National Parks / Natural World in Atlanta
Atlanta might be a hustling and bustling vibrant city, but don't look past those beautiful areas of nature just within it's reach!
The great outdoors is named as such because it's, well - great! Just a stone's throw from the city are nature centers and recreation areas perfect for that family escape to the wonders of the natural world.
Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area let's you raft, fish and picnic through rocky shoals and the shade of the big trees. The Nature Center is a must visit where you can learn all about the wildlife you're about to spot too!
If you love history, some locations mix it's past with nature into one, such as the Kennesaw Mountain NBP, with preserved earthworks, cannon emplacements and even monuments.
Right on your doorstep don't miss the gardens of the Martin Luther King Jnr National Historic Site either! A welcome escape from the bustle of the city.
