Best Stay-Cations & Quick Getaways in Metro Atlanta
May 20th, 2021

School is about to be out for summer! Not up for a flight to a sunny beach or a long car drive to visit relatives? This summer, try these “stay-cations” instead and discover all the fun close to home:

City Pass Atlanta

Visit FIVE of Atlanta’s top attractions, all of them hand-picked and packaged together to give you maximum savings.  For just $77 for adult tickets and $63 for children, your family can visit the Georgia Aquarium, the World of Coca-Cola, and Zoo Atlanta. Then choose two of the following:  The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, the Fernbank Museum of Natural History, or the College Football Hall of Fame. This is a ton of Atlanta adventure for a discounted price tag. You’ll save 45% by buying admission through City Pass. Each of these attractions makes a great day trip, but the savings you’ll get with City Pass is hard to beat and will occupy your family all week long.  Visit  City Pass Atlanta for all the details.

Hike or Bike the Silver Comet Trail

The Silver Comet trail runs through Paulding County following an old rail line for 61 miles from Atlanta to the Georgia-Alabama state line. It is one of the longest paved paths in the United States, weaving a route through scenic forests, rolling country sides and quaint downtown areas. Near the trail’s halfway mark, it runs into downtown Rockmart’s Riverwalk Park, featuring several historical sites and fun places to eat. The Silver Comet Trail offers an active afternoon getaway or a full day of biking and hiking fun.

Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament

Trek out to Sugar Loaf Mills in Lawrenceville, Georgia for true Medieval fanfare as knights joust, falcons swoop from the rafters, and horses kick up a little dust! Delicious food fit for a king accompanies this fun-filled show where audience participation is encouraged at every turn.  Cheer for your knight, pose with a damsel in distress, and witness the pageantry of a medieval tournament. It’s a unique day trip that will make memories to last a lifetime. Tickets are $56.95 for adults and $36.95 for kids. Check in at for valuable discount codes.

Acworth Beach & Cauble Park

Stay close to home and enjoy a day at the beach and in the water at Cauble Park along the northern shore of Lake Acworth. This 90-acre lake offers beach access, lakefront walkways, picnic areas, and playgrounds. It’s open for swimming from early June until Labor Day. It’s an easy, inexpensive way to soak up the sun and stay cool when the temperatures start to rise.

Northwest Georgia Attractions

Take a quick trip north to Ringgold, Georgia for Civil War history, the region’s only winery, and quirky Rock City just over the state line in Tennessee. Georgia Winery, established in 1983, offers tours and tastings daily, focusing mainly on muscadine wines. The Chickamauga Battlefield Visitor Center is near the state line, giving an important glimpse into the past at the site where a significant Civil War battle took place. And Rock City, with walking trails and truly unique art displays, is just a short drive into Tennessee.

It’s a great time to get out and enjoy your corner of the great State of Georgia. No matter how you spend summer break this year – whether close to home or far from it – we hope you enjoy every moment of time with friends and family.
