Upcoming Features in June: Omni Hotel at CNN Center | Atlanta Aquarium | Medieval Times Restaurant | Biltmore Coming in July: Chicago
We will be taking to the road this month as one of our writers, Tommy Ford, is making a special trip with family through Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia during the next few weeks. He will be highlighting several unique accommodations and attractions along the way expecially suited for the whole family.
His first stop will be the Medieval Times Restaurant at their just
opened location in Lawrenceville, Georgia (which was our hometime for
several years). If you have never been, it is a true experience, with
lively jousting on horses within an arena as you enjoy your meal.
After a night at the Omni at CNN Center, they will visit the new Atlanta Aquarium, then head north towards Jamestown and Colonial Williamsburg. On the way back, they will visit the Biltmore Mansion in Asheville, NC, which is a main attraction included with the NEW Go Blue Ridge Card (now available via Southpoint, which includes free shipping).
A great bargain, this card includes admission to over 25 mountain area attractions, including white water rafting (view our Nantahala River rafting trip notes and photo back 8 years ago during our cross-country trek). Also included is entry to the Biltmore, Chimney Rock Park, Lake Lure Tours, Asheville Historic Trolley Tour, Emerald Village, Ghost Town in the Sky, Oconaluftee Indian Village, Grandfather Mountain, and much more.
