If you’ve decided to move to Atlanta, Georgia, you’ve picked a great place for your relocation. This is a bustling area with a temperate climate and lots of activities to keep you entertained. Here are some of the fun things to do in Atlanta this fall.
Enjoy Spooky Times in the Garden
While the Atlanta Botanical Garden is worth visiting any time if you enjoy plants and art, its Scarecrows in the Garden exhibition is fun for everyone. Taking place from the end of September through October, this event features imaginative scarecrows made by locals, including schools and businesses. Plus, you can visit the rest of the gardens while you’re there, with different experiences available for families, individuals and romantic couples.
Don’t Miss Local Fall Festivals
Festivals offer a fun way to spend a fall day, and Georgia definitely doesn’t disappoint in this area. You’ll find festivals ready whenever you are throughout the fall months, and there’s something for everyone. While you’ll find more festivals if you venture beyond Atlanta, the city area holds the Virginia-Highland Summerfest and Dragon Con in September, the Georgia State Fair, Oktoberfest and more in October, and the Chastain Park Arts Festival in November.
Get a Feel for Local History
There’s no better way to get acquainted with your new area than by learning about its history. Head to the Atlanta History Center for a fun way to get your local history lessons. You’ll get the chance to explore more than 30 acres of exhibitions, houses and gardens, learning bit by bit as you go. Your adventure includes the nature and culture of the area, to give you a better perspective of your new home. If anyone in your party is a Hunger Games fan, they’ll love the Capital Tour Experience, which shows on-site locations where part of the second film was shot.
Have a Football Fan Experience
Fans of college football, and even those who aren’t, will enjoy a trip to the College Football Hall of Fame. This site represents colleges from all over the nation, so you’re sure to find the school you follow. Or you can start becoming a University of Georgia fan to fit your new surroundings. This Hall of Fame celebrates the past and present of college football, with education and experiences. If you have kids, they’ll have a blast at the indoor playing field.
Find Your Music Scene
Being that you’ll be living in or near a major city, you’ll have fantastic access to music venues and musicians visiting to put on shows. Check out the lineup for this fall in the area. You’ll find concerts by John Legend, Jason Aldean and others coming up, along with music festivals and small live shows.
See Sea Life at the Aquarium
Despite being inland from the ocean, Atlanta gives you the opportunity to take in plenty of sea life at the Georgia Aquarium. This is one of the area’s top attractions, and the designation is for good reason. You’ll see sharks, rays, sea lions, dolphins and much more. Not only can you watch them swim, you can also enjoy presentations and learning opportunities. Plus, your ticket will support research and conservation, which is a great way to contribute to your new area. You can also find a variety of fall activities on the upcoming event calendar, including Dragon Con Night, Aqua Vino and Sips Under the Sea for Halloween.
Look to the Skies for an Airshow
It’s worth a trip to Rome (Georgia, that is!), which is about an hour and fifteen minutes outside of Atlanta, for the Wings Over North Georgia Airshow in late October. Located at the Russell Regional Airport, the show features the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, vintage aircraft rides, a SWAT helicopter demo, a U.S. army parachute demonstration and more.
