25 Ideas for Your Atlanta Staycation

Part of what I love so much about traveling is exploring. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t necessarily have to leave your home state or city to explore. A staycation is a great option for anyone who wants to experience a different side of their hometown or who wants to take a trip but doesn’t have the time and/or resources to make it happen. In Atlanta, there are so many things that I haven’t done. Living in a city that has become a tourist destination has it’s advantages and this summer, I definitely want to get out and explore. This 4th of July weekend, I’m planning the ultimate Atlanta staycation. My husband and I are going to act like tourists in our hometown. To prepare, I’ve been doing my research to come up with the perfect staycation itinerary. Here are some amazing ideas for planning your very own Atlanta staycation! I hope to see you around this 4th of July weekend exploring your city like a tourist.
