That depends largely on where you’re going. Downtown Atlanta, about 8 miles from Atlanta, GA Airport (FTY-Fulton County), can be challenging to drive in. Make it easy on yourself by opting for something compact, fuel-efficient, and a cinch to handle. Keep in mind that Atlanta is an excellent base to explore many of the sandy shores in Georgia. If your escape is more about tearing down the open road, then you may prefer something with more trunk space and legroom. How about a full-size car or a standard SUV?
