Thirteen great family places in TN and GA

  1. Georgia Aquarium - the worlds largest saltwater aquarium.
  2. Six Flags Over Georgia - another staple in Atlanta. If you go make sure you ride the 'Scream Machine' and the 'Georgia Cyclone' both are wood roller coasters.
  3. Rock City - located in Lookout Mountain this is a neat natural site to see. You can see seven states from the overlook. Can you fit in fat man squeeze?
  4. Ruby Falls - another great natural site in Lookout Mountain. Travel deep into the rocky earth to see a natural waterfall and crystals.
  5. Creative Discovery Museum - a great place for the entire family to play. They have different stations for all ages from infants to teenagers. Even Mom and Dad will have fun playing!
  6. Dollywood - a staple of Pigeon Forge. This park used to be Silverdollar City. Dolly Parton has expanded it into a mega amusement park and now also has a water park just down the street. This is a great place to visit during Winterfest at Christmas when the night is lit up with over a million lights!
  7. Ripley's Aquarium - another great aquarium for the family.
  8. Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum - each location has something different. Ripley's houses some of the worlds best oddities.
  9. Atlanta Zoo - a wonderful large zoo. Be sure to arive early and wear good shoes. This zoo is very large (and a little hilly) but something that the kids are guaranteed to love!
  10. Chickamauga Battlefield - a great place for the history buffs. You can see actual battle cannons still in the fields. There is also a visitors center telling all the history of the battlefield.
  11. White Water - a huge water park located in Atlanta. The park offers special areas for the young infants away from the older children which is great. Make sure to take LOTS of sunscreen.
  12. Gatlinburg - a great family vacation spot. Lots of sightseeing, great food, great shopping and more. This place is great for both summer vacations and also in the winter when you just might see some snow!
