    Escape to the Atlanta Botanical Garden

    February 04

    Walking through over 30 acres of stunning outdoor gardens and delicately crafted wonders might make you forget that you’re only miles away from bustling Downtown Atlanta. With spring right around the corner, there is no better time to take in the beauty of mother nature and see for yourself why the Atlanta Botanical Garden is a world-renowned destination.

    Through April 7, floral enthusiasts will love the Orchid Daze event that features thousands of orchids from around the world and award-winning photography to match. Families can spend hours in the interactive Children’s Gardens where kids of all ages can both learn from experts and play their hearts out. There are even beekeeping classes for the more adventurous! The gardens are open Tuesday - Sunday until 5:00 pm in March, and until 7:00 pm April - October, so there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy this unique experience.

    All Things Irish

    January 07

    You don’t have to be Irish to join in the revelry of St. Patrick’s Day in Atlanta. Deck out in head-to-toe green and head to Peachtree Street for one of the South’s oldest St. Patty’s Day parades. Offering G-rated fun for the whole family, this colorful Saturday spectacle features music, Irish step dancing, extravagant floats, and the world-famous Clydesdales (not to mention the world’s largest Irish walking flag). For those looking to put a healthy spin on St. Patrick’s Day, there’s a Shamrock ‘N Roll Road Race at Atlantic Station. The 5K and 10K routes welcome runners and walkers, even those with strollers or sweet furry friends. Later on, you can bet there will be plenty of opportunities to drink green beer and listen to live tunes in nearby Buckhead bars and restaurants.
