What we're about
The Travel Club is a social travel group for travel enthusiasts to explore some of the metropolitan areas and travel destinations that are within 5 to 6 hours of Atlanta, Georgia. Atlanta's location is ideal for day or overnight trips to nearby cities such as Charlotte, Charleston, Savannah, Jacksonville, Mobile, Birmingham, Nashville, Chattanooga, Knoxville, Asheville and resort towns like Gatlinburg, Pigeon Forge, Destin, Panama City, Myrtle Beach, and Hilton Head Island. The group is a spin-off of The Secret Get Out of Saint Louis Travel Club which takes monthly trips throughout the Midwest.
The purpose of the Travel Club is to facilitate travel by sharing travel expenses by carpooling to the destination, leaving early in the morning and returning to Atlanta late at night; thus, eliminating hotel expenses which is usually the most prohibitive cost of traveling. Although, some overnight trips may be planned, ideally we would like to minimize the cost for participants by returning the same day and keeping the travel cost to approximately $50 per person.
There is a lot to do and see in and around Georgia and the Southeast region. Trips may be planned around events or activities such as live music concerts, art and music festivals, sporting events, food fairs, and may include photography, dining out, sightseeing, swimming, walking, hiking, dancing, taking in a play or show at a local theater, bar hopping, tasting food and wine at local restaurants and wineries, drinking at the local pub or brewery, shopping at an antique shop or clothing store, checking out the night life at area nightclubs, unwinding at a comedy club, touring the city and sites of interest, and visiting local museums and other attractions such as zoos, aquariums, amusement parks, arenas, stadiums, and ballparks.
Are you ready to get out of Atlanta? We have several trips already planned! This could be your next fun weekend getaway or excursion. This is a great way to travel on a budget, to meet other travel enthusiasts, and to make new friends in a fun social setting while learning all about a city's landmarks, people, history, culture, art, and architecture. Our membership is composed of a diverse group of individuals that cover a wide range of ages and backgrounds.
