Go Ice Skating

Ice skating is one of those activities that is fun for the whole family. From being a spectator to skating yourself, there is something special about skating when it’s cold out. One of our favorite places is Skate the Station Atlantic Station. This skating rink offers a little fun to everyone who comes with skating available, as well as being surrounded by local shops and activities. Located in Midtown Atlanta, this is a great stop when visiting our Luxury 55 plus community, Dunwoody Pines, or on your way through the state to any of our other incredible retirement communities in Georgia.

Visit Cloudland Canyon State Park

If your family is seeking an adventure, look no further than Cloudland Canyon State Park. This outdoor destination is located on the edge of Lookout Mountain in northwest Georgia, and offers camping, incredible hiking trails, and waterfall views. If hiking is not for you, the park offers several picnic areas with incredible views and easier accessibility. In addition to hiking and camping, the park has disc golf courses, fishing opportunities, and horseback riding. This is a beautiful outdoor destination year round, but especially on a mild winter day. For more information on the park, check out their website.

Visit Historic Savannah

This is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Georgia – and for good reason! Savannah is packed with history, beauty, and tons of southern charm. With ample opportunities to shop, explore, and learn about this city, there is no shortage of things to do while visiting. If shopping isn’t for you, the city is also host to incredible dining and unique restaurants. If you are looking for more ways to explore, you can find tours for the family. And if you’re feeling brave, check out one of the haunted tours in the city. Regardless of what you are looking for, exploring Savannah is at the top of our list of winter activities in the area.
