Sights of the Southeast: Driving Tour

 

With the existing restrictions on international travel, this summer is the perfect time to explore a little closer to home. The city of Atlanta is a perfect hub for exploring the beautiful region of the American Southeast! A few of The Luxury Travel Agency’s favourite highlights to consider:

• Starting in Atlanta, The St. Regis Atlanta is the perfect base from which to start or end your trip. Located in the district of Buckhead (the address for luxury in the city), The St. Regis shines with a distinctive Southern elegance and contemporary zest for the finer things in life. The world-renowned St. Regis Butler Service can provide packing and unpacking services, garment pressing, and even deliver your morning coffee – complimentary to all guests.

• About ninety minutes east of Atlanta, you’ll find The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee. A glorious example of lakeside luxury, this property seems a world away from the bustle of the city; golfers will adore the five championship-level courses, not far from esteemed Augusta National. If golf’s not your thing, a long list of spa treatments might do the trick – and watching the sunset from the patio of your private lakefront cottage is something universally loved.

• After some lakeside relaxation, it’s time to strike for the coast! A little under four hours of driving brings you to Charleston, one of America’s oldest cities that recently enjoyed a four-year streak as the “No. 1 City in the US & Canada” in Travel + Leisure magazine. Beautifully preserved coastal architecture stands as a backdrop to a constantly evolving culinary scene that enchants and delights all who visit. The Grand Bohemian Hotel Charleston is a perfect representative of this style; its soft white façade opens onto an art atrium, and the rooftop patio is the best place to end your day – or start your night!

• Two hours south, along the inland waterways of the Atlantic, you’ll come to Savannah, also known as the “Hostess City of the South”. The oldest city in Georgia, Savannah is renowned for its beauty and unparalleled charm. Cobblestone streets, huge oaks draped in hanging Spanish moss, historic churches, and even the wide sandy beaches of nearby Tybee Island provide a romantic atmosphere that is nearly unmatched throughout the country. Stay at the Perry Lane Hotel, a property that offers a refreshing, modern take on the famed “Southern Hospitality” that visitors return for year after year.
