What are your short term goals? What are your long term goals? What were your New Year's Resolutions?

I'm here to tell you that all of these need to involve getting yourself to The Grounds of Alexandria. You must be thinking this place better be worth it and you're very right. Exhibit A:



It's truly what I imagine the Garden of Eden looked like before the snake came and justified why reptiles can't be trusted. It's the place you go when you need to instantly feel like you're in Narnia or another fantasy world where everything is beautiful and other-worldly. You cannot be mad at The Grounds. Those two don't go together. The only thing that is synonymous to The Grounds is joy, exhilaration, wonderment and separation anxiety to the tenth power.

The best (and only) place to grab a coffee after gaping at the beautiful scenery is the Soda Barn. This is the advisable sequence of events but feel free to revise it to your liking.

After grabbing your coffee, do not pass Go, do not collect $200. Go straight to the potting shed. When you get there and wonder, because you will - Yes, it's real.



There are signs all around The Grounds, so don't worry if you deviate from course.

The Potting Shed


All will be worthwhile when you get to The Potting Shed. Never have I ever seen a more beautiful place to eat, have a drink or just sit and soak up how beautiful the space is.

Everything at The Grounds is garden themed. The menu, the drinks, the food...so fresh, so visually appealing.

You can't go wrong at The Grounds because everything in there is so right.

Roses are not red


Thank God for science (pun intended)!



Even the ATM is welcoming! Just...re-evaluate your goals. Go to The Grounds.

I have been past this place a number of times and even went inside to have a look at the place. It was very cool to look at, somewhat unusual too but I have not gone to dine there yet.
