    Mei Lun and Mei Huan were born in 2013 to much excitement—the cubs are the only the second pair of twin giant pandas born in the U.S. The zoo also boasts the largest collection of gorillas and orangutans, though kids will likely be more impressed by the giraffe exhibit, where they can help feed the long-necked mammals their leafy lunch.

  • Little Vine Petting Zoo
    Whether cuddling a tiny spotted piglet, nuzzling a baby goat, or cradling a fuzzy bunny, it's nearly impossible to suppress affectionate coos during a visit to Little Vine Petting Zoo. The zoo abounds with creatures of all kinds, from gentle donkeys to soft alpacas to one spiny hedgehog. Ponies and horses trot down the trail with wee riders on their backs, guests can opt for hay rides, and take pictures inside of rustic stagecoach. Ambling down a tree-lined road, the farm’s colorful train transports guests around the area. The cheerful farm staffers also host bashes onsite and can travel for on-location parties, bringing along ponies and animals to delight guests at birthday parties or confuse bridesmaids at weddings.

  • Xtreme Xperience
    Built into the rippling foothills of Appalachia, Atlanta Motorsports Park hosts a world-class road course designed by famed Formula 1 architect, Hermann Tilke. Tilke honored the natural landscape with his 2-mile racetrack, weaving high-speed straights amongst steep elevation changes. He even included two signature turns, inspired by Belgium's Spa-Franchochamps and the 'Carousel' turn found on Germany's fearsome Nurburgring. Track members can test their private vehicles' mettle on the track at any time, pushing engines to their limits on professional-quality pavement. In addition to its professional-grade road course, the venue is also home to a world-class karting track. Open to all visitors, the kart course runs almost a mile, and features a stunningly-steep 43' in elevation changes built to Commission Internationale de Karting's Level A standards. The owners invite visitors to bring their own karts, but guests can always rent vehicles from the fleet. Each rental comes with a complementary helmet and driving suit to protect the driver from whipping winds, harsh sunshine, or point deductions in race's fashion show portion.

  • Yule Forest Pumpkin Patch
    Autumn might be the busiest time of year at Yule Forest Pumpkin Patch, but the farm actually celebrates all the seasons with U-pick events throughout the year. In summer, families come to the farm to pick sweet blueberries to eat raw or bake into pies; in winter, they head to the tree farm to pick a perfect fir, cypress, or pine for their holiday decorating. Of course, Yule Forest is a pumpkin patch first and foremost, and saves the best fun for fall. Pumpkins ripen on the vine and wait to be turned into jack-o'-lanterns or shot from the farm's pumpkin cannon. Hayrides escort riders around the grounds and to the fun zone where they'll find activities such as slides, horse races, and an obstacle course. Between stints at the talking chicken show or the pick-your-own sunflower garden, kids and adults can drop by the petting zoo to swap tin can recipes with the goats, or head to the bee house to learn about nature's busiest insects. Of course, no autumn adventure would be completely without a bit of spine-tingling fun, which is why Yule Forest Pumpkin Patch also hosts a haunted house attractions on weekends after dark only.

  • Pettit Creek Farms
    At first glance, Pettit Creek Farms looks much the same as other farms. Cows moo and goats bleat from the barnyard, while wagons full of hay and passengers trundle along. But then someone rides by on a camel. A zebra cranes its striped neck over a fence, searching for handfuls of oats, and KatieBird the emu ruffles her feathers at passersby. It's around the holidays that this unusual farm becomes its most active. In the fall, as the temperature drops and the pumpkin patch ripens, visitors can be seen perusing the squashes and heard trying to navigate the winding corn maze. And, come winter, the farm fires up thousands of Christmas lights, creating a mile-long wonderland for visitors to drive through.
