April A to Z: A is for Atlanta With Kids

(I am late to the party with the April challenge of posting every day (except Sunday) on A to Z, so I will be catching up over the next few days. Thanks to Ann at Travel Turtle for posting about this, so fun!)

For A it seemed like a no brainer to blog about the very city we live in, the city we call home, the place that we happily return to after our days away, despite our reluctance to end our vacations and get back to the real world.

How fortunate we are that we can do just that in a city that we happen to think is full of so much to offer for not only families but tourists of all descriptions!

So, in no particular order, find out what we love about Atlanta, and what we recommend all visitors – and residents – check out!

Showing our fair city lots of love!

The usuals:

Georgia Aquarium,  Zoo AtlantaWorld of Coca-ColaCNN Center, High Museum of Art, The Ted (for a Braves game), The Dome (for a Falcons game), Stone MountainFernbank Museum of Natural History, Atlanta Botanical Garden, Piedmont Park, Legoland Discovery Center, Children’s Museum of Atlanta

Slightly off the beaten path (and some a little outside the city center):

Fernbank Science Center, Skyview AtlantaSoutheastern Railway Museum, Center for Puppetry Arts, Bremen Museum, Oakland Cemetery, Carter Center, Etowah Indian Mounds, Tellus Science Museum, Dunwoody Nature Center, Chattahoochee Nature Center, Babyland General Hospital, The Southern Museum and INK Children’s Museum.

We have crazy holiday traditions like riding the pink pig, or making an appointment for Santa in July. We have festivals for every season and food trucks on every corner.

Atlanta has so many areas to go hiking, it has restaurants that are great for families (and lots that are great for eating without kids too), shopping  areas that extend beyond the  mall.

Want to see a game but avoid the crowds? Check out the Gwinnett Braves, the Rome Braves or the Silverbacks.

We may like our tea sweet and our pace of life slow but one thing that can’t be said about the ATL is that there isn’t anything to do here, especially for families!

Check back to see what else we will have on our A to Z Challenge!
