Bursting with festivals and small city charm, Duluth, Georgia is more than just Atlanta's neighbor. Let your kids experience an adventure in art at the Hudgens Center for the Arts, catch a train at Southeastern Railway Museum, and bask in the sunshine at Shorty Howell Park.
Dig into creativity at the Hudgens Center for the Arts, where children can paint, draw, and sculpt in any of their seven fine arts summer camps or weekly workshops. Kids can learn about art used by different cultures all over the world and through history. Teens can take classes like Amazing Jewelry! and The Joy of Watercolor to discover other medias and help expand their artistic talents.
Pretend to be Presidential at the Southeastern Railway Museum, where you have a chance to stand on the train car platform that was once used by Warren G. Harding. Many historical trains are kept in and around the museum and kids can stand next to wheels that are bigger than them! This museum constantly hosts events, like a 5k fundraiser, photography competition, and preschool program.
Get active at Shorty Howell Park, where kids don't have to stop playing once the sun goes down. Thanks to lighted baseball fields, the park is open for children and adults of all ages from sunrise till 11 at night. The football field also has a lighted track around it, so you can go for a jog while the game goes on. Additional amenities include a playground for children, a lake, and grills for a summer cook-out with your family. Stretch out your legs on the 1 1/2 mile forest trail, where bicycle riders and walkers can get some exercise.
