A Getaway Guide to Places Around Atlanta

A Getaway Guide to Places Around Atlanta

My parents are coming to Atlanta in May (exciting!) and I am planning some day-trips for them, since I will be working during the week. If you are looking for day-trips / 2-day car trips from Atlanta, then you will enjoy this post.

Family visiting Atlanta / Família em Atlanta

(Português em itálico) Meus pais estão a caminho de Atlanta em Maio, e estou programando alguns passeios para eles se divertirem na região enquanto eu trabalho durante a semana. Se voce está em busca de passeios por aqui também, confira o post abaixo!

  • 1-Day Getaway | Day trips de um dia

The Ritz-Carlton Lake Oconee (77 miles from Atlanta, more below, in the 2-Day Getaway section):

If you can’t spend a full weekend in this beautiful hotel, my recommendation is that you leave Atlanta around 10AM, arriving in Lake Oconee approximately 11:30AM. You can enjoy beautiful lake views and have lunch at Gaby’s. In the photos below I am having lunch by the pool, because I was a guest there and pool is open for guests. If you are not spending the night, you can still dine at Gaby’s, but in the restaurant area (still with incredible lake views!). After having lunch, walk around the hotel, and seat by the lake. After enjoying a few hours there, you can drive back to Atlanta.

Se voce não puder passar uma noite neste lindo hotel, tente passar o dia. Voce pode estacionar, gratuitamente, e almoçar no Gaby’s, um dos restaurantes do hotel, que tem vista para o lago. Depois do almoço, ande pela propriedade, e sente para apreciar a vista! Se voce sair às 10 da manhã de Atlanta, chegará lá por volta do meio-dia.

Wolf Mountain Vineyards (70 miles from Atlanta)

roseallday

I visited Wolf Mountain Vineyards on a Sunday, for their Brunch. Since it was a birthday celebration, we also had the chance of joining a wine tasting, in a private area. Charlie and I really liked the food and the wine and I bought a bottle of their incredible sparkling Rose.

What to do: Sunday Brunch:. The cost is $35 per person plus tax and gratuity and wine is additional by the glass or bottle. Sundays at 12:30pm & 2:30pm. Reservations Required, call 706-867-9862.

Other activities: Winemaker's Tour & Wine Tasting

Spring/Summer Hours (Wine Tasting) - (March-August). Thursday - Saturday 11am-5pm. Sunday 12:30-5pm. Link here.

Se voce estiver buscando passar o dia em uma das vinícolas, recomendo a Wolf Mountains. Um dia bem gostoso para ir é aos Domingos, porque eles oferecem um brunch que custa $35 por pessoa + gratuity. Nós adoramos a comida. A vinícola também oferece degustação de vinhos e tours pela propriedade, e as informações estão no site deles (link acima). Reserva recomendada.

Chattanooga (2 hours from Atlanta) | Chattanooga - duas horas de Atlanta.

I have never been to Chattanooga, believe it or not! But my friend Fernanda has, and she shares some great tips in her blog. Link here.

Eu nunca fui para Chattanooga mas é um destino bem comum para day trips. Recomendo olhar o blog da minha amiga brasileira Fernanda, que mora aqui também. Ela conta tudo sobre a sua viagem e sobre o que fazer por lá. Link aqui.

Providence Canyon (2 hours and a half) | Providence Canyon - 2 horas e meia de Atlanta.

I have never been to Providence Canyon either, but Fernanda has and she also wrote a blog post here. Check it out! A Fernanda está dividindo mais sobre Providence Canyon no seu blog - aqui.

  • 2-Day Getaway | Viagem de uma noite/dois dias.

Lake Oconee (77 miles from Atlanta):

As I mentioned above, I spent one night at The Ritz-Carlton Lake Oconee, one of the most beautiful Ritz-Carlton hotels I have ever been. The guestroom lake views (if you are staying in a lake view room) are stunning.

Como falei acima, passei um final de semana no Ritz-Carlton em Lake Oconee. Veja as fotos abaixo. É um destino incrível, e apesar de ser um pouco mais caro vale super a pena.

  • 3-Day Getaway | Viagem de duas noites/tres dias

Asheville (198 miles from Atlanta)

Where to stay: As you probably know from my other posts, I work for Marriott International, so I usually stay in our hotel brands when I am travelling, especially when I found good employee discounts (perks of working in hospitality!). I stayed at the Renaissance and I highly recommend due to the proximity to downtown Asheville, where all the restaurants/main street are.

Eu fiquei no hotel Renaissance, pois trabalho para a Marriott e esse é um dos hotéis de nossa rede. A localização é excelente.

Where to eat: I love the restaurants of Chef Katie Button and her husband, Felix Meana - Cúrate (for dinner) and Button & Co Bagels (for breakfast). If you have a weekend there, I would definitely add these two places to your list! For a quick breakfast, I recommend High Five Coffee - they have great lattes!

Para comer, recomendo reservar o restaurante de tapas Cúrate (jantar). Durante o dia, recomendo ir ao The Inn on Biltmore Estate e tomar um vinho e comer um aperitivo (mais info abaixo). Para café da manhã, o Button & Co Bagels é uma ótima pedida, ou o High Five Coffee, para lattes e espresso.

Where to drink wine: The Inn on Biltmore Estate. Super charming hotel, but more on the expensive side - check their website for the latest information as far as rates. If you can not stay there, I highly recommend having a glass of Biltmore Estate wine and dessert - I had the dessert trio and I loved it - the Lobby Bar is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 midnight.

Se voce for conhecer o Biltmore Estate (umas das principais atrações de Asheville), recomendo tomar um vinho no hotel The Inn on Biltmore Estate. Olhe que linda a vista do bar!

What to do: a visit to Biltmore House and Gardens. The admission ticket’s price varies so the best place for you to find out how much you would be paying for the visit/tour (your admission includes a self-guided visit to Biltmore House) is their website. I highly recommend buying in advance! Check photos below - fall is a beautiful (and romantic!) time to visit.

Sem dúvida, o Biltmore Estate é imperdível. Compre o ticket antecipadamente pelo site, e deixe um bom tempo para a visita, pois voce acaba ficando por lá umas 2-3 horas, facilmente!
