15 Best Weekend Getaways from Atlanta (within a 4 hour flight)Jordan Hinsch

Residents of Atlanta are in a unique position geographically and logistically. Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airport (ATL) serves more airports than any other city in the US. If you have a hard-to-reach destination, you can probably get there on a direct flight from ATL.

With a vast array of short domestic destinations, there are also many international destinations within reach. Here are some weekend getaway ideas for locals in the Atlanta area within a 4 hour flight. More importantly, these trips are all possible without having to request PTO (for you M-F 9-5'ers), it just depends what you want to do at your destination.

Bear in Mind: When travelling internationally as of June 14th, 2021, you're required to present a negative Covid-19 PCR test upon return to the United States. This is on top of any restrictions in the country you are visiting. Since the rules are changing frequently, I'll leave that out. Instead, I'll include a link to the embassy site where you can find the latest information.
