Vacationing in GA/TN/AL

Posted by   + Show Post

Anyone in the GA/TN/AL area who have ideas about some fun family friendly ideas to do?

We live in W. Ga and are stumped as to what kind of family vacation to do this year.  Our son will be 1yr in July so we do NOT want to do the beach until next year.  We also have a 4yr daughter.

We did a stay-cation 2yrs ago and it was so fun, and may end up doing it again if we can't figure out something to do.  You can get an Atlanta pass and do 5 attractions for a great deal.  For the 3 of us we had a week of fun for less than $100!

THANKS!

I go to Gatlinburg, TN every year with my husband.  We camp or stay in a hotel.  The Smoky Mountain National Park is great to camp at, and hike.  There are plenty of free/cheap things to do in that area.  Highly recommend.

There is a safari park in Georgia near the botanical gardens, you ride through in a jeep and can feed the animals. I had a giraffe lick me!

Ruby falls, and the aquarium in ATL,Ga or Chattanooga, TN

If you haven't been to the "mountains" of North Georgia, that might be something to do. There are several lakes up there (Lake Chatuge is my fave).  You can rent a cabin or take a camper/tent up and spend some time at the lake.  Usually you can rent a boat, jet ski, etc. if you want to.  I know my LO, as well as my niece, just love being able to walk down to the water, see the geese/ducks/fish, etc.
