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.
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.
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.

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.
