The Labor Day Holiday is almost here, sort of the last hurrah for Summer, before the days get shorter and Fall is upon us! Great time for that last road-trip. What makes a road-trip great?
1) Pick a city that is not far away – four hours or less
2) Go lean – pick a city that won’t break the bank
3) Don’t plan every second of the trip – leave time to just wander and discover something special
4) Get a map, GPS can be unreliable
5)Check your tire pressure – low tires use more gas
So where are you going? Well if you’re close by Atlanta is a great getaway spot for a 3-day weekend. I’ve curated some of my favorite spots, new and old, around Atlanta. Atlanta is a mix of southern charm and city sophistication. Rich in history and culture, from the Civil War to the Civil Rights Movement, Atlanta has been at the center of historic moments in our country’s history. Did you know Atlanta is 177 years old, yep. There is a never-ending list of attractions, restaurants and shopping in Atlanta – you won’t be bored. So if you are near The A, do drop in and remember we only drink two things in Atlanta Coke or Sweet Tea! Welcome to The A!
What’s your favorite quick road-trip city?
Note: The official name of The Civil Rights Museum is The Center for Civil and Human Rights
