I live about 30 mins north of Atlanta and don't venture OTP (outside the perimeter) too often. I mainly stay in the Roswell or Duluth area.

What's there to do on the weekends or what are some good places to go on the weekends, and what about nightlife/social life for someone above 21?

Any suggestions?

Default what to do outside the perimeter?

wow, hike! get a book about the parks in georgia, (free @ ga parks and rec ) you can spend many a week ends driving to water falls, one a week end. check it out, do some hiking, stop at a little dinner in a small town, do some festival shopping during the fall. go to the lake, not very expensive to rent a pontoonand get some major sun.

hum, go bmx'ing there are several bmx parks from mcdonough to marietta.

drive only 1 1/2 hour north to north carolina and just venture out up there. lake blue ridge, the most beautiful water in georgia. worth just the trip

hmmm go on tour at the ga marble site in tate, off of hwy 575 north

rent a cabin for cheap at a georgia state park on lake hartwell.

mountain bike on trails at blankets creek (I think) right off hwy 575 and sixes road

or right under 285 near powers ferry rd (I think)

there is soo much to do if you like the outdoors

now, for nightlife,

go to town center mall area, there is a , bahama breeze, taco mac, joes crab shack. a bunch of place with outside cafe dining which is so popular in summer all next to two major theaters, bowling and of course shopping.

if you like to cowboy disco boggie, go to 'cowboys' in kennesaw off of hwy 41 north of barret pkwy and I75

there are billiards to play pool off of canton hwy north of barrett pkwy

north point mall area has great restaurants and clubs which is off of 400 and mansell

well good luck and have fun
