Day Trip to Atlanta

Neal Reid Design, 300 Peachtree Road

We took our first trip with the Middle Georgia Memory Makers on April 9. Since my birthday has been 3 days before, Dan thought it would be a nice birthday trip. The ride to Atlanta went fast when all I had to do was read or nap. We left Warner Robins at 8 a.m and picked up the guide in Atlanta.

We spend the morning driving around the Buckhead area of Atlanta. I have been in the commercial session for the ASAE convention years ago, but this was the first time we saw the residential area. The winding tree lined streets and lots hid large mansion like homes behind hedges, iron fences and gates. We discovered that this area was country back in the 1920s when the first homes were  built.

One of the famous architects, Neal Reid, designed many of the homes in Buckhead. It was a beautiful sunny day perfect for sightseeing.

After a buffet lunch at the famous Mary Mac’s Tea Room we were off on the motorcoach for sightseeing around the downtown and midtown areas. Our final stop was to see the famous stained glass windows at the Peachtree Christian Church.

We were home by 5 p.m. after a nice day of easy sightseeing.
