Spurred by a desire to connect with other adventurers sharing his passion for exploring wilderness territory, Reginald Mitchell began leading hiking trips throughout Georgia and the Southeast. Though he regularly helms mountain-climbing excursions on local slopes such as Kennesaw Mountain and Amicalola Falls, he's also traversed mountains in areas as disparate as Tennessee, California, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and Middle Earth. Sandwiches and trail mix fuel hikers on most tours as they enjoy hiking's numerous health benefits, such as weight loss, endurance building, and stress relief.
The sounds of whirring pottery wheels, tinkling piano keys, and clashing swords form a symphony of creative energy at Arts of Cobb, a local arts center guided by religious principles. Owner Lauren McBride, a.k.a. Miss Lala, divides the center's offerings into four main categories—artistry, rhythm and music, theater, and special offerings (which include fitness classes). The selection offers something for just about everybody. Parents can enroll young children in music and art lessons that combine creative projects with open play time, or attend yoga or fencing lessons themselves.
