April Things to Do in Atlanta

The Spring is here and we have all the happening events around the city! Whether you have a few hours or days, we have curated a list of super fun things to do in and around the city. These events are family friendly, and some are even FREE! From historic sites and scenic outdoor green spaces to live music and great vibes. One of my most favorite times to get out in these ATL streets is the Spring and Summer. The weather will be just right and filled with all the gorgeous blooming flowers, and sunshine. I love this city! I love seeing cities like Atlanta take interest in the people, and these events are all about the people! Even if you aren't originally from Atlanta, the city welcomes you with open arms. Atlanta is my home away from home.

Enjoy the serene beauty of this wonderful city this Spring with these events and much more. Like, save, and share with your crew! Each and every month we will be featuring a list of all things happening around the city. Have an event you want us to feature, send us a message!
