10 Ways to Manage a Rainy Day in Georgia

It's easy to stay snuggled under a blanket when the rain is falling outside your window, but don't do it! A few downpours are the perfect excuse to pack up the kids and head to these fun indoor attractions in Georgia.

Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins, Georgia

Museum of Aviation

Head to Warner Robins for FREE aviation adventures at the Museum of Aviation. You'll find exhibits inside and outside over the 50+ acres, but for a rainy day the Eagle Building and Century for Flight Hangar create hours of excitement for all ages. Don't miss a photo op in a real airplane cockpit!

Museum of Arts and Sciences in Macon, Georgia

Museum of Arts and Science

Your kids will beg for a Macon roadtrip to see the amazing Museum of Arts and Sciences. It includes three floors of hands-on exhibits, including a mini zoo, a scientist's workshop and a map room! Don’t miss the 40 million-year-old whale fossil or the 9-foot polar bear!

The Pirates' House in Savannah, Georgia

The Pirates' House

Originally an inn for seafarers, The Pirates' House restaurant in Savannah is sure to be a hit with the kids. You won't find pirates there any longer, but your buccaneers will love a lunch or dinner treat here. Be sure to point out the rare edition of "Treasure Island" on display here.

Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace in Savannah, Georgia

Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace

Also in Savannah, the kids will love one of the most-visited sites in the city, Juliette Gordon Low Birthplace – especially if you have a Girl Scout in the family. Guided tours run six days a week.

Swan House at the Atlanta History Center

Atlanta History Center

From the permanent exhibits to the primo festivals and events, Atlanta History Center makes history come alive. There's nothing "boring" about Magic Mondays, the Olympic Games exhibit or any number of other kiddo-friendly features.

Indoor Water Parks

You don't have to give up water play when it rains. We love the Bethesda Water Park in Lawrenceville with a giant waterslide, lazy river, ceiling spray and so much more. Other indoor waterparks include South Cobb Aquatic Center and Bogan Park in Buford.

Monster Mini Golf

Can you imagine playing indoor putt putt in the dark?? GLOW in the dark, that is! Mini golf, arcade games and a (friendly) monster theme at Monster Mini Golf will generate hours of rainy day fun for everyone – from the littles to the teens.

Topgolf Atlanta

Topgolf

No need to fear the rain on this golf outing! Head to Midtown (or Topgolf Alpharetta) for great food and a round of golf fun outside, but under a roof! You don’t have to be a golf pro to adore this adventure.

Expedition: Bigfoot in Cherry Log, Georgia

Expedition: Bigfoot

Do you call him Sasquatch? Bigfoot? Yeti? However you refer to him, you're bound to be a believer when you explore this awesome little gem in Cherry Log. From masks used in the big screen to videos and drawings by Bigfoot seekers, you’re going to give this legend a second thought after a visit to Expedition: Bigfoot!

Everything Elvis at the Loudermilk Boarding House in Cornelia, Georgia

Loudermilk Boarding House

This isn't your typical boarding house! Head to the third floor of the Loudermilk Boarding House to see Joni Mabe's Panoramic Encyclopedia of Everything Elvis – with 30,000 Elvis items from snippets of his black hair to thousands of photos, this is a must-see! And if your kids love trains more than the The King, well Cornelia has a place for them too, at the Historic Train Museum. It's a museum filled with train relics and wonders.
