Taking the kids to Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon

About

For a weekend adventure in the southeast United States that rivals the beauty of the actual Grand Canyon, if not the size and scope, Providence Canyon is a great option.  Known as Georgia’s Little Grand Canyon, Providence Canyon is a 1,103 acre Georgia state park near Lumpkin, Georgia, about two and a half hours southwest of Atlanta.  

With massive gullies and 16 canyons that tower as high as 150 feet, the views of the chasms, plateaus, cliffs, and pinnacles are spectacular.  Activities in the park include hiking and camping, along with full facilities, a nice amount of open space, and plenty of picnic tables to feed the family.

As soon as you enter Dia:Beacon with the kids their imaginations start to run wild
New York City, Northeast, Road Trips

Escape the chaos of NYC with a day trip to Dia:Beacon with Kids

Dia:Beacon is a contemporary art museum that rests on the shores of the Hudson River, conveniently located a short drive or train ride north of the hustle and bustle of New York City.  Past the well-manicured lawns and inside the modest building live a collection of impressive installations that stretch the limits of what you may expect to find in an art museum. The abstract nature, as well as the size of the galleries, are precisely what make Dia:Beacon an approachable art museum with kids.

Aside from the art itself, the journey to Dia:Beacon with kids either by road or by train along the Hudson River provides a welcome respite from the horn honking, occasional smells, and breakneck pace of the city.  Skirt along the Harlem and Hudson Rivers, watch the Columbia University crew team row about and gaze at the grace of sailboat gliding by. Upon arrival, the vast well lit galleries covering over three floors provide a great opportunity to simply exhale and engage the imagination.
