Anyway, Gone With the Wind was a phenomenal success and received rave reviews. After breaking publishing records with one million copies sold within six months at the steep price of $3 a copy, the novel was awarded the Pulitzer Prize, and has since been translated into over forty languages, and remains one of the best-selling novels of all time.
Well, now, you can have your own little Gone With the Wind adventure here in Georgia and get a little relaxation along with it! Clayton County Convention & Visitors Bureau's just introduced the newest girlfriend getaway package: "Gone With The Girls.".
Located just 15 miles south of Atlanta, Clayton County invites girlfriends to relax and rejuvenate over a day of luxurious southern belle style pampering including a tour of Gone With The Wind themed sites, visit to the Road To Tara Museum and indulgent treatment at Scarlett's Retreat Day Spa. "Gone With The Girls" will begin with a mini-bus tour showcasing historic Jonesboro, Georgia’s Gone With The Wind sites including a visit to the internationally known Road To Tara Museum.
Following a visit to the museum, girlfriends can travel 15 miles south to the quaint town of McDonough, Georgia to bask in an afternoon of luxurious pampering at Scarlett's Retreat Day Spa. A choice between five different innovative spa treatment packages will be available for each lady and will leave the group glowing and invigorated. Treatment packages include a mini facial, eye zone wrap and make-up application; mini facial, eye zone wrap and spa pedicure; mini facial and mint julep pedicure; mini facial and mini massage; or mini massage and mint julep pedicure.
The best part to me is that the "Gone With The Girls" getaway begins at only $85 per person and is typically a starting value of $105. Umm. Thats an awesome deal guys. I mean, something like that in Atlanta would easily be double that. Plus, day trip! Even if you don't live in the Atlanta area and are coming for a vacation or a stop through on a long flight. Definitely worth looking into. The Road to Tara museum alone is an amazing experience!
So, if you are in Atlanta or headed to Atlanta or a fan of Gone With the Wind like I am, check it out. You get an awesome history lesson, a guided tour of an amazing and beautiful city plus a visit to a spa for less than you would spend on a massage at one of those fancy places downtown. You can't beat it.
*Tours and spa packages are based on groups of 2-10 and advanced reservations are required to ensure availability. Contact the Clayton County Convention & Visitors Bureau at 800.662.7829 to book your girlfriend getaway.
