By Kate Gremillion Best Pla O u t d oo r A d v e n t u r Brunch spots and bars are great for weekend plans, but sometimes you just need to get outside and explore. Whether you’re looking to see the skyline, smell the roses, or break a sweat, we’ve got the perfect place for you. “Shoot the Hooch” They don’t call it ‘Hotlanta’ for nothing, so when it’s 100 degrees outside, floating down the Chattahoochee is the perfect way to spend the day. Grab your donut floatie, throw your favorite drinks in a cooler and head to the river. Oh, and don’t forget our lifejacket. Don’t worry -- you don’t have to wear it. #FashionFauxPas Stop + Smell the Roses Who doesn’t want to frolic in a garden of florals? Answer: no one. The Atlanta Botanical Gardens is a scenic place to spend a Saturday, and the lineup for Concerts in the Garden looks stellar. See the Skyline If you’re looking to recreate a moment from The Notebook, look no further. The SkyView Ferris Wheel gives you an unbeatable view of the city right from the middle of downtown. Want to spice up your skyline view? Opt for the VIP seats with Ferrari style seats. Sleepin’ in Stone Mountain If you’re looking for something that’s a little more off the beaten path, heading to a Yurt site at Stone Mountain Park might be your best bet for camping...or glamping. They have some great camping packages, and yes, there is AC. Biking the Beltline It’s Atlanta’s most talked-about sidewalk, but for a good reason. Connecting many of the cities favorite destinations, spending an afternoon walking or riding down the Beltline is a guaranteed win for outdoor outings. Reveal | Summer 2016 16
