Take the kids to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame on Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard. Children under 16 are only $3.50, and kids under 3 are free. They are sure to enjoy the Billy Watson Music Factory, an interactive area designed to introduce children to various aspects of music and spark their interest in the different instruments. Hands-on exhibits include Giant Radio, where kids can watch themselves dance to Georgia music on a big screen TV; Big Band, which is a wall of giant instruments that allows kids to press a button to hear which part of the song is played by a piano, double bass, violin, guitar, drum, xylophone, tambourine, or guitar; Style Matters, where kids can hear traditional songs in different styles, such as jazz, salsa, or symphonic tune; and Music Gallery, where kids can play various instruments, including using their feet to play a keyboard built into the floor.
For outdoor fun, take the kids to Central City Park, a 250-acre recreational area on Willie Smokie Glover Boulevard, off Lower Walnut Street. This is where they hold the Georgia State Fair in September, the Cherry Blossom Festival in March, and various concerts throughout the year. Visitors can always enjoy the seven softball fields and the Luther Williams Baseball Stadium; picnic shelters, tables, and grills; gazebos; playgrounds; a walking trail; and a skatepark.
