Spring Break in Atlanta: Free & Affordable Family Fun

Spring Break in Atlanta

For many families, Spring Break means a week full of activities to keep kids active and parents sane. Putting the kids in camp may not be an option for you due to budget or time. Never fear! We have come up with ways you can still enjoy fun things to do during Spring Break with kids in and around the Atlanta area.

Atlanta Spring Break Guide: Free & Affordable Family Fun


Outdoor Fun

Outdoor Adventures with Kids

Get out and enjoy the nice weather while you can, before the scorching temps hit. We are lucky to have a plethora of local parks around our city. Pack a picnic lunch and make a day of it. Check out our 5 Family Favorite Outdoor Adventures in Atlanta for inspiration and more outdoor ideas.


Beach Time at Buford Dam Beach

Even though we don’t live on the coast, it doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy water fun on the beach. Granted, it may not be Hilton Head. But a quick day trip to Buford Dam Park beach will provide a full day of fun in the water for the whole family.


Indoor Fun

Story Times & Special Events at Your Local Public Library

Michael’s Make-It Take-It

At Michael’s Art & Craft store, every weekend kids can enjoy making an arts & crafts project. Each weekend will be a different project. Check out details on schedule and upcoming projects from our Michaels’ Free Crafts for Kids posts.


Indoor Playground in Atlanta

If you would prefer to stay indoors, an indoor playground or soft play area in the mall is a good bet for younger kids. Most will have a height limit, but on a busy day it’s best to keep an eye out for overzealous kids. Check out our list of Indoor Playgrounds in Atlanta post for more detail on locations.
