There is lots of adventure in Georgia, and summer is a hot time for discounts on heart pumping attractions. As the mother of a tween and two teen boys, we’re always up for an intense experience. Here are three thrilling Georgia adventures and some ways to save and keep your wallet cool.
Historic Banning Mills: Historic Banning Mills is an eco-canopy adventure with course names and thrills that make the roller coasters at nearby Six Flags theme park look like kiddie rides. Don’t miss the aerial adventure park. It’s a fun way to break up the zip lines by doing a high ropes trek. For the extreme adrenaline junkie, there’s the 100-foot free fall. The first step is the hardest.
- Historic Banning Mills Deal: Through 12/22/2016, get 10% off level 2 – 4 zip line tours. Just mention the Georgia Tourism discount for Banning Mills.
Durhamtown Plantation, Union Point, Ga.: Durhamtown Plantation is to my teens what Santa is to a preschooler. They get all giddy with excitement at the mere mention. My kids aren’t skilled dirt bike riders, but they enjoy riding the ATV’s and exploring America’s largest off-road resort’s 14 one-way trails. We haven’t tried the hunting or skeet shooting yet.
- Durhamtown Plantation Deal: Bring your kids to Durhamtown on July 25 for the 1st Annual Massey Kid’s Day. Kids 15 and under ride free with a paid adult rider. Get there early for a parent-kid race on the peewee track or stay late and do the mud obstacle course. Burgers, dogs, ice cream and watermelon will be served. Can’t make it in July? Get 50% off cabins & RV sites Aug. 1 – 31.
