5 Things to Love About Serenbe
Serenbe, a rural planned community located south of the Atlanta airport in Chattahoochee Hills, has a chill vibe, even with the kids. There’s no hustle or bustle, just green spaces and places to experience culture, farm-to-table eats, and nature. Here are some top recommendations for Serenbe family activities for your next visit.
Seeing a play performed on an outdoor stage with the forest landscape as the set is a thrilling experience. Our trips to Serenbe have often been planned around the schedule of family performances at Serenbe Playhouse. Here, the productions are top notch, and actors in costume may greet you on your way to your seats! Tip: they’ll also happily pose for photos with starstruck young audience members.
Go on a one-hour horseback trail ride or arrange for a picnic ride with lunch included! The gentle horses and experienced guides of Serenbe Trailriding can take your family on a horseback adventure to explore the trails, forest and fields of Serenbe. Even new riders can enjoy the laid back pace of these adventures.
Shop the Saturday Farmer’s Market for fresh produce and handmade art, and enjoy chef demos, live music and kids’ activities. Or, book a brief farm tour (every Saturday at 1:30 p.m.) to see what’s growing at the certified-organic farm and learn how food makes its way to our tables. Adult tickets are $10, but children 10 and younger tour for free.
Camp Serenbe offers a nature-based day camp with outdoor activities like swimming, fishing, and trail hiking for kids ages 3-12. Kids can also participate in ropes courses, scavenger hunts, arts, crafts, and drama. Check the calendar for spring and summer camp dates. Or, book a Family Getaway package to stay overnight at the Inn and spend the day exploring while the kids are completely entertained.
Grab a nibble at the Blue Eyed Daisy, the area’s casual eating and meeting spot. The farm-to-table restaurant uses locally grown ingredients for breakfast and lunch, and dinner on select days. You can eat healthy here, but don’t miss out on sweet treats, especially the cupcakes, which were winners on Cupcake Wars!
