Free family fun in Atlanta if there’s no green for Black Friday

See also

Black Friday deals are everywhere – it’s a great time to get in on some awesome sales, whether online or in-store.

But let’s face it: the economy is still very tight, as are many families’ wallets. Even the deepest-discounted items mean nothing if you simply can’t pay for it, or if your money needs to go elsewhere (mortgage, car note, insurance….)

So what’s a family in Atlanta to do Nov. 26, 2010 that only costs a little gas in the tank, a nominal parking fee, or maybe a few MARTA tickets? Here are four options:

  • Enjoy the shimmer and glimmer at the Holiday in Lights at Centennial Olympic Park. Now through January 3, 2011
  • Kids Bowl Free at Suburban Lanes in Decatur. Through Nov. 28, 2010, kids bowl for free until 6 pm.
  • Visit a neighborhood park or Georgia State Park. Bring along your bikes or conquer a path on foot. Take in what’s left of stunning fall color. Parking at Georgia state parks is $5.
  • Brave the malls without cash. Some may like to watch the hustle and bustle of holiday shoppers; others enjoy the vivid and detailed holiday displays. Try Mall at Stonecrest, or a Simon Mall property (Lenox Square Mall, Discover Mills, Phipps Plaza, etc).
