School is back in for the older kids and we know it can be difficult to find things to do with the ones not quite old enough for day school. The good news is, there's plenty of things to do with your little ones in Macon.
There are thousands of acres of parks & open space in Macon to explore with your kids. Visit Amerson River Park's state-of-the-art playground & enjoy a picnic under the shaded pavilion or grab your bikes & enjoy the large, paved paths at Tattnall Square Park.
The Museum offers a wide variety of arts & science exhibitions, full-dome planetarium, Mini-Zoo with 70+ live animals, Discovery House, & more. They usually have educational classes for the kiddos during the day on a monthly basis as well.
Step back in time at this prehistoric American Indian site. Walk into North America's only reconstructed Native American earth lodge, bring a picnic, & let the kids tucker themselves out while they're exploring. Mark your calendar for their kid-friendly Ocmulgee Indian Celebration happening September 16-17. See more than 200 craftsmen, storytellers, dancers, living history demonstrators, & more at this annual event.
The third floor of the library, called the Children's floor, is the perfect place to enjoy some reading time with your kids. The Library also offers kid-friendly activities throughout the week. Check their website for the most up-to-date event calendar.
From their 6,000 acres of peach orchards & pecan groves, playground, & tractors to play on, there's plenty for your kids to do. In October, be on the lookout for their 6 acre Corn Maze, pumpkin picking, hayrides, & rubber duck racing.
