Man, I used to love taking long road trips to see some of my favorite bands. most of the time it was the results of seeing an awesome show near where I live and wanting to see the show again but in the next town or city. other times, it’s just simply because the band isn’t playing in town. of course, now that I’ve got my little boys, the priority of seeing a great band five or six hours away, isn’t as high on the list anymore. but one of my goals this summer is to take a little trip to Atlanta with my ten year old and see some shows.
You know, to have some sort of bonding experience with my son. and as you know, a road trip can do wonders for any sort of relationship whether it be father and son or among friends or even as a family. and Atlanta is a great city that I like to visit every now and again. I remember some great times visiting there back in my college days. some buddies of mine and I would drive overnight to meet some of our Georgia Tech friends to catch an Atlanta Braves ball game. and one time after a game, we were hanging out at a bar near the ballpark trying to think of things to do in Atlanta, when all of a sudden a close friend of mine, Mike, got bored sitting around and just striped down to his boxers and ran down the street cheering for the Braves just for the heck of it. kinda gives you a glimpse of the kind of guy Mike was, right? but anyway, the look on some of the innocent bystanders on the street was absolutely priceless. heh. now, I don’t think I’ll need to run down the streets of Atlanta in my boxers to bond with my son but I’m sure he’ll love seeing the recently built Georgia Aquarium while we’re there. and since I love drinking Coke, we’ll definitely stop by the World of Coca-Cola exhibit.
I’ll be using a website by Trusted Tours & Attractions to set up some guided tours of the city for my little son and I to enjoy. you know, whether you’re in San Francisco wanting an Alcatraz tour or just in need of some new family vacation ideas, the Trusted Tours & Attractions website is a great online tool to use when planning for your next trip. it’s something you may want to check out and see for yourself.
