Taking a cab in Atlanta is a fairly harrowing experience. Unlike other major cities, you cannot expect to flag down a cab anywhere in town (even in the heart of the central business district). You will be able to find a cab at any major downtown hotel or at the airport. Other than that, you will have to call to be picked up. Consider bringing your own map if you are going anywhere other than another major downtown hotel or the airport (or maybe one of the large shopping malls). And be forewarned, many of Atlanta's cabbies have relatively poor English language skills.
