Fun Activities in Atlanta With The Family This Summer

School’s out for summer! Teachers and students everywhere could not be happier, and while parents are excited for quality time with their kids, finding activities to fill the time can be stressful. Never fear! GSO is here to help with a list of fun things to do with kids in the Atlanta area this summer.

  1. Head Upstairs to The ROOF at Ponce City Market

Most Atlanta natives have visited Ponce, a historic building that’s been renovated into a thriving marketplace. However, fewer people know that the rooftop of the shopping center offers tons of boardwalk games, food, and even drinks for Mom and Dad!  

  1. Build a Great Day at the LEGOLAND Discovery Center Atlanta

If you need a fun trip for your future civil engineer, LEGOLAND Atlanta offers exciting attractions like an indoor play area, building sessions, movies, and even a mini replica of Atlanta made of LEGO bricks!

  1. Get Back to Basics at a Nature Center

If your child is more of the outdoorsy type, the Atlanta area offers several great parks and nature centers, such as the Dunwoody and Chattahoochee Nature Centers, the Smith Gilbert Gardens, Stone Mountain Park, and many, many more! These are great options for the whole family, and they’re fun for even the biggest homebody!

  1. Go on a Tiny Scavenger Hunt

For the quest-oriented kids, the Tiny Doors of Atlanta can provide a gratifying, pre-made scavenger hunt that promises a good time for the whole family. Atlanta is sprinkled with Tiny Doors in conspicuous places, and you can make a day of seeking them all out. Find a map of them here.

  1. Learn a Thing or Two at Fernbank

If your tiny scientist starts to get a little restless, take them to Fernbank Museum of Natural History! The museum offers dinosaurs, interactive exhibits, and tons of cool exhibits showcasing the natural history of Georgia.

  1. Catch a Game (And Maybe a Pop-Fly?)

Atlanta is home to some great professional sports teams. Whether your child is into soccer, baseball, or basketball, there’s an upcoming game for that! Most have affordable ticket options, and there’s nothing more exciting than the atmosphere in an exciting game!

  1. Make Some Fishy Friends at the Georgia Aquarium

The Georgia Aquarium is famous for a reason: the country’s largest aquarium features hundreds of species, live shows, and tons of learning experiences. If you have an ocean lover or a mermaid in the family, they will love a day taking in the sights of the sea!

  1. Catch Some Air at Six Flags

If you have a family of adrenaline junkies (or even some scaredy cats), there’s something here for everyone! From water rides to kiddie coasters to heart-pounding drops, Six Flags offers a fun day outside for the whole crew. There are rides and attractions for all ages, making this a perfect spot for kids and adults.

  1. See a Show at the Center for Puppetry Arts

While this one is geared towards the younger kids, there’s no reason mom and dad can’t have a great time here as well. The Center features a variety of shows with artfully crafted puppets and even workshops where kids can make their own!
