Georgia's capital was originally Milledgeville which is much more centrally located in the state. A lot of people think Atlanta is central GA but it's not, it's in the NW part of the state. Also, others have already noted, Atlanta is not on a body of water. Atlanta had an original name of "Terminus", as it was at the crossroads of rail tracks.

The nation's two largest metropolitan areas that are not considered to be on water are 1) the Dallas Ft Worth Metroplex and 2) Metro Atlanta.

Another way to say it is Dallas is the nation's largest inland metropolitan area and Atlanta is the nation's second largest inland metropolitan area.
