After the kids are finished with school and me with work for Christmas break we decided to start an annual tradition to take a little last-minute getaway as a family.
Last year we visited Augusta, Georgia and it was so nice to spend time together with my little family before the hustle and bustle of Christmas that we decided to make it an annual tradition. This year our trip was to Sandy Springs, Georgia.
Sandy Springs, Georgia is a cute little town right outside the city of Atlanta. It’s a nice way to get a small-town feel and still be close to the city.
When we had to evacuate two years ago for Hurricane Florence, Sandy Springs is where we headed. Although at that time we didn’t get to experience much of the city because we weren’t very prepared and had two dogs with us! So I was excited to see what the town had to offer and enjoy the Christmas season with my family!
Plenty to do!
Sandy Springs offers a wide range of delicious restaurants, beautiful parks, and plenty to do! Everything is accessible and close to the action. I wrote about our amazing time at Santa’s Fantastical! I still can’t get over how amazing it was!
This locally owned cinema is my new favorite place to see a movie, and I’m pretty sure the girls would agree! After a month of begging, I finally decided to take the girls to see Frozen 2 while we were in town! The movie was amazing as well as the atmosphere! Luxury recliners with heated seats, a full bar, and a restaurant all while enjoying a movie! The girls enjoyed being able to have a full meal while watching the movie and of course I enjoyed having a beer!
Where to eat?
We love being able to try new places to eat and that is just what we did on this trip! I’m going to share some of our favorite places with you!
I have to admit I was a little nervous to take my pizza and chicken tender loving kids here but we all loved it! Everything was so fresh with so many healthy options and a kids menu that did not disappoint! My only complaint is that we don’t have one closer to us!
Beer and pizza? Yes, please! Do I really need to say anymore?? The pizza was delicious and the atmosphere was great. We all loved this place and almost went back the next night!
Oh my goodness this place was amazing as well! I’m so glad we all branched out and decided to try some new places! Friendly service and homemade meals made this another great place to eat if you are in the area!
There is an abundance of accommodations depending on what you are looking for and who you are traveling with! We stayed at The Westin Atlanta Perimeter North and it was absolutely gorgeous! The hotel is in a prime location, we were so close to everything making it easy to come and go.
Here is a peek into our suite! So big and perfect for traveling with tween’s with a king bed in a separate bedroom and a pull out sofa in the living area. The girls had their own space which was so nice!
Sandy Springs is everything you love about Greater Atlanta. The warm hospitality and big city moments making it a perfect place to visit with your family. We will definitely be back again to see more of this town.
A huge thank you to the Visit Sandy Springs for hosting us. Thank you for your generosity. We can’t wait to return! As always, all opinions are my own.
