    You're near Atlanta? Hell, drive four hours down to Savannah for a couple days. One of the most beautiful cities in America.

    If you wanna splurge, get a hotel on Tybee overlooking the ocean and, after shopping all day along the river, go get drunk off your ass at the crab place on the side of the road halfway between Tybee and Savannah. Helluva trip right there. 8)

    That's some good advice, right there.

    Oh, and re: Savannah ...

    Take a carriage ride in the evening (either around sunset, when it's beautiful, or in the dark, when it's creepy (in a good way)) ... Doesn't matter which one you go on, they're all entertaining (and informative, if you care). Took the "haunted Savannah" tour once with a group of, I dunno, like three other couples, and it was great fun. Savannah's got a ton of history.

    I love Savannah and I'll keep it open as an option, especially since a former boss works over there now. But I kind of wanted to go somewhere I hadn't been before and I've been there many times, including out to Tybee and I've stuffed myself silly at that crab place tucked out of the way between the two. Oh, and have you eaten at Mrs. Wilkes' Boardinghouse? Oh god, talking about stuffing yourself with Southern cooking!

    Uh, yeah, it kind of is. Canada Day is July 1.

    Get up here, Grrl. It's jazz festival time, plenty of free outdoor shows in addition to the indoor venues.
    Went out last night and watched the Neville Brothers with about 100,000 of my friends.
    Plenty more where that came from. Good weather coming. Nice and warm.
    And direct flights from Atlanta with Delta.

    Asheville's a great town. Just went up there a couple of weeks ago. Stayed at a really nice Bed & Breakfast (www.cumberlandfalls.com) that was walking distance from downtown. Did the Biltmore thing on Saturday (seems like they open up a new wing of the house every year) and just hung out downtown the rest of the time. Blue Ridge Parkway goes right by the city and Mount Mitchell is only a short distance away.

    Chattanooga's also a fun trip. Lots to do up there.

    And if you go to Savannah, stop by the Savannah College of Art and Design and say hi to some friends of mine.

    Let us know what you choose. Oh, and don't forget Branson, Mo. I hear they have an Olive Garden.
