Things to see and do with kids in Atlanta

Atlanta Kids Attractions

One of the most exciting cities in the United States, Atlanta is a great place for children on holiday to explore and enjoy. Steeped in a rich and diverse cultural and political history, kids can learn and discover while having a great time sightseeing - what more could a parent ask for?

Pack a picnic basket and blanket and head off to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens for a day of sunshine and fresh air, or for a slightly more active day, take the kids to the Six Flags Over Georgia Theme Park where plenty of fun and screams can be had enjoying the rides on offer. The Fernbank Science Center is a must for all inquiring minds and the wonderful outdoor trails to be enjoyed are great for kids of all ages, while the neighbouring Fernbank Museum of Natural History will simply amaze all who visit. Stone Mountain Park is must, where mountain trails abound, and after a day in the great outdoors, children will love the laser light show in the evening.

On quieter, days or when the weather is bad and outdoor activities with the kids is not an option, take the kids to one of the fantastic museums such as the Imagine It! Children's Museum of Atlanta where kids can crawl, paint, play and enjoy all the fascinating exhibits on display. Most of the shopping malls in Atlanta feature indoor playgrounds, but one of the favourite has to be HippoHopp Indoor Playground, where kids will have fun jumping, climbing and playing on inflatable equipment.
