Georgia is full of fun all across the state but many people choose two major options when passing through. Before covering the rest of the state, you’ve got to know about Atlanta and Augusta and all the fun things to do in these two Georgia destinations. You might know all the hits inside these two bustling cities but this guide is going to point some uncovered Georgia fun in Atlanta and Augusta. Let’s get started in and around Atlanta!

College Park

After landing at Hartfield Jackson Airport, stick around and enjoy the surround College Park. Sure, it’s a short drive from downtown Atlanta but still has enough fun to keep you entertained. The Airport alone has plenty of things to do for overnight travelers, including Delta Flight Museum and Porsche Experience Center! College Park is a perfect destination if you’re in town to visit the Georgia International Convention Center for business. Catch a show at the outdoor Wolf Creek Ampitheater and have the perfect musical experience under the stars.


Listed on the National Historic Register, visit Norcross and experience events held throughout the year for visitors and residents. If you’re in town during the summer, stop by Thrasher Park for the annual Summer Concert Series that comes through. Kids and families will love the Netherworld Haunted House that promises to scare everything but the fun away! The best non-seasonal things to do in Norcross include Tiny Towne and Slingshot entertainment, with the former more child-centered and the latter jamming go-kart racing and other fun into one building.


Dunwoody is a Dekalb County Atlanta suburb that’s not too far away but still feels like a completely different side of Georgia. You can easily get to Braves games from here but there are tons of options in Dunwoody. Adventure-seekers of all ages love Treetop Quest for its ziplining and fun that can take up an entire afternoon. Head to Brook Run Park for that perfect picnic spot to enjoy nice sunny days and if you’re in search of indoor fun, Dunwoody’s got you covered. Catch a show at Dunwoody’s very own Stage Door Players, a community-run theater organization.


Many people come to Georgia to see Augusta and who can blame them? The big draw in Augusta is in April when the famed Masters golf tournament comes to town, but there is so much more to this wonderful city. Riverwalk and Phinizy Swamp Nature Park are great options for visitors who love beautiful scenery to go along with their walk or jog. Wedding and event planners know all too well about the church-turned-community center also known as Sacred Heart Cultural Center. As you can see, Augusta is perfect throughout the year!

So are you ready to visit Georgia now? I bet you didn’t know about half of these previously hidden things to do in Atlanta and Augusta, huh? Explore these lesser-known Georgia highlights and you’ll be sure to keep coming back! Enjoy your trip have tons of fun in Atlanta and Augusta.
