Beat the Atlanta Heat

Thursday, July 7th, 2016

SunCongratulations! If you are reading this, then you have successfully NOT melted from the blazing Atlanta temperatures that have come about the past few weeks. Summer is here and it is a hot one. Let us help you find some fun activities around town, so that you can avoid pooling into a puddle like a stick of butter left in the microwave for too long.

  1. Centennial Olympic Park’s Fountain of Rings:    One of Atlanta’s most iconic fountains. The fountain runs 4 times a day at 12:30, 3:30, 6:30 and 9:00 365 days a year. Music plays while the fountains shoot water from the ground and kids splash around with their friends. You can even go on their website and see what playlist they’ll be jamming to at each time. Oh, and don’t forget your sunscreen. http://www.centennialpark.com/index.php/things-to-do/fountain-of-rings
  2. College Football Hall of Fame:    If you haven’t been, can you really say you live in the south? Upon entering you are given an interactive badge. You are directed to a kiosk where you enter your information and pick your favorite college football team. While touring the facility, different exhibits will recognize your badge and which team you cheer for. You can head to the field and kick field goals, sit in a booth and announce some of college football’s greatest plays, get in front of the camera and do your best Lee Corso and Kirk Herbstreit, and the list goes on. If you aren’t a big football fan, no worries. There is a Chick-Fil-A attached to the building…and who doesn’t love CFA?
  3. Porsche Experience Center:    Ever wanted to feed your inner Ricky Bobby? Head south towards the airport to Porsche’s new facility where you can drive laps (very fast) around their 1.6 mile course, ride wildly with a professional driver, take an off-road trip in the Porsche Cayenne and anything else that will fuel your need for speed. Make a day of it and enjoy lunch at their on-site restaurant. https://www.porschedriving.com/experiences/driving-experiences

These are just a few of the MANY exciting things our great city has to offer. Whether you want to be inside or outside on the warm, sunny days, Atlanta has it all!

Summer Family Fun :: Best Atlanta Area Memberships

Tuesday, July 5th, 2016


Heather and ReidSchool is out for the summer and now many parents are trying to figure out how to keep their kids entertained for the next couple of months. Sure, there are the obvious options such as the neighborhood pool, going to the movie theater, bowling, etc., but how something a little more exciting that you could do as often as you like for one price? You should definitely check out some of the wonderful memberships available at many nearby Atlanta attractions. As a mom of two young children, here are a few of my favorites:

Zoo Atlanta– This is my absolute favorite membership. Maybe it’s because of all of the cute animals or maybe it brings up fond childhood memories, but either way I just love going with my family on an outing to the zoo. I also think that this is probably the best bang for your buck. It basically pays for itself in only one visit! Aside from looking at all of the awesome wildlife, the zoo also has a splash pad, train ride, carousel, and playground! Plenty of fun options for everyone! A zoo membership also gets you discounts on food and merchandise. More info here.

The Georgia Aquarium– Don’t want to be out in the Georgia heat? Then this is the one for you! Atlanta is home to the world’s largest aquarium- pretty cool! Not only do you get to see tons of awesome sea creatures, but this membership can also get you into some exciting behind the scenes activities. It may be a little pricier than other memberships and the parking certainly isn’t cheap, but it’s totally worth it! More info here.

Stone Mountain Park– For people who enjoy the outdoors (like my husband), this is the membership for you. An annual parking pass is only about $40 and grants you access to hike numerous trails, climb the mountain, or play on the main lawn. Plenty of activities to wear out the kiddos 🙂 You can also purchase a “Mountain Membership” which allows you to ride on the Scenic Railroad, take the cable cars up to the top of Stone Mountain, see a show at the 4-D theater, and so much more! Of course the laser show is always a big hit too! More info here.

These are just a few of the memberships available around Metro Atlanta. Other favorites include The Botanical Gardens, Fernbank Museum of Natural History, and The Children’s Museum. As we always say, The Peters Company loves to live, work, and PLAY in Atlanta. Let us help you find some fun things to do this summer!

Weekend Adventures :: Escape the City

Tuesday, June 28th, 2016

Portrait of couple of hikers in the countryside at summer

Ready to escape the city for a quick get-away? If you live ITP (Inside the perimeter) you are so close to some of Georgia’s greatest hidden treasures. Why travel far when you can hop on 85 North and be at a bed and breakfast on lake lanier, wine tasting or hiking in the great Georgia Mountains? Only an hour away.

Adventure Seekers::

If you are itching to get out into nature and not sure where to go, here are some great options.

 

Rent a boat on Lake Lanier::

Did you know you can rent your own boat, jet ski etc? Click here for a great company I recommend. You can check out different restaurants along the lake and even stop by the Lake Lanier Water Park for the kids. My all time favorite restaurant is Fish Tails. They have a great patio overlooking the marina and live bands.

Go hiking, fishing, biking or camping::

There are so many options to explore here. I will name two of my favorite. Fort Yargo State Park is located in my hometown, Winder, Georgia. The park offers a 260 acre lake, over 20 miles of hiking, running and biking trails, disc golf, tennis courts, basketball courts and playgrounds. This is a great day trip or overnight camping trip. If you want to go even further north, check out Tallulah Gorge State Park. The gorge has six cascading falls that you can hike to.

Indoor Gold and Gem Mining::

On a rainy day, you can go gold panning, gemstone mining and take a tour of a mine. Great activity for the kids. They will have a great time finding treasures and learning. Check out Consolidated Gold Mine in Dahlonega, GA.

Relaxing Weekend::

If you need a vacation and need to unwind, here are some relaxing and rejuvenating places to visit.

Wine Tasting and resort::

At Chateau Elan you can enjoy the spa, a round of golf, wine tasting and an amazing hotel. They offer a variety of dining options. They range from casual to intimate fine dining. My personal favorite is the spa. (Guys, if you are looking for a romantic getaway for your wife, this is the best option!)

Bed and Breakfast::

There are numerous options for Bed and Breakfast. A great website to use is BedandBreakfast.com. If you want to combine bed and breakfast near a winery, check out Wolf Mountain Vineyards and find a place in Dahlonega. Lake Lanier Islands also offers a variety of accommodations. They have a lodge, private villas, lake houses, and campgrounds. When looking for fun and unique places to stay, I personally use Airbnb.com.

Eat at the Dillard House::

If you are looking for comfort food, you have to check out the Dillard House. If you are looking for a family style lunch/dinner with generous portions of southern food, this is a must. This is an easy day trip. It is located very close to other wineries. They also offer accommodations.

As you can see, Georgia has several options so close to home. Please let me know if you ever have any questions at all or would like more recommendations for getaways in Northeast Georgia. Residing in the Northeast part of Atlanta, I can point you in the right direction. Give us a call at 404-419-3619!

Dog Friendly Restaurants in Atlanta

Thursday, June 23rd, 2016

BirdieWe recently welcomed a new addition to the Peters family, a 20 lb bird dog/beagle mix we rescued from our favorite animal rescue organization, Angels Among Us. We call her Byrdie because she reminds us of a bird dog and has shown tendencies to point at birds, mice, snakes, you name it. Although I really didn’t want a second puppy dog, Birdie has quickly become a formidable member of the fam.

Lesley and I work quite a bit so we end up going out to dinner a fair amount. Byrdie, like most puppies, suffers from a little separation anxiety. She hates it when we leave. Luckily in Atlanta, we have a host of great restaurants that we can take our four legged friends to.  Here are a few of our favorite outdoor dog friendly restaurant options in the metro Atlanta area:

 

Floataway Cafe -1123 Zonolite Rd NE, Atlanta, GA, US 30306, (404) 892-1414

The Floataway Cafe is one of the most expensive meals I’ve ever had in Atlanta. For a gourmet meal on the patio with your dog, you will be hard pressed to find finer dining than at Floataway. By the way, this is the sister restaurant to Bachanalia, which is widely considered the finest restaurant in the city.

4th and Swift – 621 N Ave NE, Atlanta, GA, US 30308, (678) 904-0160

This is a great Old 4th Ward “new American” foodie spot. Your dog will love the great heated patio and the amazing craft cocktails even better! Much like Floataway, you’re going to dine well here.

Neighbor’s Pub – 752-C N Highland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA, US 30306, (404) 872-5440

In my single days, this was the place to be in Virginia Highlands. Neighbor’s always has great, cold beer on tap with casual pub fare. Your dog belongs here with you, and they have one of the best patios in all of Atlanta.

Kaleidoscope – 1410 Dresden Drive, Suite 100, Atlanta, GA, US 30319, (404) 474-9600

I can’t tell you about my favorites without mentioning K-Pub. This is our family’s go-to spot for a great, casual dinner in our own Brookhaven neighborhood.  We walk here, and they have a killer patio. Your pup will have lots of friends here.

If you are dog folks like us, you can rest easy in Atlanta and have fun with your pet as well as enjoy some of the best food around! The Peters Company wants to help you and your furry friend find a home so give us a call today at 404-419-3619.

Is Atlanta A Fit City?

Tuesday, June 7th, 2016

Tpicture of a fitness classIn a 2015 study by the ACSM American Fitness Index, Atlanta (and surrounding areas) ranked 14th out of 50 cities. Not too shabby! Some of the areas we excelled in were: more park playgrounds, golf courses, recreation centers, swimming pools and tennis courts per capita.  We do, however, have some room for improvement. Atlanta has a high percentage of obese people, lower levels of physical education classes offered, and a lower percentage of people meeting the CDC aerobic activity guidelines.

With 2016 almost half over, how are your “New Year’s Resolutions” coming? If fitness was one of your goals (like mine!) you might find yourself starting to slack on your goals or maybe you gave up a long time ago! I urge you to not give up so easily! Re-energize and refresh your workouts by trying something new.

Yoga :: If you have never tried yoga or maybe gave it a ½ effort try one time, go give it another try. Not only is yoga good for the physical body, it can help you mentally and emotionally as well. Infinity Yoga has studios in Brookhaven, Dunwoody, and now in Old 4th Ward and offers a new student special of 30 days for $30.  You can’t beat it.

Crossfit :: I understand that many people are afraid of crossfit and I’ll agree it’s not for everyone. But everyone can do it. Finding a crossfit gym that suits you, is just like shopping for a new car.  You must test drive them.  Not every gym is the same and you just have to find the one that feels right for you.  The workouts can all be scaled to everyone’s fitness levels, ensuring you are getting a great workout, but not over doing it.  With workouts always changing in/out aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, cardio, and plyometrics, I promise you’ll never get bored! Most crossfit gyms will allow you to try a class for free, but call to double check before you go.  For more information about crossfit and a full list of Atlanta area gyms, click

Running :: Running isn’t my favorite thing, so I run “intervals”. Intervals are periods of time or distances that are ran faster (sprint) and then you return to your normal running pace.  You repeat this throughout your entire run.  I often change my intervals to keep them exciting.  For example: If I was running on the treadmill, I might run 3 min at a normal pace, then sprint for 1 min and repeat.  Or I might run a specific distance at speed 5, then speed 6, then speed 7, back to speed 5 and repeat.  Before you know it, your 3 miles (or whatever you’re running that day!) will be over! Looking for friends to run with? Check out The Atlanta Track Club.

If you’re looking for an area of town to live in that makes being fit and healthy super easy, call The Peters Company today at 404-419-3619.
