Summer break is quickly coming to an end for most students across metro Atlanta. Make sure to take advantage of the last couple weeks before the school year starts. Here are five things to do across Atlanta before the summer break ends and back to school begins.
Enjoy Learning | Children’s Museum of Atlanta
Elementary-aged children are sure to love the Children’s Museum of Atlanta. It’s the ideal place to spend a rainy day or weekend before the start of school. Here, children will enjoy making their way through a variety of exhibits. Does your little one pride him or herself on their artistic abilities? Make sure to check out the “Let Your Creativity Flow” exhibit. Are they constantly asking questions about how things work? The “Step Up to Science” exhibit provides the perfect opportunity to learn through hands-on experiments.
Explore the Deep Sea | Georgia Aquarium
One of the world’s largest aquariums, the Georgia Aquarium is a favorite of children and adults alike. Step inside a world of adventure and explore the deep sea as you make your way through the exhibits and galleries. One of the most popular galleries at the museum is Ocean Voyager, which includes an underwater acrylic tunnel. At the SunTrust Pier 225 gallery, you’ll travel to the California coast to learn about sea lions. Wherever your aquarium adventure takes you, it’s sure to be a memory-filled summertime trip.
Reach New Heights | Skyview Atlanta
For one of the best views of the Atlanta skyline, visit Skyview Atlanta. With panoramic views of downtown Atlanta, you’ll get to see the city from a new perspective. Located at Centennial Olympic Park, you can also take advantage of the other attractions housed in and around the park.
Catch a Braves Game | SunTrust Park
No summer break in Atlanta would be complete without heading to SunTrust Park to watch an Atlanta Braves game. The park offers several activities for children to enjoy while at the game. These include Hope and Will’s Sandlot which features a rock climbing wall, zipline, and more. Another fan favorite is Kids Run the Bases where children are invited onto the field to run the bases after Sunday home games.
Float the Chattahoochee | Chattahoochee River
Make sure to spend a day on the Chattahoochee River before school is back in session. Here you can enjoy a wide range of water recreation activities.
