Edinburgh, Scotland is one of the more fascinating cities in Europe. The history of the city dates back hundreds, if not thousands of years, and much of it is now preserved as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is the seat of the Scottish Parliament, and home to such famous people as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert Louis Stevenson, Sean Connery, J.K. Rowling and even Tony Blair.
It is easy to pass up a chance to visit Edinburgh, as most tourists flock to nearby tourist destinations such as London and Ireland. While London is great, hotels in the city center are extremely expensive, as is the city in general. By comparison, there are many great deals available for hotels in Edinburgh city centre. Staying in the city center allow visitors to experience it's many museums, castles, and festivals. Such an experience is just not possible in today's hectic London.
Delta once had a non-stop flight from Atlanta and New York to Edinburgh, but it didn't last. Today, the only non-stop to Edinburgh from the United States is on Continental via Newark.
