Time’s Almost Up: Fun Things for Kids to Do Before Going Back to School – Atlanta, GA

Your kids can feel it. They’re eating the steamed vegetables that were supposed to remain untouched on the dinner plate before looking over their shoulder and seeing the calendar tacked to the wall.

It’s marked in bold letters, big and dark enough for everyone to see: “FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.”

No more staying up late, no more Netflix binging. The time is near before your kids bury their faces in the books and begin another year of school. Trust me, it’s not fun. I’m starting my last semester of college in two weeks, and I won’t be able to enjoy my late nights watching TV anymore.

But, never fear. There’s still time for family fun to be planned. There’s still time for your kids to get out there and have some fun before they think the next nine months will never end. Also, it might be time to put that new 2015 Dodge Dart you just bought to the test.

Let’s take a look at some activities near Atlanta that can be considered fun things for kids to do before going back to school.

Six Flags Over Georgia

Ah, yes. The ultimate theme park filled with thrills and roller coasters… pardon me while I get over my continuous fear of roller coasters. But if you’re kids aren’t afraid, that’s good, too. Depending on where you are in the Atlanta area, it’ll take you about 20 minutes to get there. The new 2015 Dodge Dart features a horsepower-packed engine ranging from 160-184 pounds. It’ll get you there quick and efficiently. I’ll just stick to the water park, if that’s okay.

Catch an Atlanta Braves Game

Now that the playoff picture is unfolding, there’s a chance the Atlanta Braves won’t come anywhere close to making the postseason. That still doesn’t mean catching a Braves game shouldn’t be an option. If you go, though, you’ll need help parking with how much traffic there will be. The 2015 Dodge Dart offers the ParkSense Rear Park Assist system, so that it won’t be such a hassle to park and miss the first pitch. Turner Field is a sight to behold.

Watch a Movie At the Drive-In

When it comes to catching a movie at the drive-in, there’s simply nothing like it… especially with the right sound system. The Starlight Drive-In is probably the best to catch one of today’s top movies. A car that has built-in Bluetooth and a USB port is bound to have a great sound system, and that’s the cherry on top of the 2015 Dodge Dart sundae that’s already filled with great features.


With school inching closer to reality, Thornton Road Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram knows how important family fun is. If you haven’t considered getting a new 2015 Dodge Dart, you’re missing out. The starting MSRP of a 2015 Dodge Dart is $16,495.
