Let Dad feel the power of driving real tanks! This truly unique adventure begins with personal instructions that familiarize Dad with operating 17 tons of military steel. If he can drive a car, he can drive a tank at Tank Town. He’ll thunder around a course specially designed with dips and bumps for a thrilling ride. This is one adventure that’s even better when rain turns it into a muddy mess. Ramp up the thrills with a car crushing. Feel the car crumple and hear the glass shatter as Dad flattens a car with a tank! Adventure packages at Tank Town USA can include tank driving, car crushing and operating an excavator.
Camping at Georgia State Parks
Paddle to a campsite at Chattahoochee Bend State Park in Newnan.
Treat Dad to a getaway weekend sleeping under the stars at one of Georgia’s State Parks. More than 40 campgrounds across the state offer a range of campsites from full-service RV hookups and car-camping tent sites, to primitive backcountry seclusion. Camp Red Top Mountain and join Dad for the live Mountain Music Concert Series. Explore the hidden gems of Tallulah Gorge or Cloudland Canyon, or paddle-in to a private escape at Chattahoochee Bend.
Escape with Dad to Georgia's Golden Isles for a fun-filled holiday on the beach. Jekyll Island features campground and hotel accommodations, 10 miles of white sand beaches, and a beautiful coastal golf course. The island enjoys limited development, preserving its much of its gorgeous barrier island landscape while still offering an exciting water park, fishing pier and historic landmarks. A budget-friendly destination, Jekyll features family fun attractions like the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, Driftwood Beach, and natural surface bike paths to traverse the island.
