It’s officially springtime and you’re swiping through countless travel posts on Instagram. You start to feel a bit left out and want to plan a trip of your own but won’t be able to get away. Good news—we have the perfect staycation already planned for you!
A weekend-long staycation in Atlanta is ideal for those with busy work schedules, those with kids and other responsibilities, and those that don’t care to leave the great city of Atlanta (why would you want to, anyway?). Read on to discover our affordable, family-friendly, relaxing and entertaining itinerary for a staycation in Atlanta.
The Suite Life
When getting away for the weekend, it’s essential to have a comfortable, clean and affordable place to stay. Embassy Suites by Hilton provides all of that and more. Embassy Suites offers free made-to-order breakfast, WiFi, an indoor pool, a fitness center and an on-site restaurant with your stay.
It’s conveniently located walking distance from Atlantic Station’s many entertainment and food options. King suites start at $210 per night. Book soon before the rooms are sold out!
You had me at pizza
After checking in at Embassy Suites, head over to California Pizza Kitchen for dinner. CPK has a menu full of fresh, Cali-inspired pizzas, pastas, salads and more, with prices fit for families. There’s also an abundance of options on the kids’ menu for picky eaters.
Like a Kid in a Candy Store
Dessert after dinner is always a necessity, especially on vacation. Located a hop, skip and a jump away from CPK, IT’SUGAR will satisfy anyone’s sweet tooth. With spring in the air, we’re eyeing the Peeps. Don’t worry, calories don’t count on staycation!
Bowling and a Movie
Next up on the itinerary is a night full of entertainment! You’ll be blasted to the past when you enjoy a “glow in the dark” bowling night at Bowlero. There’s also an arcade full of old-school classics and new favorites. If you prefer to kick back and relax, enjoy a movie at Regal Cinemas. Feeling ambitious? Why not do both!
In the mood for a shopping spree? Well, you’re in the right place! Here at Atlantic Station, we have over 60 stores in the district. The Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United Team Store has the best gear to cheer your favorite team on. For those that need to do some spring shopping, head to Old Navy, where you can find a wide range of seasonal wardrobe essentials for every member of the family.
The Most Important Meal of the Day
Breakfast at Allora can’t be beat. Enjoy a mimosa out on the balcony while taking in the fresh spring air. You can try something new like Allora’s house specialty, the Creole Benedict, or stick to a traditional breakfast of eggs, potatoes, bacon or sausage and toast.
No matter how you “staycation,” we hope you’ll make Atlantic Station part of your itinerary. For more fun ways to spend a day in the district, click here!
