15 Fantastic Atlanta Events You Should Not Miss In January

No time like the New Year to try something new, whether it’s a skill-building class or an educational performance. It’s also totally ok to watch a well-loved movie for the umpteenth time, too (a Frozen sing-a-long? We still haven’t let it go…). Learn about a civil rights leader, try a pasta-making class, take a swim, and get excited for all that 2017 holds.

Can’t Miss Atlanta Events: June 2016

School’s out for summer, and that means Atlanta kicks its kid-friendly programming into high gear. They won’t be bored at home with this lineup of fun, including butterflies, plays, festivals and more. Grab the sunscreen, snacks and water…and don’t forget to celebrate Dad at the end of the month, either.

Can’t Miss Atlanta Events: April 2016

In most parts of the world, “April Showers Bring May Flowers,” but here in Georgia the flowers are already blooming. See tulips en masse at Atlanta Botanical Garden, which is my favorite backdrop to photograph the boys (I’m working on my 5th year!) Don’t miss some wildly anticipated fun at Woodruff with the Eric Carle exhibit, or the debut of two adorable sea lion pups at the Georgia Aquarium. Spring has sprung, everyone, and there is soooo much to do!

Hidden Gems at Georgia State Parks

Most of the Georgia State Parks and Historic Sites have identified their “hidden gems” – those special attributes, trails or unusual elements that make them special. Some of these are available for anyone to see them (as long as you know what to look for) and others are only available through guided walks at certain times of the year. Below is a list of the hidden gems for each park, as well as a link to the special “Hidden Gem” events happening throughout the year.
