Whether you feel like taking a little drive to spend the weekend in a luxurious setting like The Ritz-Carlton at Reynolds Plantation or you are staying in town, here is our top five things to do for Memorial Day in Atlanta in 2017.

1 The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee

Escape for the weekend to the The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee. The luxury resort is located just seventy-five miles from Atlanta and offers just about anything from five championship golf courses, a luxurious 27,000 sq. ft. spa, indoor and outdoor pools, hiking, fishing and boating. Our favorite thing about this year? The BBQ Butler (the only Ritz-Carlton property to offer this. Savor the meats in the luxury of your own cottage or lake house.
