To the guides at Southern Beer Tours, every sip of local beer can be an exciting experience. "We enjoy highlighting the big guys, the smaller guys, and the start-ups," says the company's president. As guides point out on their tours, Georgia boasts more than 20 local breweries, and numerous other start-ups expected to yield fresh brews in the near future. The guides don't stick to one route or landscape, either; they constantly rotate the regions they tour in order to visit different breweries, pubs, and the region's naturally-occurring beer geysers.

Priscilla was born in Bristol, England in 1967. She toiled in public transportation until the 1980s, when she begrudgingly entered early retirement. She spent some of it in Liverpool, and some in Flitwick, but eventually succumbed to the promise of greener pastures in the U.S.—she moved to Kansas in 1993, and eventually settled in Tennessee.

Priscilla is the double-decker bus that Rufus, the owner of Nashville Double Decker, loads up with guests before touring the city. The idea for a bus-tour company came to him before his second deployment with the Tennessee Army National Guard on a visit to Nashville. He took a trolley tour that left him disappointed. The tour didn’t cross any of the city’s bridges, and he couldn’t enjoy some of Nashville’s best views thanks to the trolley’s closed top. So while Rufus was still overseas, he convinced a friend to drive Priscilla across the country from Washington, and now she shows guests the sites around Nashville.

Biplane Adventures, Inc. was founded in 1996, but its planes first flew in the 1940s serving in World War II. Soldiers originally sat in the two fully restored biplanes? open cockpits, training as naval cadets in the N3N-3 or pilots in the WACO UPF-7. Though the company?s vintage aircrafts are arguably its greatest asset?fewer than 100 of either of these biplanes remain reaching the skies today?owner and chief pilot Lee Kluger is pretty impressive, too. Lee has racked up more than 20,000 hours of flight experience over the past 32 years, all with a perfect safety record. He helms most of Biplane Adventures? flights, giving passengers a breezy aerial view of downtown Atlanta. They also float over landmarks including Red Top Mountain and Lake Allatona, which looks like a small puddle of tears of joy from above.

In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music.

The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.

If you’re looking to pull the kids away from the television screen this weekend but can’t stand the thought of visiting the same dull museums, consider a stop into the Wren’s Nest House Museum. One of Atlanta’s oldest museums, the former home of Joel Chandler Harris educates tykes on the life of the author of the famous Brer Rabbit stories. Every Saturday afternoon, one of several local readers thrills children by re-enacting one of Harris’s popular tales. The walls of the small home are lined with mementos from the author’s life, and the rich, green brocade and period furniture give a welcoming atmosphere that your children will warm to quickly. You may find yourself enchanted by the stories as well, and you’re guaranteed to come away with a new appreciation for the classic stories of Joel Chandler Harris.
