Planning a Memorial Day weekend escape from the city? Here are a few favorite destinations within driving distance of Atlanta.
• Within Georgia, Blue Ridge provides stunning lake and mountain views, perfect for a long holiday weekend tucked away from the crowds. And Savannah is a charming Southern escape where art, architecture, boutiques and ghost stories are all set under a veil of Spanish moss.
• In North Carolina, Asheville is consistently ranked as a top destination spot. While in town, be sure to visit the Biltmore Estate, America’s largest private mansion. More than a million visitors pass through its doors annually.
