Theme Park
“This is a great way to cool down and get out of the GA heat. Lots of shade and fun rides. Our favorite is the Racer! This is not a huge waterpark and the lines for the best rides can be long so look into getting there early.”

“This historic mountain was a key battleground of Union General Sherman’s March through Atlanta to defeat the Confederate Army in 1864. Today it serves as a favorite destination of locals and tourists for relaxing in the sun or exercise throughout all four seasons of the year. Great location to enjoy Fourth of July festivities & fireworks. Only a twenty minute walk to the North! ”
