Fall Activites in Atlanta

Located in the foothills of the piedmonts, which climb to the Appalachian Mountains, Atlanta is an ideal place to be in the fall. Temperate weather conditions, colored leaves, and festivals galore offer lots of fun activities to enjoy in the fall.

One of our favorite fall activities is also one of the least expensive. That is to climb in the care and take a quick trip to the nearby mountains to enjoy the changing colors of the leaves. Fiery reds, contrasted with brilliant yellows and orange, against a canopy of varying degrees of greens and browns offer postcard perfect pictures. Find a picnic area or apple orchard, early in the fall, and bring home freshly grown apples to begin holiday baking. Children, young families, and elderly have joined us on fall trips to north Georgia where we have picked apples by the bushel, shopped at antique shops, and enjoyed stopping by a rustic general store or caf to sip hot cocoa or warm apple cider.

In Atlanta fall offers a variety of family fun for the entire family. Weekends in September and October welcome the annual Pumpkin Festival to Atlanta’s Stone Mountain Park. Enjoy family activities like pumpkin decorating, face painting, games, and more. Visit Stone Mountain a little earlier and you will enjoy the beautiful Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain. While you are there, enjoy all the amenities the park has to offer your family.
