Who doesn’t love a day trip? Although many of us day trip to Atlanta, not from, we love Virgin Atlantic’s view of the Classic City from the other side. We’ve got it all, they say, from good listening, fantastic eating and drinking, and enough shopping and scenery to wander all day.  On food they say… “If you’re looking for good food, you’ve come to the right place. Athens is awash in memorable meals from early mornings to late nights. Start your day off with breakfast at Mama’s Boy or Ike & Jane Café and Bakery, where the 20 or so daily house-made doughnuts come with a variety of toppings. For dinner, head to one of Chef Hugh Acheson’s restaurants: Five & Ten or The National. Both are great for date nights, as are The Branded Butcher (local and organic produce, pasture-raised meats and delicious charcuterie) and The Last Resort, an eatery combining a bohemian ambiance with contemporary Southern cooking. For a selection of vegetarian specialties that even meat eaters love, grab a table at The Grit.” Plan your getaway for this weekend here
