Looking for fun family activities in Atlanta this summer? Gather up the kids, hop in the car and check out these local attractions.
Take a Civil Bikes History Tour
Civil Bikes combines the benefits of biking with historical tours of Atlanta. Sign up for one of the tours to immerse yourself in Atlanta’s history, or take a biking class to brush up on your skills. You’ll come away with a greater appreciation for Atlanta’s rich background.
Catch a Show at Fox Theatre
At Fox Theatre, you can experience a Broadway show, see your favorite band and enjoy summer movies. So many Atlanta events are held here that you’ll have to come back multiple times over the summer to enjoy them all. In between activities, book a behind-the-scenes tour and check out the gigantic 1929 Moller theater organ.
Experience Indie Crafts
If independent crafts and vintage items are your “thing”, then you don’t want to miss the Indie Craft Experience. Commonly known as ICE, this unique Atlanta attraction began as a way for crafters to gain more exposure and have a marketplace to sell their goods. Today, ICE holds multiple events throughout the year, including a summer camp for kids and the Made Handcrafted Market.
Summer wouldn’t be the same without summer reading, and the Decatur Book Festival is the perfect place to get excited about your favorite stories. Unique among Atlanta events, this festival includes music, food, a parade for kids and poetry slams along with presentations from well-known authors. For true book lovers, the chance to hang out with famous writers is too good to pass up.
Behold Botanical Garden Beauty
Summer stress relief is right around the corner at the Atlanta Botanical Gardens. Explore 30 acres of flora and fauna, stop by the conservatory or take a stroll through an authentic Japanese garden. Onsite events make every visit even more interesting.
Cool off at World of Coca-Cola
Soda and pop culture meet at World of Coca-Cola. See interesting artifacts from the brand’s past, view historically accurate soda fountain replicas and watch 4-D theater displays to get a sense of how Coca-Cola came to be the popular beverage it is today. Of course, you can also sample Coke to your heart’s content, tasting flavors from around the world before bringing the kids to get their picture taken with the brand’s iconic polar bear.
Take the Kids to Callaway Gardens
Summer events at Callaway Gardens include music on the beach, a farmer’s market and even zip lining. Stay at the cottages onsite or spend the day exploring the butterfly house. When you need a break, take a garden tour and marvel at the natural beauty of your surroundings.
With so many summer events to explore in the Atlanta area, there’s no excuse to spend the season indoors. Pick the activities with the most appeal, and get out there to enjoy the warm weather!
