Things to do in Atlanta over the holidays with kids

With only a few more days of school and then two weeks off for the holidays, I’m trying to think of what to schedule to keep my little guy busy and happy. Here’s a list of things to do around metro Atlanta during the holiday season with kids.  You know I always welcome more ideas!

  • A great outlet for all that holiday energy - an indoor climbing gym called Atlanta Rocks!

    Exercise – always jumpy places, but lately Chase is loving the “Atlanta Rocks” rock climbing.  He’s been to a couple of birthday parties there and can climb almost any wall.

  • Playdates – I’ll coordinate who’s in town and when, maybe some WII games of tennis, golf etc.
  • Friends over for campfire, hot dogs, marshmallow, hot chocolate (and wine!)
  • Vinings Historic Preservation Society – Deck the Halls this coming Thursday, December 15, with woodworking, and treats. It’s at the Old Pavillion on Paces Mill Road from 4:00 – 5:00p.m.
Whether you're up to baking Martha Stewart's holiday cookies or a treasured family recipe, baking cookies with your kids is a fun tradition to make!

We’re still putting up and decorating extra trees in other rooms of the house

  • Drive around at night around Buckhead to see the elaborate Christmas decorations – I have a new camera and will try to see if I can capture some of these for those of you that haven’t seen them – kinda crazy!
  • Stone Mountain Christmas and Snow Mountain – This is a good full-day activity which includes two hours of sledding, train and tram ride, Polar Express 4D, lots of hot chocolate, etc.
  • We saw “The Grinch that Stole Christmas” at The Fox last weekend, now The Nutcracker has taken over. Each year the Atlanta Ballet brings to life the classic Christmas tale of Clara and the Nutcracker. This is a ballet full of holiday magic that has captivated young and old throughout the ages. It is also a great way to introduce children to the art of dance. December 8 – 24 at the Fox Theatre
DryBar is the latest trend in Atlanta combining socializing with getting "all fixed up" and drinking! Genius!

Moms, a new place I need to check out – “Dry Bar“, apparently it’s a walk-in-get-your-hair-washed-and blow-dry place that serves wine!

I was at a party last night and everyone was talking about it.  It’s been open about three months and it’s right next to the St. Regis on West Paces Ferry Road in Buckhead.   You might even need a reservation this time of year.  Interesting new concept.  For my friends in other cities – new business idea you might want to try!
