Unexpected and Unexplored Treasures – Serenbe

Entrance to Serenbe Community
As a native Georgian who has lived for over 40 years in Atlanta, I thought I knew just about all of the scenic destinations in and around the city. I was pleasantly surprised to discover Serenbe, a gem of a sustainable community nestled in the Chattahoochee Hills of Palmetto, GA (about 30 minutes from the Atlanta Airport). A 1,000 acre “farm to table” community on preserved land, this quiet and beautiful destination is the perfect place to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life to enjoy the spectacular scenery, friendly residents and merchants and delicious restaurant and café cuisines.

When I first visited a few weeks ago, I started my day with a delicious iced coffee from the Blue-Eyed Daisy Bakeshop. Being a “foodie” who loves watching the Food Network Channel, what drew me in was the big banner in front of the bakeshop inviting everyone to tune in to the next episode of “Cupcake Wars” to watch them compete.  The pleasant young ladybehind the counter of course knew the outcome but was sworn to secrecy until after it aired. I’ve since watched the episode and learned they won, so it will give me a good reason to return soon to try one of their winning cupcakes!

After leaving the bakeshop, I spent the day walking around the community’s outdoor market (that sets up every Saturday morning), retail shops and galleries, and residential and farming neighborhoods, all providing me with some great photo opportunities.

I ended the afternoon with a delicious brunch outdoors at the Hill restaurant. I can’t wait to return because there is so much my camera and I didn’t get the chance to discover.

If you get the chance and haven’t been yet, go one weekend and you won’t be disappointed. If you’ve been I’d love it if you’d post to my blog and share what you particularly liked about Serenbe.

I’m always looking for “Unexpected and Unexplored Treasures,” no matter where they might be in this world (we all should have a bucket list of places to visit and I add to mine almost weekly), so if you’ve been someplace scenic that was particularly memorable to you, share it on my blog so my visitors, bloggers and I can go exploring too!

Till Next Time,
