OTP Bucket List

OTP Bucket List

Apr 13, 2015

By Suzanne Taylor These days, everyone seems to have a Bucket List. If you live in the suburbs of Atlanta, you’ve most likely gone downtown for the big attractions: the Georgia Aquarium, World of Coke, CNN and the various art and history museums. But we know there are some exciting and unique places to see OTP, too! We’ve compiled your suggestions and added some of our own and made this OTP Bucket List. Enjoy! For those who stop and smell the roses: Check out Gibbs Gardens in Ball Ground, especially during the spring when 20 million daffodils bloom, but it is absolutely beautiful other seasons as well. Smith Gilbert Gardens in Kennesaw is a smaller, serene garden that is truly a hidden gem. They have an impressive Bonsai Tree collection, statues, and more than 16 acres of trees and flowers. If you enjoy a leisurely drive, Barnsley Gardens in Adairsville is another beautiful place for flower enthusiasts to visit. For the water lovers: Shoot the Hootch on the Chattahoochee River. Raft, kayak, paddle, tube or SUP your way down the Chattahoochee for an experience that will make you feel like Shoot the Hooch Scoop OTPyou have left the big city, even though you are just minutes from Atlanta. Rent a boat and enjoy Lake Lanier. Stop by Sunset Cove at Lanier Islands Lanierworld to experience a “floatilla” boat & sunset party! For a smaller lake, you can also enjoy a boat rental on Lake Allatoona. For the whole family: Tanglewood Farms in Canton. This 10-acre, kid-friendly farm is home to 150 different miniature animals. Tanglewood Farms is a perfect place for children’s birthday parties, too! Seasonally, you can pick Strawberries at the 3-acre Warbington Farms in Cumming. Downtown Blue Ridge GA Scoop OTPThe Blue Ridge Scenic Railway offers a Fall Foliage & Polar Express train ride, as well as some other family friendly scenic train rides through beautiful Blue Ridge Georgia.
