July is National Anti-Boredom Month, and Cobb County has plenty of activities to keep you from experiencing the summer doldrums. There are plenty of activities to be found in the area that don’t include visiting the bigger, and often more expensive, attractions that Atlanta offers. We’ve compiled a list of fun, mostly inexpensive activities to entertain your whole family this summer:
- Shoot the ‘Hooch by renting canoes, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, rafts or tubes, and spend a lazy day floating down the river.
- Host an Atlanta movie marathon and watch movies that feature our city or were filmed here. These include Gone with the Wind, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, The Blind Side and any Tyler Perry Films. See if you can pick out familiar scenes!
- For kids that are older, take an evening lantern-led walk through the streets of Marietta on a ghost tour.
- Explore Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and then hike Kennesaw Mountain.
- Take a run, walk or bike ride along the Silver Comet Trail.
- Visit Lake Acworth and the world’s largest inflatable water slide for an afternoon of fun in the sun.
- Take a tour of historic Marietta with the Historic Marietta Trolley Company for a more educational experience. Learn all about the Square, historic homes in the area, cemeteries and Kennesaw Mountain.
