Family-friendly activities: Things to do in Atlanta with kids


Going to Atlanta with the whole family and wondering how to organize your time? Don’t fret – there are lots of fun things to do in Atlanta with kids! Starry-eyed fans can visit shooting locations for the Walking Dead, Stranger Things, Venom, and the Avengers. Take young foodies on a tour of Downtown, Grant Park, and other neighborhoods for the best fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, and fried pimento cheese. Then work all that off with some kayaking or rowing along the Chattahoochee River. Or have some old-fashioned family fun at Skyline Park’s arcade and mini golf above the city.

Visit the Fernbank Natural History Museum 


Natural history is more than just fossils. However, not much beats being greeted by a family of dinosaurs. Inside, the kids will see lots of dinosaurs, including a Giganotosaurus that is unsurprisingly huge. Young scientists can learn about how the dinosaurs died off and turned into Okefenokee Swamp. They can continue exploring the cultures that influenced the region or go outside and traipse through nature in real life. The Fernbank Forest is 65 acres of old-growth forestry. Your whole family can go on a stroll along the trails and take a moment to enjoy the birds and the towering trees. For extra family fun things to do, check the schedule for storytelling, live experiments, and animal encounters.


Keep in mind that strollers may be difficult to maneuver in some of the outdoor areas, but you can take them inside the museum. You can store things inside the available lockers and use the baby changing facilities. Food and drink are only allowed at the café and restaurant.

Visit the World of Coca-Cola 


Visit the vault with the secret formula worth millions. Discover the different flavors of Coca-Cola around the world. Young cola connoisseurs can try their hand at making their own refreshing beverage. Maybe their formula will be the next new Coke! They can learn how the bottle took shape and where the brand’s signature polar bear came from (he may be older than you think!). Everyone in the family may be amazed at how influential a single soft drink has been. Especially when it comes to Santa.


Strollers are welcome, and there is no storage area or coat check available. If needed, baby changing facilities are at your disposal.

Visit the Center for Puppetry Arts

 
Meet your favorite Muppet or Sesame Street character. Then introduce them to your kids. The center has an extensive museum of puppets from around the world. Show the kids that puppets are enjoyed by young and old everywhere, from Indonesia to England and even your home country. Then join in on a tour of Jim Henson’s Gallery or a special workshop with an artist-in-residence. Check the schedule for what’s on – you may catch a behind-the-scenes tour or get to create your own puppet.

 You can’t use strollers in the theater, but staff will help store them.

 
Visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens
 

Rain or shine, you can get your garden fix. The gardens are open all year round, although you may want to check the weather before you go. Don’t miss the artwork sculpted out of the greenery, starting with the Earth Goddess created from over 10,000 different plants. Take the family past the calm water feature to the children’s garden, where the fun begins. Here, kids paint with water, make wooden drums, and plant vegetables. For a look into the weird and wonderful, they can check out the Venus flytraps and pitcher plants that eat bugs. Or they can see bees busy at work behind safety glass. Then check the schedule to catch garden playtime, storytelling, and frog feeding times.


Strollers are allowed. Children of all ages are welcome, but there are restrictions on running and picking flowers and plants outside the children’s garden. You can’t bring in outside food and drinks, but the restaurant, café, and snack bar offer children’s menus. There are plenty of water fountains throughout the park, as well as baby changing facilities.

Visit the Delta Flight Museum


Planes amaze children and adults alike. How do these huge machines fly and stay in the air? How do they land? These questions may just be answered at the Delta Flight Museum. More than just a tour through the history of aviation, there’s a scavenger hunt, complete with a pre-flight checklist to keep everyone focused. After soaking it all in, you might want to try your hand at the flight simulator or explore the first 747 ever built.

What people are saying about Atlanta

Really enjoyed ourselves. The only issue we had involved the keeper talks. We could not find the locations for them and could not easily locate a zoo employee to help. One of the maintenance staff tried to assist and another person talked to us about the alpacas- stating they had a staff meeting and there would be no talk that day. We appreciated her taking time with us to talk about the alpacas. Maybe there could be a way to let people know of the talk locations or any changes in the schedule.

Nice to skip the ticket purchase line though had to wait in line to enter the attraction. Another great thing was that we didn’t have to enter a time of arrival. Website wasn’t clear on those instructions but overall experience was great. No hiccups. Would recommend offering the website link for parking and aquarium show bookings once the city pass is purchased.

Great way to get an overview of Atlanta! We took this tour our 1st morning in ATL, and were very glad that we did. It provided a great baseline for the rest of our week. Shawna G was an awesome tour guide!

Fantastic tour! So much fun and we learned so much! Patrick was a phenomenal guide!
