Recently I realized that some local friends who live here in Barrow County had never been to my son’s hot spots over in Athens, which is a short, 30-minute drive away. So I wrote a column about our favorite places to go, and they also have FREE ADMISSION. You can click here to read the column, or you can just go straight to the websites of these places, which I’ve listed below for you. If you live around here, you don’t want to miss these places.
The State Botanical Garden of Georgia: http://www.uga.edu/botgarden
For Memorial Park, Bear Hollow Zoo, which is next to each other, and then also the Sandy Creek Nature Center, you need to go to http://athensclarkecounty.com/ and type in the name in their search box. It will take you to the page that tells you where and what these places are about.
Please tell me what your children’s hot spots are!
Note: If you are looking for other places to take your kids in Georgia (whether free or not), take a look at my Resources for Georgia Homeschoolers page. I am writing a column about each outdoor area and state park that we visit. It also includes information on indoor activities or field trips specifically for Georgia homeschoolers.
