Two Days in Atlanta


Two Days in Atlanta by Tea in the Morning Too - family trip to Atlanta

One of the things I love about living near Nashville, TN is that there are so many places to visit within easy driving distance.

Recently we took a weekend road trip to Atlanta. We stayed in a hotel downtown so that we could walk most places. Traffic in Atlanta is crazy, as is parking!

Atlanta does not lack in family activities! We only had two days, so we prioritized what we wanted to see in a short period of time.  There's so much more that we could have seen/done if we had more time. 

Here's what we did:

Building a modern home in the country

Building a Modern Home in the Country by Tea in the Morning Too.

We've been driving all over middle Tennessee the past year looking for the perfect piece of property to purchase to build our new home on! We soon realized that "perfect" came with a really high price tag and in all reality, doesn't exist!

A Weekend at Evins Mill

When we were looking for a place near Nashville for a weekend get-a-way last June for just John and I, several suggested Evins Mill. It was only an hour away and had an outdoors theme, so we thought we would check it out. Now we can't wait to go back again!

A Walking Tour of the Cumberland Caverns

One thing we love about Tennessee is that there are lots of outdoor activity opportunities available all year long! The weather is usually perfect for one of the many options - hiking, biking, swimming, water and some snow sports, such as skiing or tubing, and much more! 

This summer we went caving! We loved it so much that we went back this winter. 

Day of the Dead at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens

Nashville has so many opportunities to expand your cultural horizon. As a homeschooling family, we love to look for opportunities to teach outside the books.

What better place to go and learn about other cultures than the botanical gardens??

Cheekwood Botanical Garden often host festive cultural events that appeal to a wide variety of ages.

We had a wonderful trip traveling by train through Europe this summer. Here are a few things we learned that we will incorporate into our next family trip to Europe - or anywhere else.

Take Aways:

Traveling is always fun, and a little adventurous when you're traveling together as a large family, but nothing feels so wonderful as your own bed when you're finally back home after two weeks away!
