One of the best things about being an Atlanta mom blogger is that I have a legit excuse to stay current with my favorite Atlanta attractions. It seems like I'm always planning my next family outing, which really makes me super happy. Come to think of it, the same goes for my new position as a Walt Disney World specialist on the Disney Parks Moms Panel -- I can stay current and visit as often as I can, all in the name of research. It's a win-win situation!
Atlanta is especially beautiful in spring, with bursts of color and restaurant patios just waiting to be filled. So without further ado, here are my top picks for family-friendly Atlanta attractions in April 2015.
Atlanta Family-Friendly Events And Attractions In April 2015
- Atlanta History Center - Sheep to Shawl is baaaa-ck! Visit the Atlanta History Center on April 11 for this legen-dairy event that takes guests through the process of turning wool into woven cloths.
- Atlanta Botanical Garden - Atlanta Blooms! with more than 300,000 bulbs this month at Atlanta Botanical Garden, making this month the perfect time to explore this colorful urban oasis.
