Atlanta has been reopening, safely and slowly, sometimes stepping back to evaluate the situation. In September, you will find many open parks, new restaurants, and fun events to enjoy with the whole family and forget your worries for a moment (except, of course, following the acceptable preventive practices like social distancing). Keep reading this blog to discover exciting things to do in Atlanta. We’ll leave for you the official websites of some places, hoping that you will check them out and learn about each spot’s limitations.
Most museums are open in Atlanta but are following strict preventive measures like reduced capacity and a timed ticket system to reduce crowding indoors. Indeed, this is an excellent option for having a calm and enriching afternoon because the city has many state-of-the-art cultural facilities reopened after months of inactivity. Check The High Museum of Art on Peachtree Street, The Tellus Science Museum on Tellus Drive Cartersville, or The Atlanta History Center on West Paces Ferry Road. Plus: these museums sometimes have free admission for Bank Of America cardholders.
Takeout and delivery service remain as the default for restaurants during the pandemic; however, you can find excellent places with patio or dining room service to stay safe while you enjoy your meals. But not only have existing culinary businesses and eateries in the city survived the health crisis but also new places have opened with excellent menus and safe protocols. Some of these new restaurants include Cubanos ATL, a sandwich and coffee shop on Roswell Road, a Persian, Turkish and Israeli place called Delbar Middle Eastern and Outrun Brewing Company, an eighties-inspired brewery on E Mountain Street.
Several parks are open to the public and even with pools operating on weekends. This is good news for the residents who love to enjoy summer’s last hot days with a small splash. Briarwood Park and Blackburn Park are some of the most complete and popular parks in the area, having multiple areas for picnics, playgrounds, trails, sports fields, gardens, and many more features. Please consider researching on the official website to ensure that all the areas are open to the public.
If you’re looking for some old-fashioned, face-to-face experiences, many Atlanta events follow the preventive measures to avoid COVID-19. During September and October, you can enjoy the garden Grooves in the Atlanta Botanical Garden, a family-friendly happening with limited attendance and well-trained staff, and of course, fun musical experiences for families to sing and dance. Also, The Kickback at Atlanta Food Truck Park promises a night of music, food, and entertainment for everyone. The fun happens in the parking area so everyone can stay and eat in their cars safely, every Friday night, until October 2nd, although be mindful of the crowds.
If you’re looking for free things to do in Atlanta, indeed, a few of the previous options will please you. Whether you choose a simple picnic afternoon with your family, visit some of the new restaurants, or attend one of the September events with friends, remember to stay safe and practice social distancing and good respiratory hygiene.
