Today’s guide to fun things to do with kids in Conyers and Covington area is contributed by Kita Bryant, editor in chief of Kokoa Magazine www.kokoamag.com and a Conyers/Covington mom of 2 kids. We are thrilled to have her as part of our Atlanta Parent Squad.
I live in the country parts of Atlanta or what some would call the suburbs. We are far from the hustle and bustle of downtown life but we still want to know what there is to do on our side of town. Here are some of the things that my kids and I love to do that are not costly and a great way to save on gas and have a good time while meeting families that live in our own backyard.
Stonecrest Mall Play Area
We only have one mall that close to us and that’s Stonecrest mall located in Lithonia, Ga which is about 20 minutes from the Covington area. While you can shop until your heart is content, you can also bring your kids to the play area that is located in front of the Jcpenny store on the inside of the mall. The play area is free for the little ones and you can rest or just bring the kids for a good time and meet other parents. I have met 2 parents from the play area within the past year and we have become great friends.
Georgia International Horse Park
The Horse park is located in Conyers, Ga and has a lot of events that are open to the community. Not only can you enjoy some of the events but you can also ride horses and enjoy trails of greenery on any regular day the park is open. They have lots of fun activities for you to do especially during certain holiday seasons.
Monastery of the holy Spirit
If you are looking to renew your spirit or just find some peace make sure you check out the Monastry located in Conyers, GA. This is home to Cistercian monks for over 65 years, and you can admire the beauty of Bonsai specimens all while gaining some peace of mind in the process.
Downtown Covington on the square
Most Wednesday nights you will catch my family in downtown Covington catching the free concerts right after we eat at Amici’s where they have wings for 50 cents apiece. After we eat, we walk over to the square to enjoy the scenery and see what is going on. We also love to visit the shops in and around the square to support our local businesses.
I have no idea how to skate but that does not stop me from going to my local skating rink here in Conyers, Ga to enjoy seeing the kids try to skate. Make sure you check out their website for times and schedules .
