travelgirl magazine - escapes for women

Winter 2013/2014 Issue

We were excited to share the latest on our hometown with this issue's special section on Atlanta, including how this Georgia capital has become the Hollywood of the South. In the spirit of the season, Travelgirl brings you 5 hotels that pamper and pay it forward, from Kenya to Canada. Spend a day with us in Salt Lake City, take a culinary tour of North Carolina and check out amazing adventures for Valentine's Day for couples and singles. He wouldn't spill all his secrets, but we learned about some of the magic of David Copperfield, our cover guy. All this and more in the current issue of Travelgirl!

Janice McDonald at the Varsity in ATL

"Outsiders may raise an eyebrow as to why a diner is on my list of favorites, but the Varsity is an Atlanta tradition. Originally opened just a year before the Fox, it grew from a six-seat restaurant to the largest drive-in in the world. The menu has changed little since it first opened, and the Varsity's chilidogs and onion rings are the stuff legends are made of."

Spice Island Nutmeg, By Amanda Castleman

"Trade winds cool this seven-mile long island nation, just 12 degrees north of the equator. Here Amerindian traditions blend with African and European ones to produce a culture as rich and complex as Grenada's signature export: nutmeg."
