Three reasons to join the social club...

Reason #1: Our Members

Our most active members will tell you that one of the best reasons to join this club is its people. As of September 1, 2017 we had 310 members. Our club is unique in that most of our members are mid to late-career professionals. The ratio of single vs married is 50/50. Our members are smart, successful and interesting. They also like to have fun! Naturally, we like to explore. We immerse ourselves in Atlanta's culture, its history and its food! We are interested in our city's past, present and future. You should also know that our members care about Atlanta. We care about its people, their heritage and their well-being. This unique combination of adventure and compassion forms the basis of our club's mission, which is to have FUN and make a DIFFERENCE. If this resonates with you, there is a very good chance you will enjoy being a member of our club.

Reason #2: Event Access

Except for our Hikes & Walking Tours most of our events are for members only. Our event program revolves around six adventure themes: Arts & Entertainment + Community Service + Culinary + Education + Hikes & Walking Tours + Travel. If you look at our Adventure Calendar, you will see that each theme has its own calendar. Our event management system also allows you to view all events and past events.

If you look at our Membership Options you will see that we offer three levels of membership: Explorer + Epicurean and Magellan Club. The main difference has to do with the types of events each has access to. Explorer members have access to our Community Service events and our Hikes & Walking Tours. Epicurean members have access to all six event types but their primary interest is in our culinary events, which are eclectic and fun! 

If our thematic Adventure Program appeals to you, please join our club as an Epicurean or Magellan Club member.

Reason #3: Save Money!

  • In most cases, members do not pay for Hikes & Tours. Most of our culinary and educational events are also free of charge to members.
  • Non-members typically pay $20 - 40 per tour. They do not have access to our culinary and educational events.
  • You can also save money by obtaining a membership gift certificate from one of our existing members. See Membership Options for details.
