Things To Do Near Atlanta, GA
Once you're done having fun at the resort, take some time to explore the city. Located about an hour north of the lodge, Atlanta offers visitors an impressive variety of museums, shopping centers, and natural attractions to explore.
We suggest starting off with a quick trip to the historic district. The area contains some of the oldest architecture in the country. If you really want to step into the past, you can head over to one of the many eateries and enjoy afternoon tea, one of the best traditions in Georgia.
If you feel like getting out into nature, you can also take the family on a short road trip. Stone Mountain Park is located just 30 minutes out of the city. The state park features over 3,200 acres of natural beauty and outdoor recreational activities. It also contains Stone Mountain Lake, which is a great place to go fishing.
There are tons of lodging options around for nature lovers who want to turn their day trip into an overnight visit. There are also plenty of pet-friendly amenities located near the park for those traveling with four-legged friends.
Further outside of the city, you'll find even more amazing places to explore. Lake Oconee is definitely one to cross off the bucket list. You can waterski, canoe, or kayak around the area, or simply explore the many arts, culture, and historic attractions located around town. It also features some of Georgia's best resorts, including the Ritz-Carlton Reynolds Lake Oconee. Of course, you won't have any trouble finding a standard hotel if you're looking for more affordable options.
If you're willing to travel a further distance, we recommend spending some time in the North Georgia Mountains. Here, you'll find a number of tumbling waterfalls and freshwater lakes. There are plenty of trails for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, as well. Parents might want to sneak away to a winery resort while in the area—the region is home to 26 distinct wineries!
Golf enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that the area is home to a number of championship golf courses. The Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort is home to two of the most popular: the Stonemont Golf Course and the Lakemont Golf Course. You can find plenty of other world-class golf resorts just outside of the city, including the Chateau Elan, Barnsley Resort, Valhalla Resort, Callaway Resort, and the Brasstown Valley Resort Spa.
There's only so much you can do in one trip, so be sure to visit again soon to take in all the city has to offer. We also encourage our guests to explore the rest of the state. Georgia contains some amazing destinations, including Savannah, Jekyll Island, Dahlonega, and so many more.
