The Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Christmas Parade is one of our holiday traditions. We’ve been going with the Borden family since our kids were in strollers. Nowadays, we pack the hand warmers, fill the thermos full of hot chocolate, grab the seat cushions and head out with whatever child is available. Here’s everything you need to know before you go.
Winter Holiday Fun
Here are seven ways you and your family can celebrate Christmas at Georgia Aquarium, plus two bonuses!
Have you been to Snow Mountain Ga? We love tubing at Snow Mountain within Stone Mountain Park, where every day is a snow day. You don’t have to wait for mother nature to enjoy some wintertime fun. Snow Mountain Ga is especially fun for younger kids or those who have never seen snow. It’s also fun for those Southerners who don’t normally get to play in the snow. There are lots of different activities from tubing to building snowmen to s’mores.
The Atlanta Botanical Garden lights are my favorite. Orchestral Orbs w/ 14 million different colors dancing to holiday music. A gorgeous 25 ft tall Ice Goddess and so much more, you have to see it for yourself.
There are so many holiday activities to choose from in Atlanta. Stone Mountain Christmas is one of our favorites. Spectacular shows, millions of twinkling lights, discount tickets & even a first class hotel to extend the holiday magic.
The Avalon ice skating rink is Alpharetta’s holiday ice rink. When done skating, there are tons of amazing restaurants to grab a bite. It’s perfect for an outing with friends or an awesome date night.

My family visited the Rock City Christmas fun at Enchanted Garden of Lights this year, and it was a blast! It’s something I had wanted to do for awhile, but we just hadn’t made it during our busy holiday season before. I’m so happy we made the time! It was a really fantastic time for all of us.
