Atlanta, a different kinda winter
It’s not the heat that gets you, it’s the humidity we say in Atlanta. All summer long the a/c works overtime keeping the metro area cool and dry. BUT winter in Georgia affords its residents the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors without freezing. It’s a different kinda winter wonderland.
SOUTHEASTERN ANNUAL FLOWER SHOW: Where else but the south can you hold an annual flower show in February? The Southeastern Annual Flower Show celebrates a milestone 25th anniversary in 2013 at Cobb Galleria this time. While the location isn’t downtown the trip from Riverside Townhomes in Austell or anywhere in the metro Atlanta area is well worth it if you love plants in their full bloom beauty and need your winter fix. Contact the Southeastern Horticulture Society for details.
SNOW MOUNTAIN at STONE MOUNTAIN: The weather man says it will be sunny with a high of 55, what do you do? Head over to Stone Mountain Park where they have created a true winter wonderland without the frosty temperature. The entire family can take part in a multitude of snow based activities with areas dedicated for smaller children and kids at a heart. Maybe warm up at SnoFire Point with hot cocoa and s’mores.
ICE SKATING at CENTENNIAL OLYMPIC PARK: What guests don’t find at Sno Mountain is ice skating, but the ATL has you covered. Just $10 gets you time on the ice and skate rentals at Centennial Olympic Park. Open until January 27th the rink offers student and group discount specials.
Experience warm tropical environments or bust out the winter gear from storage. A different kinda winter awaits you here.
