Hmmm, staying home for Spring Break this year? Just don’t have enough time, motivation, or money to get you and the family to the lake or the beach?
Well, never fear my friend, as you live in Hotlanta. That’s right, Atlanta, GA, the epicenter of the south, home to professional sports teams, famous figures in history and a multitude of kid-friendly entertainment venues. So, you think you’ve done everything already? You’ve lived in Atlanta for a while and have a ‘been there, done that attitude’? Or are you thinking that the fun things are the expensive ones? Well, stick around as I’m about to help you with attitude adjustment. Our beautiful city has a few tricks up its sleeve for you during Spring Break 2017.
First, you can expel those monetary doubts by looking into purchasing an Atlanta City Pass which will save you over 40% on Atlanta’s top 5 attractions. Even if you’ve already been to one or two of these places, a return trip is warranted. The Atlanta City Pass is good for admissions to the Georgia Aquarium, CNN City Tour, World of Coca Cola, Zoo Atlanta and Fernbank Museum of Natural History or College Football Hall of Fame and the Chic-Fil-A Fan Experience. These attractions alone are enough to keep you and the kids busy for the entire week! Check out the above link for pricing and more information.
As if that wasn’t enough, there’s still more you can do. So, pack up the kids, hand out the Claritin (achoo!), and let’s get going for some fun in the sun! Stone Mountain Park is always a great family getaway. Spend your days hiking the mountain and exploring the rides while you relax in the evening on the lawn, watching this year’s new Lasershow. If that’s not quite your style, there’s another classic Atlanta attraction that will have you falling head over heels in love. It’s Six Flags over Georgia. The park is now open daily between April 1-9. There are some special spring break events going on like SIXSTREME BMX Stunt Show and the Super Hero Cape-A-Palooza.Spring Break
If all this sounds like fun, but you had a little quieter time in mind, you might consider the following: Free First Saturdays at the High Museum and Center for Puppetry Arts for Fulton County students, parents, etc. Also, Cinderella Fella is playing at the Alliance Theater. The most popular of all time, The 81st Atlanta Dogwood Festival can offer you fun in the sun while you shop, eat and listen to music all for a free admission at Piedmont Park. Also, there’s the Atlanta Beltline where you can run, walk, and skate your way into mental and physical fitness. There’s more, I’m sure, but I just don’t have enough room to tell you everything.

So, don’t be doomed just because you haven’t booked your beach vacation yet as there is plenty to keep the kids occupied. Don’t worry that you’ll be stuck inside when you know your children are determined to get out and enjoy the spring weather. Your very own city offers you a plethora of cultural and family activities of which to partake. You just have to do a little planning, hop in the car, and go……..
