Special thank you to LaGrange Chamber of Commerce for hosting me and sponsoring “5 Family-Friendly LaGrange Activities”
La Grange, Georgia is a family-friendly city located an hour and half from Atlanta. As the next location for Great Wolf Lodge (opening May 2018) the city will be the newest destination for families traveling with young kids. No matter what brings your family to this quaint Southern suburb, there’s so many family-friendly LaGrange activities. Check out some of my favorite must-do activities for young kids!
5 Family-Friendly LaGrange Activities
Go Back in Time at The Biblical History Center
The Biblical History Center is an archeological museum exploring the daily life of ancient times. The goal of the Biblical History Center is to help people understand the Bible and the ancient world in its historical and cultural context.
The museum offers daily activities specifically designed for children. The ‘Shepherds Bread Making Experience’ is a hands-on bread making class that shows kids how food was once made. Another favorite is the ‘Kid’s Archeological Dig‘ that allows kids to learn about the science behind archeology while digging for artifacts.
Super Saturday at LaGrange Art Museum
On the third Saturday of every month, the LaGrange Art Museum offers an afternoon of fun designed for families. Families can tour the art museum and explore different mediums of art design. The event provides a hands-on art activity for kids to take home. It’s a free event and hosted every month.
Explore Nature in the Gardens at Hills & Dales Estate
Completed in 1916, The Callaway family home graces immaculate gardens and is one of the finest historic homes in America today. Children ages six and up are allowed to tour the home. Their calendar includes several monthly kid-friendly events. From family picnics to story time in the gardens, a visit to Hills & Dales is the perfect opportunity to teach the beauty of nature.
Ice Skating at Sweetland Amphitheater
Each Winter, you can find ice skating as one of my favorite family-friendly LaGrange activities. Bundle up and enjoy the ice skating action, concessions, visits by Santa and the Sweetland Beer Garden- a heated tent serving local craft beer and wine. It’s a Winter wonderland that the whole family can enjoy. Ice Days costs $10 per skater for a 2 hours + rental.
Watersport Fun at West Point Lake
The West Point Lake area offers outdoor family fun. The lake extends thirty-five miles and reaches across the Alabama border. The area offers hiking trails, designated areas for swimming, boating, fishing, camping and bird watching. West Point Lake is also home to annual boating competitions and fishing tournaments. Spend a day on the lake and beat the Georgia heat with everything the area has to offer.
