14 Reverent Live Nativity Scene Locations Every Christmas Needs

Several years ago I decided we needed to do something that represented the real reason for Christmas, not just visiting Santa and riding the Pink Pig. So I set out to find one of the live nativity scenes around Atlanta. It wasn’t as easy as you might think. Now I’ve heard of several. If you know of other places to see live nativities around Atlanta, please post a comment. Don’t forget to wear warm clothes. All of these activities are held outside and free unless otherwise noted.

Snow Mountain Ga: Your complete guide for “snow much fun” [Video]

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.
