Panola Mountain State Park

Home to a rare, pristine monadnock, Panola Mountain State Park provides you an oasis near Metro Atlanta to play, unwind, learn or discover the diverse natural and cultural heritage of the piedmont region.

Reviewed By roadtripfamof5 - Atlanta

The only way to access the mountain is to go with a park ranger. The trail will take you through a softwood, and then a hardwood forest, and later around the small lake and cabins of the original land owner. You'll stop at several old moonshining sites. The hike to the mountaintop is gradual, and once you get there you'll see unique vegetation and a glimpse of both Stone Mountain and the Atlanta skyline in the distance. The hike takes between three and four hours. Anyone in moderate condition or better can manage it with ease. Our six year-old completed the walk without complaint. You just have to ensure that children do not step on the fragile lichens on the mountain face. The cost is $10 per person. Check the website for dates and times.

Stately Oaks Plantation

Stately Oaks is an 1839 antebellum house listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its plain Greek Revival architecture is representative of the era in which it was built. It was originally constructed in 1839 by Mr. Whitmill Allen who sold his home to Robert McCord in 1858 and then moved to Tyler, Texas. It is located in Jonesboro, GA., the very city where Scarlett had to pay the taxes on Tara. Even though Tara only existed in Margaret Mitchell's imagination, she placed Tara in Clayton County where she had visited relatives who lived on a large plantation south of Jonesboro. Many of the stories she heard as a child are in the movie. Clayton County is truly home of Gone With the Wind. Also on site, are a one room schoolhouse, a tenant cabin, cook's house, country store, blacksmith shop and Native American Indian Village.

Our guides Colonel Al and Miss Connie were wonderful! Their authentic period clothing and knowledge about the history of the plantation were entertaining as well as educational. Our group had a delicious catered lunch in the one-room schoolhouse. This would be a great place for families, couples, or groups.

Monastery of the Holy Spirit

Visitors are welcome year-round to the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, the inspirational home of Georgia’s Trappist Monks. With more than 2,300 acres of contemplative space, the Monastery is less than an hour from Atlanta’s international airport. The new Monastic Heritage Center – a 17,000-square-foot, state-of-the-­art museum – is educational, interactive and kid-friendly. There is also a bonsai garden, store and cafe. At the Abbey Gift Shop, which is the largest Christian bookstore in Georgia, visitors can purchase monk-made biscotti, fruitcake and fudge, all of which the monks sell in an effort to be self-sustaining and feed the local poor. You can also see the Norman Gothic architecture of the Abbey Church and take a quiet stroll along the lake, or spend time in prayer and meditation.

Reviewed By Maria G - Dunwoody, Georgia

The Monastery of the Holy Spirit is located in a beautiful wooded area with a lake. The monks pray 5 times a day and welcome 'quiet' visitors to their chapel. The gift shop has a wonderful selection of gourmet and religious gifts. The museum is very interesting.

Southern Belle Farm

Southern Belle Farm in McDonough, GA, (south Atlanta metro) is a 200-acre working farm, with U Pick strawberries, pumpkins, a corn maze, and old-fashioned family fun. Hosting educational field trips, weddings, birthday parties and facilities to host corporate group events year round.

Reviewed By SaDarein W - Atlanta, Georgia

Nice place quaint location. Lots of different farm or country themed activities. Farm animals, trampoline park, air guns (shoots corn) corn mazes, wagon rides, pumpkin patches, food etc. A nice way to experience non urban fun. Great for kids, young adults & grandparents. Teenagers might get bored or may love it. It's close enough to the highway to get good cell coverage (data too) but far enough away to have that mostly untouched feel. The multiple stands & huts that sell food spoil it slightly but they are made of wood. Camp fires are available. They close @ 19:00 [9pm].

The nature that is avalable here is breathtaking. There is a couple ponds, swamps, and lakes around the preserve. There is snakes loose so something to be on the lookout for. There is turtles, swans, ducks, geese, deer, and different birds in the area. Very motivating to take a morning jog around the trail.

Arabia Mountain

Reviewed By 441paml - Johns Creek, Georgia

My husband and I are always trying to find new and different things to do in Atlanta even after living here since 1982. We research and come up with something cool and interesting about once or twice a month. Last Saturday we went to hike Arabia Mountain and it was great! With my being a professional photographer, it was a fun experience and a beautiful place. I highly recommend everyone visiting and seeing this very large piece of granite with beautiful views, along with great hiking trails.

Spivey Hall

Spivey Hall, located on the campus of Clayton State University, is a 400-seat, acoustically-superior performing arts venue that has presented the best in jazz and classical music to the metro Atlanta area since 1991. Its celebrated concert series receives regular national and international attention as one of America's finest, and the Hall's acoustics and design are routinely lauded by patrons, pundits and performers. Thanks to frequent appearances on American Public Media's "Performance Today," as heard on public radio stations across the country, the hall has earned a national reputation while also reaching an international audience through exposure in such publications as BBC Music magazine and International Arts Manager. The Hall also routinely receives superb accolades from the noted artists it annually presents. "Spivey is the best of the newer small halls in America," says concert pianist Steven Blier, while jazz pianist Ellis Marsalis believes "Spivey Hall is the most fantastic little performance hall I have played - ever!" In addition to a world-renowned concert series, Spivey Hall has an innovative approach to education-outreach, which has resulted in the formation of the award-winning Spivey Hall Children's Choir and the newer Spivey Hall Young Artists. Its Young People's Concerts series won the prestigious Abby Award for arts education in Atlanta in 1998.

Perhaps the best music venue in which I have heard concerts! It is a small hall, about 350 seats. The acoustics are fantastic. They have major sponsorship from a benefactor (Dr. Spivey), so they get world class musicians and groups and sell tickets for affordable prices; $25-75. It is a super bargain for the caliber, acoustics, and close view. We have been to about 50 concerts there during the last 15 years. This is their 25 anniversary and they are bringing in about 25 world class performing groups to celebrate the anniversary. It is on the campus of Clayton State University; lots of free parking. Spivey Hall is on a beautiful lake.
If you like classical or refined music, take in a concert at this Great Music Venue!
