Things to do in Middle Georgia this Summer, Part II
One more week and kids in Middle GA will be singing, “schools out, schools out for summer!”. Ok, maybe that was my generation but it still holds true…kids will be home which means you need a plan to keep your sanity and keep them occupied. Below are several day trip outings you can take right here in our area that will be both fun and educational for kids of all ages.
Warner Robins Museum of Aviation -With nearly 100 aircraft, 4 buildings of artifacts and displays, a flight simulator, and a host of educational programs, this is an all day event. Bring a lunch or eat at the cafeteria and definitely wear comfortable shoes. Admission is free but call ahead at (478) 926-6870 for specific details on events or hours of operation.
