4 Favorite Fall Activities That Won’t Break the Bank
Although it isn’t officially fall on the calendar, Labor Day ushers in the fall season for many. Fall is the perfect time to get out and explore Georgia when it’s not quite so hot. To celebrate the cooler weather, here are four ways to get active with your family that won’t break the bank.
Pick some fruit
September is the perfect time to pick apples in Georgia, and it’s one of our family’s favorite ways to spend time together. It’s also a nice way to show kids where their food comes from, and get them to enjoy eating more fruit. Head to Ellijay, the Apple Capital of Georgia, to find a number of orchards and apple houses brimming with a wide variety of locally grown apples you don't typically see in stores.
Take a bike ride
The bike trail along the Chattahoochee RiverWalk in Columbus takes you from Uptown to several tourist attractions.
For the more adventurous biker, Georgia’s State Parks offer great single-track mountain biking trails too.
Go on a scavenger hunt
Clue Town Books is a perfect way to explore Atlanta while learning a bit about the city. Solve puzzles and clues to get you to your destination. ClueTown Books are available for Oakland Cemetery, Piedmont Park, the Atlanta Beltline, the City of Decatur and many more locations.
Take in a movie
The cooler weather and shorter days are the perfect combo for an outdoor movie at one of Georgia's drive-in theaters. Pull your car up to the Starlight Drive-In Theatre & Flea Market in Atlanta, Jesup Drive-In, Tiger Drive In or the Swan Drive In in Blue Ridge.
