A hayride rolls across 50 of Warbington Farms' 300-acres. Riders peer over the side as the tractor turns straight into a pasture where cattle graze and autograph cartons of milk. At the end of this agricultural journey, visitors can enjoy walks through the crisp autumn air, pet farm animals, and stock up on fresh eggs, jams, and ciders. Though a working farm behind the scenes, Warbington Farms prides itself most on creating these sorts of experiences for visitors. In Autumn, Pumpkin Palooza fills the grounds with live music and fall activities, including an inflatable slide and a sandbox filled with corn. Winter brings Christmas trees and visits from Santa, and the spring strawberry festival lets visitors pick their own morsels of fresh fruit.
In 1976, busy California mother Joan Barnes wanted nothing more than to find a play place where she and her kids could enjoy age-appropriate, educational activities. Finding none, she developed her own innovative play environment within a developmental-based program structure now known as Gymboree Play & Music. Today, kids tumble and learn in locations around the world, engaging in open play and classes designed to build cognitive and motor skills. As parents participate in their child’s development, their child learns to paint, play music, and interact socially outside of preschool knitting circles.
Two towers jut out of facing beaches, joined by cables that span an unusually placid portion of Lake Lanier. When New Wave Cable Park's small groups of customers suit up, however, the cable comes alive, towing boarders to and fro at blistering speeds. Nestled in a secure inlet surrounded by white beaches, the Park is sheltered from boat wakes so that beginners can acclimate themselves and can safely try out new tricks. A brand-new kicker box makes it even easier for boarders to grab some air and, for advanced riders, fistfuls of cloud.

At Jones Dance Ballroom Studios, dancers of all skill levels teach their bodies to spin, shake, and shiver with the self-expressing movements of multiple dance styles, including tango, foxtrot, salsa, samba, West Coast swing, paso doble, merengue, and beyond. Up-and-coming motion maestros can begin their journey to stardom and dancing with a pair of private lessons ($37.50 each). During both of the half-hour twinkle-toe tutorials, a skilled, supportive instructor will work one-on-one with you and carefully teach your feet how to woo the haughty ground with the stately swirls of a Viennese waltz, the dazzling blur of the quickstep, or the swiveling bobble-hips of the cha-cha. Once they've learned how to light up the dance floor with controlled-burn fires, students can showcase their sizzling steps to new dance partners during a 60-minute group class ($15; check the calendar for more information about specific classes and times).
