Best Way to Get to Know Atlanta – Bicycle Tours of Atlanta

Bicycle Tours of Atlanta

Looking for a great time in Atlanta where you get out into nature and see our fantastic city up close and personal? My good friend, Robyn Elliott is the owner of Bicycle Tours of Atlanta which runs three hour tours of the Intown Neighborhoods, historic sites and hidden jewels off the beaten path. One of my favorite places on the tour is Oakland Cemetery, a victorian garden cemetery and city park where Margaret Mitchell, Bobby Jones, and Civil War soldiers are buried.bicycle-tours-of-atlanta

I also love the murals around town. We have some great wall art and Robyn takes you there. Of course the tours explore Civil War and Civil Rights history of Atlanta. Robyn takes you through some of the coolest neighborhoods, including Inman Park and Cabbage Town.

If you are coming to Atlanta check out her site and see what the schedule is. They start early in the summer and will be running evening tours as the days are longer.

Getting ready to cook Paella at Barcelona Wine Bar.

One of my favorite restaurants in the neighborhood is Barcelona Wine Bar. They have a cozy ambiance, great wine list and delicious seasonal tapas. Recently they had a Paella cooking class that I went to with a foodie friend.

During the week we set out a continental breakfast spread with great coffee, teas, fresh berries, yummy breads, granola, yogurt, juice, hard-boiled eggs.On the weekends we actually cook to your order bacon, eggs, and omelets along with the afore mentioned spread.

Had to make some breakfast for myself after feeding guests. Yum!

New Flor Carpet at the Urban Oasis Bed and Breakfast. Very excited to get our new Flor Carpeting at the Urban Oasis Bed and Breakfast. Soothing blues.

Chairs #midcenturymodern #ilovecolor
My new Eames Shell Chairs are now assembled! They look just like the photoshopped pic I did. I love it when what is in my mind is manifested so precisely. With this much color in my place, I have to be careful adding to it.
