It’s June, and you know what that means? Summertime! (Ok. So the first day of summer is technically at the end of the month, but we’re going to celebrate now anyways.) Some of you are still taking courses this summer, but hopefully you can take some time away from the books/classrooms/labs to enjoy one of the many attractions in our area and see what metro-Atlanta has to offer. If you’re sitting at home bored, wondering what you should do this summer, let us help! We created a summer bucket list to help and inspire you for your summer adventure! (Reminder: Always check to see if there is a student discount when ordering tickets!)

• Do you love rollercoasters? Has it been a few years since you’ve visited Six Flags? Take a ride on the wild side this summer, and visit Hurricane Harbor if it get too hot!

• Make a splash! Visit White Water to cool off and beat the heat!

• Stop and smell the roses! Visit the Atlanta Botanical Gardens!

• Take a hike, literally! Explore some of the awesome trails we have here in Georgia.

• Cool down with a breeze while zip-lining through the trees! There are multiple options for places to zip-line in areas from Sandy Springs, Lake Lanier, and all around North Georgia.

• Bury your nose in a book! Check out your local library.

• Get your tomahawk chop arm ready and cheer on the Braves during their inaugural season at SunTrust Park.

• If baseball is not your thing, how about soccer? Atlanta United is in their inaugural season with home games currently being held at Bobby Dodd Stadium (Georgia Tech).

• Forget the Drive-In. See an outdoor movie at Atlantic Station!

• This one is always a classic. Shoot the ‘Hooch! There are areas all along the Chattahoochee River, but we prefer going around Atlanta or in Helen.

• Get out on the lake (or the “man made” beaches). There’s Lake Acworth (Acworth Beach), plenty of places on Allatoona Lake (including Red Top Mountain State Park) and Lake Lanier (and LanierWorld: Lake Lanier Islands and Waterpark).

• Visit Stone Mountain for the laser show! Its nightly and it’s FREE when you pay for parking!

• Catch a show (or movie!) at the Fox Theater.

• Take a day or weekend trip! Your options include but are not limited to: Athens, Chattanooga, Birmingham, Savannah, Nashville or Charleston. Just go! Google will be your friend here.
