Atlanta Travel Diary

Anyone else have the travel bug? I just got back from a work trip to Atlanta, Georgia and I really got the bug to start traveling again. Going to new cities is so much fun! It is like you get to explore a whole new world with new people and new sites to see.

Atlanta is a super fun place for me to travel to. Not only does my best friend live there, but there is so much to do! Literally… you have something to do all day, every day.

So needless to say, going to Atlanta even for just a couple days was a bunch of fun! Now I have been there before… many times actually and there is A LOT to do here. Even if you have been there a couple times. The city is MASSIVE and the traffic is crazy. So you are going to want to take all of that into consideration.
