Spring has finally descended upon ATL, and with spring of course comes wedding season. We all know what that means- Time for fabulous bachelorette and bridesmaid outings! What better way to celebrate a special occasion than to get out and enjoy our beautiful city with your best girls? Here are some suggestions for great seasonal, casual outings with the girls.
The Sweetwater Brewery is a must do for a fun, booze infused outing with the ladies. You can go on a free tour, but for $10 they will give you 6 tasting tickets and a Sweetwater pint glass. They offer tours Wednesday-Saturdays from 2:30-4:30. If the tour aspect does not interest you then this is a great casual spot to enjoy some true to Atlanta brews and just kick back with some friends. If you happen to be in Atlanta over 4/20 weekend then you can absolutely not miss out on Sweetwater’s 420 fest- their once a year outdoor festival with live music, tons of beer, and all kinds of fun for all. Check out the Sweetwater Brewery here. Cheers!
Braves Games are always a fun way to get the ladies together for a true to ATL outing. Whether you are a sports fan or not there is always fun to be had down at Turner Field. If not anything there will be plenty of fine baseball player eye candy to watch. You can get great discounts on group tickets which is perfect if you have a substantial amount of people going. On a personal recommendation I would suggest trying to attend a night game and buy some tickets in covered seating. It keeps the heat down and makes the game enjoyable for any kind of weather. Tailgating beforehand is a must do so pack up a cooler with your favorite cocktails and bring it on down to the South side of town. Braves games make for fantastic couples outings as well (if you decide that you want to invite the guys.) Check out pricing for package deals here . Go Braves!
The Dogwood Festival is a yearly Atlanta tradition. If you happen to be in Atl while this is going on (usually over Earth Day weekend-Same time as Sweetwater 420 Fest) Then add this to your list of Atlanta Must-Do’s. The Dogwood Festival offers tons of great artists, music, food, and events. A little something for everyone can easily be found at this yearly Atlanta staple. Check out the Dogwood Festival here.
The Atlanta Botanical Gardens make for a perfect spring outing. This year ABG is hosting Gourmet in May with tons of food demonstrations, classes, and activities including an edible garden (how cool?) If the food doesn’t suit your appetite then feel free to walk around and enjoy the beautiful gardens and all they have to offer. ABG is really a lovely place to spend a free afternoon. Grab your ladies and check it out. It is centrally located in Atlanta right on the Buckhead/Midtown border so you can plan a fun dinner/cocktail outing afterwards. ABG offers group rates for parties of 10 or more. Check out the Atlanta Botanical Gardens here.
Enjoy Spring and Party On!
