Horseplay Enterprises galloped into existence in 2011 under the guidance of founder Marion Berry. With gushing pride in their family of animals, Marion and his own family of humans invite visitors of all ages to engage their inner explorers during horse-related adventures. Nature trail rides, for instance, explore the facility’s surrounding scenery. Each ride begins with a bit of training, which ensures riders remain safe and know how to roll up their horse’s windows should it start to rain. Marion and his staff also train the next generation of competitive riders with lessons in varying riding styles, and offer up a celebratory whinny with appearances at birthdays and parties.

Located in a historic train depot in Jonesboro—the setting for Margaret Mitchell’s Gone With the Wind—the Road to Tara Museum assembles memorabilia and artwork inspired by the novel and its classic 1939 film adaptation. Visitors can meander past reproductions of the costumes worn by Vivien Leigh or peruse the many foreign translations of the book. The voice of Fred Crane, who played Brent Tarleton on screen, narrates sights throughout the museum, regaling with behind-the-scene tales of the movie set and Clark Gable’s mustache wax. Regular tours extend the educational experience outside the museum walls, exploring Clayton County’s various plantations and historic battlefields still littered with cork pop guns and broken water balloons.
For all that South Side Riders does for people?from lessons to trail rides to children's pony parties?it's their horses that benefit the most. The saddle club rescues its horses from less-than-ideal situations across the state and trains them to become gentle, friendly animals that can fulfill the role of a riding companion or a model for saddle fashion shows. The noble steeds carry riders during lessons as well as trail rides, which either follow a path along neighboring streets on the Urban Ride or traverse acres of trails through Boundary Waters park.
Since its inception as a small park in 1990, Dixieland Amusement Park has grown to include more than 20 rides and attractions for kids and parents alike. From high-flying cable coasters to speedy go-karts, the park's attractions foster adrenaline-fueled joy, while the Digital Armory, a bustling arcade, transports visitors to a virtual world with motion sensors and laser tag. Dining areas pepper the park's walkways for between-ride snacks, and, come nightfall, fireworks fill the sky to entertain visitors and idling pigeons.
