The Christmas in Atlanta with kids is one of my favorite holiday. There are so many things we can do with our kids to create lasting memory as a family. We have posted several fun activities this past month but I figure it might be easier to put it together in a short list for you to skim through while looking for family-friendly fun this holiday in Atlanta.
Guide to Christmas in Atlanta with Kids 2012
1. Enjoying Holiday Light Displays in Atlanta
Many Atlanta attractions put on quite a show for the Holiday. Take the kids or guests who come to visit to check out one of many Atlanta attractions’ Holiday Light Displays from the free Christmas lights at the Centennial Olympic Park, the popular Magical Night of Lights at Lake Lanier Islands Resort to the Stone Mountain Christmas.

2. Driving by Homes with Christmas Lights Shows in Atlanta
For a less expensive, yet equally mesmerizing night, you can take your family for a drive to check out one of the homes we listed on our guide to Homes with Christmas Lights Shows in Atlanta. These are not your typical homes with a few strings on the front lawn. We are talking about serious homeowners who spent weeks preparing and putting up amazing show for the holiday and best of all they are free.
3. Visiting Christmas Tree Farms in Atlanta
Choosing and cutting your own Christmas tree can be a great experience for the whole family. Even if you don’t want to have a live Christmas tree, visiting the Christmas tree farms during the holiday can be fun since most will have special events and activities for kids.
4. Having Breakfast with Santa in Atlanta
Go out and celebrate the holiday season with breakfast with Santa and let your kids bring their wishlist to tell it all to Santa. Many places not only offer breakfast but also kids activities and crafts.
5. Fun time at Outdoor Ice Skating Rinks in Atlanta
Even though we don’t have to Rockerfeller skating rink like New York City but our outdoor ice skating rinks in and around Atlanta metro area provide equally fun time for families during the holiday season. Lace up your skate, bundle up with warm coat and enjoy the holiday fun with the whole family at one of the outdoor ice skating rinks this season.
6. Watch the Nutcracker Ballet Performances in Atlanta
