Hotel Surrounded by Forest near Emory University
The Emory Inn sits on a 26-acre forest preserve on the campus of Emory University. In contrast to the natural woods surrounding it, the property pays homage to the French countryside with homey decor, making for a quiet retreat just 6 miles north of downtown Atlanta.
A peaceful atmosphere suffuses the Emory Inn’s 107 rooms, lounge, and onsite cafe. A courtyard garden surrounds the outdoor pool and whirlpool, while an indoor pool and health club sit nearby. A 1.5-mile hiking trail winds throughout the grounds. All stays at the inn come with a grab-and-go breakfast bag, including coffee, juice, and breakfast breads.
Atlanta: Urban Parks and Renowned Aquarium in Capital of the South
Named one of 50 Places of a Lifetime by National Geographic, Atlanta lies near the Chattahoochee River in Georgia's northwest region known for its famed trees: magnolias, pines, and dogwoods. These are especially prominent on the park-like campus of Emory University, one of the top 20 national universities according to U.S. News and World Report. Just a few minutes' walk from the hotel is Lullwater Park, site of the university president’s home and a number of walking trails that wind past a lake and shady trees.
Despite a metropolitan population of more than 5 million and what is considered the world's busiest airport by passenger count, Atlanta seems to always offer a relaxing escape. Stroll through the 185 acres of botanical gardens, hiking trails, and oaks at Piedmont Park, or study one of the country's largest Civil War exhibitions at the Atlanta History Center.
Kids enjoy visits to the Georgia Aquarium, located downtown at Centennial Olympic Park. Considered the world's largest aquarium with more than 8 million gallons of fresh and marine water and more than 100,000 animals, the aquarium is home to beluga whales, lionfish, whale sharks, bottlenose dolphins, and more.
