With these statistics it’s easy to see why Atlanta plays host to 37 million tourists annually. From golfing to galleries, Atlanta has plenty to see and do for each of its visitors. With the civil rights movement getting its start in the city, Atlanta is home the only museum dedicated solely to Martin Luther King Jr. The Georgia Aquarium is in Atlanta and is the worlds’ largest of its kind. The city is also the birthplace of Coca Cola and the location of a museum that bills itself as "the only place where you can explore the complete story—past, present and future—of the world's best-known brand". The World of Coca Cola is a 60,000 square foot facility that houses more than 12,000 Coca Cola artifacts from around the world.
The month of August is Independent film month which brings several tourists in the film making industry to the city. Atlanta also hosts the annual Southeastern Flower Show which is a huge draw for Atlanta flower enthusiasts. The show brings together Atlanta florists, growers, distributors, Atlanta flower wholesalers, and other industry folk for a convention that covers the ins and outs of the floriculture business. It isn’t just Atlanta flower shop owners that attend the show. This event is so big that it draws in shop owners from surrounding areas as well as out of state. Atlanta flower designers also attend the event as patrons and speakers as the shows organizers will often have local Atlanta flower designers giving workshops in flower design. With blooms of all breeds, the colorful show is presented by the Southeastern Horticultural Society and has been running for the past 25 years. In addition to showcasing all things floral, the show also holds competitions in flower and garden design, as well as flower photography. For Atlanta flower shop owners the show provides an opportunity to keep up with the latest industry trends. The Cobb Galleria Convention Center is a popular location for conventions and trade shows of all industries but none make the center look or smell quite as beautiful as the South-eastern Flower show - all thanks to the beauty of Atlanta flowers.
