Looking for something to do around Atlanta? Unfortunately, with COVID-19 hanging around, the number of local events has been drastically reduced. But that doesn’t mean everything has been canceled. Here are some things to do around Atlanta for those who are interested in getting out. But with things constantly changing, please confirm the event is still happening before attending and it’s best to always take a mask.
Jan. 15 & 16
Enjoy a double feature drive-in movie at The Springs Cinema and Taphouse. Conveniently order delicious food and drinks on their mobile app, and a runner will safely deliver your order straight to your vehicle. Tickets may be purchased online.
Monday, Jan. 18
Join Children’s Museum of Atlanta, in collaboration with the National Center for Civil and Human Rights, as they celebrate the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Explore his life and legacy on the Stage, at the Science Bar, and in the Creativity Café. The theme this year is Dreams for a Better World.
To commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Halcyon will host its second annual Halcyon Rocks! Participants have an opportunity to paint rocks with positive messages and uplifting designs before hiding them along the Big Creek Greenway for residents to find. Each guest is asked to donate at least one box of cereal to replenish the food pantry at The Place at Forsyth, which Halcyon will collect during the event. This free, socially distant event aims to spread kindness and give back to the community, two things the late Civil Rights leader did so well.
Through Jan. 18
Skaters are invited to glide around the popular rink at Atlantic Station amongst the twinkling lights and holiday magic of the West Midtown mixed-use destination. General admission tickets are on sale now for $15, and season passes are available for $60; skate rental is included with ticket price.
Hit the rink at Avalon on Ice! Due to new regulations & limiting the number of guests on the ice at one time, guests will need to book ice skating reservations in advance to ensure a skating time slot. Walk-ups are also welcome, but we cannot guarantee you will be able to skate at that time. Additionally, face coverings are required while waiting in line and while skating on the ice
Feb 14 & 15
