The next ten days are about to get rowdy in the Chung house. My mother-in-law and brother-in-law are coming to visit from Hawaii. We haven’t seen them in three years…Since my oldest was only nine months old. Needless to say, this is a major event!
We are going to be spending a lot of time out and about in and around Atlanta over the next week, so here are a few of the places we’ll be visiting…
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport – Of course, we’ll be picking up the family from the airport! This is one of my favorite airports that I’ve been to (although Vermont airport has it going on…what with all the syrup and all). The underground train that carries passengers to the appropriate terminals is probably one of the coolest things ever, but there is also ample shopping and eating opportunities throughout to easily pass the hours. Plus, nobody does breakfast as well as Paschal’s Southern Cuisine. Whenever I’ve had to fly out of ATL, that’s where I’m eating breakfast. Guaranteed.
North Georgia Premium Outlets – Both mom and brother are shopping lovers. The first thing my brother-in-law wanted to know is if we had any good outlet malls around here. I’ll be honest, I haven’t gotten to visit this particular outlet mall, but I am all kinds of excited. They are having a huge Labor Day sale this weekend, so it’s definitely going to be a great trip. Who cares if it takes over an hour to get there?
The World of Coca-Cola – I haven’t gotten to visit the World of Coke in several years…not even since they completely renovated the place so I’m really excited about this one! Now, let me be clear. I’m still a Pepsi Girl all the way. It just tastes better – Bottom line. But, that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a good tourist activity when I see one. Even though I’ve lived in Metro Atlanta for the past three and a half years, I still haven’t seen a lot of the tourist attractions that bring people here. I want to change that.
Do you have any other suggestions for places we should see or things we should do while they are visiting? Keep in mind, mom is eight years old, so we can’t do all that much walking or anything too over the top.
