Your parents are visiting, and you need a few places where both they and your kids will have a good time.

No matter where you live in the metro area, there are plenty of activities to entertain those grandparents.

Heading downtown? You can cool off in fountain at Centennial Olympic Park or get a cool view of the city on SkyView.

If you live in North Fulton, check out Main Event Entertainment or the Chattahoochee Nature Center.

Cobb County residents will want to head over to Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History or the Big Chicken.

If your parents and kids both love trains, Gwinnett residents should take the family to explore more than 90 pieces of railroad equipment, restored freight cars, cabooses and locomotives at the Southeastern Railway Museum.

We haven't forgotten about DeKalb residents. Exploring ancient wonders and cultures at the Carlos Museum of Emory University is just one activity on our list.

With all the locations on our list, you'll never hear the kids (or your parents) complain about being bored during their visit.
