Life in Georgia can be as exciting as you want to make it. Grab the kids and find some fun things to do on your next vacation or long weekend!

Free Fun

Do your kids ever wonder how paper was made? Rather than Googling it, visit the American Museum of Papermaking (http://ipst.gatech.edu) for free in Atlanta to answer this common question. If you want to inspire your kids to be more ecologically conscious in their own backyards, visit the Alcovy Conservation Center (http://www.gwf.org/) in Covington, where they can look at habitat gardens they could realistically make at home.

Educational Fun

For an educational experience, head to the Fernbank Science Center (www.fsc.fernbank.edu). The goal of this science center is to make science an adventure. It has an exhibit hall, a nature walk through the Fernbank Forest, and a Planetarium. The Georgia Children’s Museum (www.georgialchildrensmuseum.com) is located in Macon and offers five floors of interactive exhibits, including the Passport to the World exhibit that lest children experience life in several foreign countries through kid-sized homes they can play in. Imagine It! Children’s Museum of Atlanta (www.childrensmuseumatlanta.org) houses exhibits that highlight science and social studies with an imaginative twist.

Environmental Fun

Nothing says exploring nature quite like a zoo, and Zoo Atlanta (www.zooatlanta.org) is a popular choice among families who live near this city. It is known for its state-of-the-art panda exhibit. It is one of only three zoos in the country to house these rare animals. Georgia also has a wide range of state parks for your kids to hike through, such as Amicalola Falls State Park (http://www.gastateparks.org/lodge). At this location you can hike to a breathtaking 729-foot tall waterfall surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest.

Seasonal Fun

Georgia has a wide range of Christmas tree farms where you can take the kids to pick and cut your own tree. Consider Carter Tree Farm (www.cartertreefarm.com), which not only has rows and rows of Christmas trees, but also hayrides and tractors to play on. The Days of Creation Christmas Tree Farm (www.daysofcreation.com) brings a Christian theme to the Christmas season. For fall and Christmas fun, head to Bradley’s Pumpkin Patch in Dawsonville (www.bradleyspumpkinpatch.com), where you can pick a Georgia-grown pumpkin or shop for your Christmas tree.

Just for Mom Fun

Gather your girlfriends and hire a sitter and head to The Cloister on Sea Island along Georgia’s coast. Here you will find The Spa at Sea Island (http://www.seaisland.com), a 65,000 square foot pampering studio. The Habersham Vineyards and Winery (www.habershamwinery.com) offers free wine tasting and vineyard tours, which is another idea for grown-up fun.
