Tiny Towne offers a fun and safe environment where kids can hit the open road. Colorful age appropriate indoor tracks highlight the replica of a small city where kids from ages 1 to 8 years can drive their own cars! Older drivers called “SENIORS” navigate the open road on the advanced Traffic Track. This real life driving experience comes with road signs and traffic signals. Tiny Towne is located at 2055 Beaver Ruin Rd., Norcross, and is open Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Entrance is free; prices vary per activity ($1/1 credit). Check website for specials. tinytowne.com
Your next vacation is right in Atlanta’s backyard! Cable wake parks are the most effective way for beginners, intermediate and high ability riders to get out on the water. It’s a great way to introduce new riders to the sport of wakeboarding and a very economical alternative to the tremendous investment required for a boat ownership and high gas prices.
