亚特兰大是美国东南部的主要交通枢纽,这里有高速公路、铁路和空运,而亚特兰大哈茨菲尔德-杰克逊国际机场自1998年以来是全世界最繁忙的机场。
 
The city is situated among the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, and at 1,050 feet (320 m) above mean sea level, Atlanta has the highest elevation of major cities east of the Mississippi River. Atlanta straddles the Eastern Continental Divide, such that rainwater that falls on the south and east side of the divide flows into the Atlantic Ocean, while rainwater on the north and west side of the divide flows into the Guff of Mexico. Atlanta sits atop a ridge south of the Chattahoochee River, which is part of the ACF River Basin. Located at the far northwestern edge of the city, much of the river's natural habitat is preserved, in part by the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area.
 
亚特兰大位于阿巴拉契亚山脉的山麓丘陵地带,海拔1050英尺(320米)。这座城市是密西西比河东部海拔最高的大城市。亚特兰大横跨东部大陆分水岭,分水岭南部和东部的降水会流向大西洋,而北部和西部的降水则流向墨西哥湾。亚特兰大坐落在香特胡奇河南部的山脊上,而这里是阿巴拉契科拉-查特胡奇一弗林特河流域的一部分。在某种程度上,查特胡奇河国家休闲区使城市西北边缘的大部分河流自然栖息地都得到了保存。
 
Typical of the Southeastern U.S., Atlanta receives abundant rainfall that is relatively evenly distributed throughout the year, though spring and early fall are markedly drier. The average annual rainfall is 50.2 inches (12.8 cm), while snowfall s typically light at around 2.1 inches(5.3 cm) per year. The heaviest single snowfall occurred on January 23, 1940, with around 10 inches (25 cm) of snow. However ice storms usually cause more nuisance than snowfall does, the most severe of such storms occurring on January 7, 1973 and January 92011. Tornadoes are rare in the city itself, though twisters such as the March 15, 2008 EF2 tornado damaged prominent structures in downtown Atlanta.
