Big Family Fun in Atlanta

Atlanta has fun vacation options for all ages

  • Six Flags Over Georgia water ride

    Get wet on the white water ride at Six Flags Over Georgia in Austell, Georgia

Both new and updated favorites, these Metro Atlanta spots always get a thumbs up in the fun department!

  • Stone Mountain Park

    Spend the day at the world’s largest exposed granite outcropping at Stone Mountain Park. Climb the mountain for the view (and great exercise), or ride the Skylift, golf, hike, watch a laser show, hang out at the Great Barn or get onboard the locomotive. 

  • Wren's Nest

    Be captivated by the storytelling of the "Wren’s Nest Ramblers" at The Wren's Nest, the West End home of Joel Chandler Harris. Harris recorded the Brer Rabbit stories. 

  • Bicycle Tours of Atlanta

    Pedal through Atlanta’s most happening and vibrant neighborhoods with Bicycle Tours of Atlanta. You'll experience a leisurely tour of culture, history and art.

  • Georgia Aquarium

    Either swim with giant whale sharks and beluga whales or just sit back and watch them play at Georgia Aquarium. Make friends with a dolphin, sea otter and penguin in new encounter programs. 

  • Zoo Atlanta

    Feed giraffes and go behind the scenes with African elephants, giant pandas and lemurs at Zoo Atlanta. Located in historic Grant Park, Zoo Atlanta is home to the country’s only twin panda cubs and largest collection of gorillas and orangutans in North America.

  • Six Flags Over Georgia

    At Six Flags Over Georgia, laugh and scream at the same time on thrill rides like the open-air, high-flying SkyScreamer and monster roller coasters like Goliath. Then catch your breath and cool off at Hurricane Harbor Water Park. 

  • Fernbank Museum of Natural History

    Say hello to the world’s largest dinosaur as you walk in the front door of Fernbank Museum of Natural History. Kids turn into explorers in the interactive NatureQuest, and everyone can enjoy the feeling of “being there” at the IMAX Theatre.

    Feel like a star on the Atlanta Movie Tours. You will visit dozens of locations used in blockbuster movies and television shows, including “Hunger Games: Catching Fire,” “Anchorman 2” and several Tyler Perry films. Separate tours are dedicated to the zombie-filled hit “The Walking Dead.”
  • Atlanta Botanical Garden

    See what’s blooming at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, a 30-acre oasis in Midtown. There’s a Children’s Garden for hands-on fun and learning, the Fuqua Conservatory’s Tropical Orchid House, outdoor cooking demos and a summer concert series.
