I have made a # of amazing friends along this blogging/ influencer journey who have as well have a great deal of travel advise. I wanted to create a “guest” forum where other travelling parents could share their advise & experiences.
Georgia: 6 Family Friendly Destinations
Written By: Beckie Tsao, published with permission by author.
As a parent to a rambunctious 2 year old I know how difficult it can be to travel and find family friendly activities. Thankfully if you should happen to find yourself traveling or visiting Georgia there are many wonderful places to go!
Here is a list of great family friendly places to visit in georgia whether you have a baby, toddler, or older child.
Stone mountain has everything. With their updated attractions and seasonal events you will always find something to do. Entrance to the park is $20 per car, this grants you entrance to most of the parks free attractions, such as hiking up the mountain to see the view or hanging out on the lawn in front of the mountain and seeing the laser show (check the websites schedule to make sure they are having one the night you visit)
Individual Attraction prices vary by what you’re trying to do. For example they have a summit skyride if you want to be taken to the top vs hike up.
Want to see an amazing view of downtown atlanta while also playing carnival games?! Well then Skyline park is for you and your family! (or just you as the park is 21+ on fridays and saturdays after 5pm) Admission is $8 for adults and $5 for children under 12 (children under 3 are free) Once inside..er..topside (as the park is on the roof of Ponce City Market) you will be able to play fun games and ride a few rides all ranging from $1-$3.
Perhaps the best kid friendly place there is in metro Atlanta! Entrance can range between $13-$19 depending on if you buy online and if the day you go is considered a peak day. I will say that the museum is definitely worth the price. They currently have a Daniel Tiger exhibit setup until January 6th, 2019 for all you Grr-ific neighbors out there!
Two hours south of Atlanta you’ll be welcomed to the heart of Georgia where southern charm is alive and well.
The Museum of Aviation is personal favorite of mine, we often go because my little one LOVES to see the over 20 planes on display. It is currently the second largest Airforce Museum in the entire United States and even has some interactive exhibits where you can sit in a cockpit. They have also recently unveiled a brand new virtual reality ride for $10 per rider. For older children they also host summer camps where your little can explore STEM related activities.
This beautiful gem has been around since 1908 and is yet another favorite of ours! They have a cafe and market where you can stop by and enjoy a taste of their delicious southern food be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner as they are open from 7am-6pm everyday! They also offer tours of their facilities where you can see how their peaches are packaged and can then buy some to take home! Depending on the season they even allow you to pick your own delights! Come autumn they have fun hayrides and a corn maze to explore!
I’ve come here at least four time in the past year and still haven’t been able to enjoy all that this museum has to offer! They have a fine arts exhibit which changes frequently, a planetarium where you can see the stars and short movies, and even live animals! Almost every exhibit has a hands on area for children and the museum itself hosts many events for the community! The entrance fee is free for children under 2, $5 for children 3-17, and $10 for adults. They also have senior citizen, military, and college student discounts.
