Choose your path and challenge yourself while secured to the patented overhead safety system. Explore the quarter of a mile course while mastering suspended wooden bridges and other obstacles. Leap from one wooden slat to another. Balance on a single rope high above the ground, or climb to the top on vertical net bridges. You have control of your trek as you pick from a 12-foot high trail for beginners, a 24-foot high trail for those who are somewhat courageous, and the super challenge trail at nearly 40 feet (or 4 stories) up in the air! Requires reservation

This is our favorite spot to eat. If you like fried blue crab then this is a must visit, they are not stingy like most other buffets. Most people comply with masks and gloves when not eating. In my opinion this is the best Buffet for the money in the area.

Pack up a snack pack grab a convenient chill out spot and people watch, or visit with an empty stomach and grub at one of the cool restaurants. If the weather is good you can catch a live performance on the weekends. Decatur Square has a good vibe no matter day or night with great food choices. And my dog likes it here too!

This is my go to spot when I'm having large gatherings that like sea food at my home. I've never eaten in. Their sea food is exceptional with tasty seasoning choices. I highly recommend.

OK if you like Soul Food then this is the spot. Their food is way above average and is the best Soul Food I've had in ATL. Not so great for dinning in but worth the trip if you don't mind bringing it home.

This spot is one of my favorites, except for the time when my dog and I got lost! That was before smart phones... Lol.. Explore a land that has taken 400 million years to form. The Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area lies just east of Atlanta along I-20. Dominated by two granite outcrops, it offers natural wonders, compelling history and heart-pumping activity. A vibrant history, breathtaking beauty and intriguing cultural changes from early settlers to immigrant rock cutters, freed slaves and Trappist monks.
