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 cultural and political history, kids can learn and discover while having a great time sightseeing.

Pack a picnic basket and blanket and head off to the Atlanta Botanical Gardens for a day of sunshine and fresh air. For a slightly more active day, take the kids to the Six Flags Over Georgia Theme Park where plenty of thrills can be had enjoying the rides on offer.

The Fernbank Science Center is a must for all inquiring minds, with a wonderful outdoor trails to be enjoyed. Stone Mountain Park is must, where families can journey along the mountain trails and in the evening, enjoy the laser light show.

On quieter days visitors can go to museums such as the Children's Museum of Atlanta where kids can crawl, paint, 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.
