The Chattahoochee Nature Center offers entertainment for the whole family. You can learn about local wildlife, explore the woodland trails and wander through the butterfly garden. The Discovery Center offers interactive exhibits, live animal habitats and hands-on fun.

Six Flags Over Georgia premiered its new mega water park, Hurricane Harbor, last year. Your family can enjoy all of the perks of the Six Flags park and cool off at the same time. The water park features a wave pool, water slides, thrill rides and a children’s water play area. Additionally, Six Flags features over 44 park attractions with dining options throughout the park.

Baseball season has begun, so be sure to go support the Atlanta Braves at Turner Field! Known as America’s pastime, a game is a great place for a family outing. Enjoy theme nights, summer concerts and watching your kids run the bases.

Piedmont Park is a budget-friendly way to get the whole family together this summer. Pack a picnic, frisbee and a soccer ball to make a day of it. No need to leave Fido at home, either.
