Destination guide

A place of outdoor adventure in Georgia

Just outside the grand old city of Atlanta, you’ll find Dunwoody vacation rentals that will suit all tastes – whether you’re after a rustic, ranch-style abode, or something a little more sleek and modern which you can turn into a home away from home. Dunwoody itself is far more than just a base for seeing Atlanta, thanks to its plethora of places to go shopping, not to mention the charming Colonial Williamsburg architecture and big local events such as the annual Butterfly Festival which entrances visitors of all ages. Perhaps the biggest perk of all is how close you’ll be to the great outdoors.

Things to do

Shopping and sightseeing in Dunwoody

While the old timey architecture of some Dunwoody vacation rentals can themselves evoke the past, you can get a taste of yet more history and heritage when you go for an amble by local landmarks like the Dunwoody Farmhouse. This was built over a century ago and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Meanwhile, if you’re itching to do some shopping, try the upscale Perimeter Mall, where you can also treat yourself to juicy burgers and fresh sushi. And then, of course, there are the myriad attractions in nearby Atlanta, from the World of Coca-Cola to the birthplace of Martin Luther King Jr.

Activities

Escape to nature in Dunwoody

No matter which of the Dunwoody vacation rentals takes your fancy, you’ll want to bring some comfy shoes to this neck of the woods. Dunwoody Nature Center is one of the great attractions of the area, and when you wander through the open woods you’ll be met by tree swings, babbling waterways, and even a real teepee. Head for Wildcat Creek and you can leave behind the urban stresses and breathe in fresh country air while keeping an eye out for birds of prey and other pretty wildlife. If all of that is just too relaxing, you can liven things up by riding the zip lines at Treetop Quest, while over at Brook Run Park you can explore over 100 acres of fields, trails and children’s playgrounds.

Weather

Fun during all seasons in Dunwoody

Dunwoody is an all-year-round sort of destination. After all, it’s never not a great time to get stuck into the family-friendly attractions of nearby Atlanta. That said, areas like Dunwoody Nature Center lend themselves to spring and fall excursions, when the weather is fine but not too hot for hiking. Bear in mind that summer does draw in the crowds over in Atlanta, and vacation rentals do get snapped up, so it’s well worth booking in advance if you have a hankering for the Georgia sun. Don’t worry about the soaring temperatures, as part of the pleasure lies in lazy, balmy nights, dining, and drinking al fresco.

Natural features

A quaint slice of Georgia

Located just to the north of Atlanta, Dunwoody is peppered with nuggets of nature, which may go some way to explaining why it throws a famous Butterfly Festival every year. Wildlife is everywhere, if you keep your eyes peeled, with owls, snapping turtles, and red-tailed hawks all to be spied in Dunwoody Nature Center. North of Dunwoody, you’ll also find the long, meandering Chattahoochee River, which is also alive with animals and is a popular fishing destination.
