You did it! You’ve brought this little ball of light into the world…now what? The question every new parent asks themselves can seem daunting, it’s a new adventure and no one’s told you where to start. The first year with a new baby can bring on a flourish of emotions, from overwhelming stress to consuming love, all at the same time. With so much to learn and so much to do, it’ll feel like your baby’s first year is flying by.
Every parent, new and seasoned, understands how precious the time they have with their child is. They don’t stay little forever – as hard as we try to find that magical serum to keep them from growing – and we want to cram as much love and excitement into their little lives as possible, making an abundance of memories along the way. To make this feat a little easier, we’ve gathered some of the best activities to do in Atlanta with your baby before their first birthday.
Take a Walk Through the Peachtree Road Farmers Market
For more than a decade, local farmers have enjoyed their Saturday mornings at the Peachtree Road Farmers Market. As one of the largest producer-only famers market in Georgia, it’s a unique opportunity to get some of Atlanta’s freshest produce and baked goods for you and your little one to snack on. Take your new goodies, free water and sunscreen, and enjoy a picnic on the green right next to the Market. Your baby will love the fresh air and interacting with the people and puppies walking by.
Visit the Georgia Aquarium
Taking a trip to the Georgia Aquarium is a great way to escape the heat and sink deep into the underwater wonders. Your baby will stare in awe at the great manta rays and giggle at the playful otters and seals. The aquarium also offers special activities for little ones on the first Monday of every month for your baby to get an immersive and educational experience. With dolphin shows, thousands of fish and other aquatic critters, there’s plenty to enjoy for you and your baby.
See the Animals at Zoo Atlanta
Zoo Atlanta offers a variety of animal attractions to visit, like the new African Savannah exhibit where your baby can see live elephants and graceful lions sauntering about. Cool off in the splash fountain zone or walk over to the petting zoo, where you and your baby can get a closer look at some of the smaller, cuddlier critters like goats and sheep. Take a break from all the walking with a ride on the Zoo Train, where your baby can experience the excitement of a real train ride while taking in the sights of the zoo.
Beat the Heat with a Sweet Treat from King of Pops at Ponce City Market
Ponce City Market offers a variety of shops and restaurants for everyone to enjoy. One of which is King of Pops, a popsicle company that creates amazing flavors for every pallet, like strawberry lemonade, fresh Georgia peach and banana pudding. Your little one will love the cool and soothing relief of a King of Pops popsicle on their teething gums, and you can enjoy one of their delicious boozy slushies.
