If I visit a place that offers Afternoon Tea, I’ll clear my schedule to indulge, particularly when they’re able to accommodate my gluten-allergy and give pescatarian-friendly options, like Afternoon Tea at Astor Court inside St. Regis Atlanta in beautiful Atlanta, Georgia. Maybe it’s because while attending the University of Michigan, I resided within the all-girls dormitory Martha Cook where we had weekly afternoon tea, or that every place does it in its own special way. Still, I never get tired of afternoon tea. Afternoon Tea at Astor Court was among the loveliest and most delicious afternoon teas I’ve encountered.
Chai Yo Modern Thai is one of those rare restaurants that made me feel something from the moment I entered the building. A combination of excitement, intrigue, and anticipation, the decor was as beautiful as the food, and the staff were so kind and helpful. This meal was a highlight of our time in Atlanta, Georgia, and the quality of the food, the dedication to culinary perfection, and the respect shown to diners through each plate we were served solidified this as some of the very best Thai food I’ve ever had.
Our visit to Atlanta, Georgia, was my first time in the state as an adult. I haven’t spent much time in the Southern United States, but every time I visit, I’m reminded of how friendly everyone is and how incredible the food is. There’s so much to eat, see, and do in Atlanta, particularly for those with more refined palates, which is why I hope my Atlanta luxury travel guide helps you make the most of your visit to Georgia’s capital.
Not only is Atlanta Botanical Garden the loveliest place in all of Atlanta for those like me, who love nature dearly, but it’s also a beacon of hope in a world plagued by environmental disasters, pollution, and a lack of scientific understanding. Equal parts research & conservation facility and pleasure garden, Atlanta Botanical Garden is the perfect place to get away from the hustle and bustle of downtown while learning about and supporting the Southeastern Center for Conservation’s mission, “To develop and maintain plant collections for display, education, conservation, research, and enjoyment.”
I love pretty dresses, particularly when they’re pink with a floral print. It’s even better when they’re sustainably handmade of organic cotton! This Monsoon & Beyond Dress is precisely that. This soft, easy-to-wear dress with full sleeves and an asymmetrical scoop hem is something I wore on our recent visit to Atlanta, GA, during our tour of the Atlanta Botanical Garden. I received many compliments on it, ranging from a Southern bell to a woodland fairy princess, the latter of which is essentially the best compliment I could have ever received!
It’s no secret that I simply adore Asian food. From Japanese and Thai food to Indian, Korean, and Malaysian, it’s all SO delicious, and I particularly love that so much of it is (or can be) gluten-free and pescatarian-friendly. That’s why whenever I travel, I try to find unique and authentic Asian restaurants like OSHA Thai Sushi Galleria in Atlanta, GA. Their inspiration comes from Thai and Japanese cuisine, but the owners (one is a tattoo artist by trade!) put a very artistic spin on their creations and the hand-drawn wall art in the restaurant. Read on to learn more about why we loved our meal here so much!
During our wonderful week in Atlanta, GA, we stayed at St. Regis Atlanta and couldn’t resist checking out their world-famous spa. Complete with a Himalayan salt room, steam sauna, relaxation room, eucalyptus showers, and plenty of space to recharge, relax, and be restored. We had a phenomenal morning here. If you’re an Atlanta local or looking for things to do during your visit to The Big Peach, be sure to set aside time to be rejuvenated at The Spa at St. Regis Atlanta.
‘Tucked away, not far away’ is how Canoe restaurant’s website describes this gorgeous Atlanta, Georgia restaurant, and I believe that’s perfectly apt. Nestled along the Chattahoochee River, this restaurant feels like an escape to the woodlands in the most romantic way, with an emphasis on fine dining, of course. Here we enjoyed a beautiful meal along the river, fantastic conversation, and a wonderful escape from the big city feeling of Atlanta without needing to drive more than 15 minutes from our hotel. Read on to discover why people travel from all over the southern United States to visit this fantastic, award-winning eatery.
