Fun things natives like to do in Atlanta?

Day trips/weekend getaways?

Fun Restaurants in Atlanta

Last minute vacation with kids less than 3 hours

Scan through these threads and if you have more specific questions just ask.

Basically you can go North to the mountains. If you can go a few hundred more miles--head south to the GA coast--Savannah/Tybee or Brunswick/St. Simon's, Jekyll or somewhere in the Golden Isles. Others prefer the FL panhandle from Panama City/once dubbed the Redneck Riviera or Fort Walton/Destin. Whiter beachs than the GA Coast.

I don't understand your question.

LOL--I actively participate in shopping but that is probably not what you mean.

If you choose to visit a state park you can hike the trails.

I haven't been to Lake Junaluska, which is in NC, in years but I think there are 'fun things to do'.

My personal faves are Vogel State Park, Cloudland Canyon, Red Top Mtn and Unicoi.
Vogel and Red Top have great lodging facilities.

Another North suggestion would be the Ellijay/Blue Ridge area, even north to the Natahala area. Ellijay is about 1.5 hours, maybe 80 or 90 miles, from the top end of I-285. I like this area much more than the Helen area. Great day hikes. If you're into shopping and stuff, you can look in downtown Ellijay and Blue Ridge. Also there are two great bbq joints along 515.
