While Atlanta has become a premier destination for all things party and getaways in the last few years, it may be nice to get out and discover a few new places. From the attractions to the mountains, rest and refuge are closer than you think. If you’re looking for a day trip from or around Atlanta, here are a few places to try.

Getaway was created to give people time, space, and permission to be off. Their tiny cabins in nature provide a break from the city, technology, and work, so that you can recharge and reconnect to who and what matters most. Getaway tiny cabins are located just a couple hours away from many major cities and give you a dose of life in the woods while remaining close and accessible. You can book a one bed or two bed cabin, with a view of the forest or stars. The cabins are equipped with everything you need to stay for a few days including a kitchenette, shower, and small desk. If you just need a quick break away from your norm, getaway should be one of the first places you try.

Just a three and a half – four hour drive (depending on who’s foot is on the gas) from Atlanta, Tybee Island is a beautiful place to retreat and still have a good time.

Of course, the beach is more fun in the summer, but you can enjoy the shops and restaurants when ever you go. Take a day trip or stay for a few days. Go alone or take your family.

You’ll leave enlightened and refreshed.
