BELTLINE TRAIL, PONCE CITY MARKET, AND BOTANICAL GARDEN MAKE THE ATL PERFECT FOR A VISIT
Stunning modern architecture, a vibrant LGBTQ+ scene in a gayborhood (Midtown), the incredible Botanical Garden in Piedmont Park, the new BeltLine Trail, old-growth forests in Fernbank Museum and Park, and the Ponce City Market (located in a former Sears Building) are among the many reasons to visit Atlanta. This region of 6 million is actually in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and is at 1,000 feet above sea level. You cannot beat the ATL (aka Atlanta, Georgia) for a long weekend or extended stay.

Secret Journeys’ most recent experience was centered on “L’Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped." The posthumous work of artists Christo and Jeanne-Claude was on view in Paris for 16 days, from 18 September to 3 October 2021. “It will be like a living object that will move in the wind and reflect the light. With its moving folds, the monument’s surface will become sensual. People will want to touch the Arc de Triomphe.”
