Many U.S. cities have an iconic landmark that immediately connects you to that city. Some are more famous than others.
When we were in Seattle last year, we just got plain lucky to have a room that we just randomly booked that had a direct view of the Pike's Market Sign right across the street.
The other famous Seattle iconic landmark that identifies Seattle is the Space Needle. If you just look at a photo of the Space Needle, you know the location; Seattle.
This made me think about what landmark or location represents the city of Atlanta. There might be a few to disagree with me, I don't think that any one single building, structure or location in Atlanta stands out like the Space Needle in Seattle or the Statute of Liberty in New York. The one location that I believe is Atlanta's most photographed is located in Piedmont Park. The lake view from Piedmont Park with the city of Atlanta in the background is the one that best represents Atlanta. The photo from the lake stands out for its reflections of the city's structures. It's even more impressive in the fall with the beauty of the fall colors.
