Getting in your car and taking a trip with your kids is fun. However, having a fun day trip depends on where you go and what you are looking to do. Fortunately, you can find a lot of fun things to do in Georgia that make good day trips. If you want to take a quick trip with your family, here are ideas for fun day trips with kids in Georgia.
Explore Blue Ridge, Georgia
If you live in the Atlanta area, check out Blue Ridge, Georgia. It is a quick trip away and has a bunch of fun things for you to do. If you are into hiking, you can take your kids to explore the Georgia Mountains. It is a great way to teach basic outdoorsman skills like the basics of camping or fishing. Orvis offers beginner flyfishing lessons to people in the area and you can sign up for a class. You can also explore local amenities like Rock Creek for some water activities.
Huck's General Store
Near Blue Ridge, you can also find Huck's General Store
. Taking your kids to see things that were around more when you were young is especially fun. Huck's General Store looks like an old candy store and is a unique experience for many kids. The store has large barrels full of candy and can show kids what general stores were like a long time ago.
If you are really into food, then you should check out the Farmview Market
in Madison, Georgia. Nearly all of the products you can find here are made or grown in Georgia by local producers. It is a great way to show kids what it is like to have a business, learn about farms, and to experience a farmer's market.
Wild Adventures Theme Park
You can also take your kids to check out Wild Adventures Theme Park in Valdosta, Georgia. It has water play areas to help you stay cool and other rides for added excitement. There are shows and concerts here as well, so there is something that everyone will enjoy. Plus, there are roller coasters for adults and kids, so that everyone can enjoy a thrill ride.
If you want a more educational trip, check out the Georgia Aquarium. Here your kids will be able to learn about local wildlife, as well as conservation efforts. The aquarium is one of the largest in the country and it is planning to expand soon. The new area will feature a shark exhibit so that people can learn more factual information about them, rather than what they hear in movies or shark stories.
Exploring Georgia for a day is relaxing and educational. Your kids will appreciate the chance to get out of the house and you'll have a chance to build lasting memories. A bigger truck, SUV, or crossover might be what you need. Fortunately, the team over at Wade Ford can help you. They have the expertise, experience, and inventory to help you find the right vehicle for you and your family.
