While some kids have already boarded the school bus to head back to school, others are preparing to do so beginning next week.
There are plenty of children craving some fun this weekend.
Our roundup of things to do around Atlanta this weekend is full of family-friendly activities. But, don’t worry. We’ve included some activities that are perfect for enjoying some adult time, too.

The perfect summer day in Gwinnett
With Gwinnett kids heading back to school in less than a week, many families are probably struggling to cram in the last bit of summer fun.
And the best part? After visiting a lake and taking a spin in a modified golf cart at Tiny Towne, kids will probably be exhausted and ready to rest before heading to school on Monday.
Tour the eastside of the beltline during a free three-hour guided tour this Saturday. Only 25 cyclists are allowed per tour so register at beltline.org as soon as possible. The group will depart from Mountain High Outfitters at Ponce City Market at 9 a.m.
Peyton’s Pie, named after owner Nicholas St. Clair’s toddler son, opened in Suwanee last week. St. Clair said the menu for the new restaurant is “farm-to-table meets Neapolitan-style pizza.”
Visit the restaurant with friends or family this weekend and let us know what you think!
