So you want to plan a trip with the guys but usually you leave all the planning to your wife. We know. That's why we did most of the planning for you. We kept it simple. We kept it manly. Your destination is Dunwoody, GA. Located 10 miles above Atlanta, you're in perfect proximity to the city's attractions while still being able to take in everything Outside Atlanta has to offer. Use this guide to plan a man-cation for you and the boys. By the end of the weekend, the boys will think you are the man.
Every getaway begins the moment you check into your hotel. We have seven great ones for you to choose from, and all of them are in walking distance to more restaurants, shopping, and things to do than you and the bros could possibly imagine. Shuttle service is available too, so you can get where you're going even quicker. Check in so your weekend can get underway because the boys are officially back in town.
The Watch ESPN app is great and all when your wife is hogging the TV, but that's not the way sports are meant to be consumed. Why watch the action in front of your TV when you can be right there in front of the play itself? If you're already in Dunwoody, then you're already in great field position. Thanks to MARTA, you're just a quick ride away from a day trip to see your favorite team or learn some college football history. Do your pre-game tailgating here, get to the ball game, and then come back for a postgame recap at any of our local bars before bed. Let this game plan be your guide.
Car Enthusiasts! Did you know Dunwoody is home to the largest monthly car show in North America? Plan your getaway around the first Sunday of the month to see over 2500 cars with 10,000 close friends at the Caffeine and Octane Car Show. It's the perfect Sunday morning pit stop before heading home.
Every man should be able to eat like a king when they're away from home. And what is the king of all meals? A big, juicy, mouth-watering steak grilled to perfection. There's no shortage of steakhouses here in Dunwoody. Throw on a blazer, shine your shoes, and walk into any of them with the guys. If you look good, then you feel good, which means you eat good. Take your pick from the list of steakhouses below, or you can keep things a little more casual with some old-fashioned BBQ 'n Burgers.
Nothing goes better with good talks and great laughs than a cold brew. These are some of the best days with the best group of men any guy could ask for. Stay out late and have a few drinks. You can walk it off back to the hotel, or call an Uber. This your worry-free weekend. Make the most of it at any of the following bars and restaurants:
It's going back to the basics and playing outside. It's putting away the gadgets and going into the woods for some relaxation and recreation. There are more than 170 acres of green space in Dunwoody complete with everything from zip lining to hammock gardens. Go for a hike at the Dunwoody Nature Center, shoot some hoops at the Park at Pernoshal Court, or treat your four-legged best friend to a good time at the dog park at Brook Run. You can venture out into Atlanta's backyard to climb Stone Mountain, or cover just as much ground in our own backyard.
Routine Isn't Always Bad
Plan your guys' getaway in Dunwoody and bond with the bros just 10 miles outside Atlanta. Then repeat as often as you like, because getaways aren't just for girlfriends.
