Two family travel bloggers, Mary Jo DiLonardo of The Mommy Diaries and Amy Querido of Atlanta with Kid, recommend their favorite kid-friendly things to do in their beautiful hometown. Capitol Museum: You wouldna€™t think a state capitol would promise much besides stiff politicians and lots of staid portraits, but head to downtown Atlanta to the fourth floor of the golden-domed Georgia State Capitol building. Greenway Trails: Atlanta has an extensive greenway trail system that offers plenty of choices for a family outing. Piedmont Park: This family favorite in-town park offers activities for the whole family, from bike trails to playgrounds to a dog park for four-legged family members. Historic Oakland Cemetery: You can celebrate Halloween all year round at Atlantaa€™s oldest resting place, home to legions of Confederate soldiers, old ATL families, and many historic figures such as Margaret Mitchell, the author of Gone with the Wind, and golfer Bobby Jones. The King Center: For older kids who have studied the Civil Rights Movement, therea€™s no excuse to miss this moving tribute to Martin Luther King, Jr. Atlanta State Farmers Market: If your kid doesna€™t have a loving relationship with broccoli, change that by visiting this giant outdoor supermarket.


Amid the rocks and minerals on display at the Capitol Museum are truly amazing finds such as a two-headed calf and a two-headed snake. Ita€™s has a great playground for kids big and small, and several pavilions for family picnics or parties.
There are also events scheduled throughout the year, including a fun farmer's market, seasonal events like pumpkin decorating, and a free historic park tour.
Kids just think the monuments and headstones are cool (groundskeepers discourage rubbings, by the way). You can pay respects at Kinga€™s memorial, hear his speeches, watch his videos, tour Ebenezer Baptist Church where he preached, and even visit his home on Auburn Avenue. At an impressive 150 acres, ita€™s one of the largest such entities on the planet offering everything from monstrous branches of sugarcane to huge sacks of peanuts and unshelled beans bigger than your children. Sure, you can pore over the cases of mounted wildlife native to Georgia, American Indian artifacts, and the Six Flags roller coaster wheel, but I guarantee your kids will want to keep staring at the cow and the snake.


A few notable options include the Silver Comet Trail in Cobb county, Alpharetta Big Creek Greenway in North Fulton county, and the new Forsyth County Big Creek Greenway. On a hot summer day, bring your swimsuits and for a small fee you can cool off in the public swimming pool (open 11am-7pm, Memorial Day to Labor Day). Ita€™s so fun to see things youa€™ve never seen at your grocery store and the sounds of all the music and languages from all the cultures of all the vendors make the whole trip an international adventure.
Bring your stroller, wear your walking shoes, and enjoy a beautiful day at these nature trails. King with a park ranger guide, tour the Freedom Hall complex, and check out the visitor center to learn more about his story and accomplishments.
