Ideal Family Hotel: Hilton Garden Inn Atlanta Downtown

It’s always scary picking a hotel sight-unseen.  Is it really a place you want to stay?  Are the rooms clean and spacious?  Is the property well-kept?  Are the staff members nice?  How about safety?  Is the parking well-lit and secure?  What about convenience?  How close is the hotel to what you are planning to do?

What’s a mom to do?  Well, it helps if you can find reviews, like this one.  ;)

It also helps to find maps of the area, so you can plot out everything in the area.

When Ariel and I started planning our quick getaway to Atlanta, I pored over everything I could find about the area surrounding our desired attractions.  We had decided that visiting the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola topped our list (aided by the fact that they are adjacent to one another) and that we’d also love to experience Zoo Atlanta.  To avoid driving in city traffic and paying parking fees at various places, I wanted to stay within walking distance of the Georgia Aquarium and the World of Coca-Cola.

There are several hotels in the surrounding Luckie-Marietta District–named for the streets bordering the ten block section of downtown (and an overwhelming number in the neighboring areas!).  We were excited to see the Olympic Park and Sky View were within walking distance of GA and WOCC.  The district also boasts shopping and dining opportunities galore.

But upon closer examination, one hotel stood out from all the rest:  Hilton Garden Inn Downtown Atlanta.  Why?  Because it is NEXT DOOR to the Georgia Aquarium!!  Can’t get much closer than that!!

30 Years of Celebrations at Medieval Times!

Medieval Times

Ariel and I were recent guests of the Medieval Times Castle at Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, where we enjoyed a delicious meal, entertaining jousting, and dramatic hand-to-hand combat amid festive holiday decor.

For those of you who haven’t experienced the grandeur that is Medieval Times, it’s dinner theatre with a spectacular twist:  you dine in a recreated medieval castle while watching gallant knights battle in a large arena.

That sounds pretty simplistic, but the entire operation is far from it.  This was my third experience at Medieval Times, but Ariel’s first.  So I was well aware of how much fun the event would be… and was anticipating how much she would love it!

And I was so right!
