Weekend Getaways in Atlanta


As much as I love helping people find homes in which to create cherished memories, I know full well that sometimes you just need to get out of the house to make some really good ones!

So to that end, I have compiled a list of highly-rated get-away destinations near Atlanta. I know this comes after Valentine’s day, but if you really fouled up that holiday with your loved one, this might get you out of the dog house. You can thank me later with a referral.
