If you’re looking for high quality children’s programming, you’ve come to the right place. Not every town has a puppet theater, which is another good reason to check out the Center for Puppetry Arts.

The shows are followed by a short presentation by the puppeteers who discuss the different kind of p... More >>
OK - this place is fun! The LegoLand Discovery Center is inside Phipps Plaza shopping mall. I was impressed that there are signs inside the parking garage to help people park at the entrance closest to the place they are trying to go, because you’ve no doubt got little kids in tow. It’s up on level three right near Subway, Moe’s, Johnny Rockets, and the movie theater. LegoLand is divided into two parts: a big store with nothing but Legos (free of admission, of cours... More >>

If you try to look up Buck Shoals State Park in the state park registry at gastateparks.org, you won’t find it. It’s only sort-of a state park. It was purchased by the GA state in 2000 in order to protect the land and river from development. That was before the economic downturn, and lack of funding has kept the 582-acre property from being fully developed into a state park. Maybe some day. In the meantime, at least this land in North Georgia has been set aside and is still available for spec... More >>

I am lukewarm on Six Flags Over Georgia. My first trip was in October during the Fright Fest. I was highly disappointed that after spending all the money to get our family inside the park, all of the Halloween related attractions cost extra money! Seriously? These folks need to visit Cedar Point to learn how to deliver spooky fun. Cedar Point had fortune tellers, zombies (not too gross!) roaming the park, graveyards, and several haunted houses for all age ranges, all for FREE. Six Flags charges e... More >>

Noah’s Ark is an animal rehabilitation center and wildlife refuge south of Atlanta (down I-75) near the Tanger Outlet Mall. It’s about an hour and fifteen minutes from Atlanta’s north suburbs. I love this place so much more than Zoo Atlanta. It’s open and shady, and you can get right up close to the cages to see the animals. It’s not often crowded, and the kids can run and run and not get lost or run over. Compared to Noah’s Ark, Zoo Atlanta is too big, too... More >>

Four miles of trails on 12 picturesque acres in North Georgia call Uncle Shuck’s home. We took the kids up from Atlanta on an early release school day and didn’t have to battle any traffic or crowds. They have more to offer than just a corn maze, like a hayride, bonfire with marshmallows, corn cannon, pumpkins, and snacks, but we brought a picnic and didn’t feel like we needed to buy anything else to make our day any more fun.
