Take our Charter Bus to Smyrna’s Parks, Art Centers and Historical Landmarks
Smyrna had an early start as a tourist destination in Georgia, all thanks to a religious encampment called Smyrna Camp Ground. It was well known not just to everyone in Georgia but to those in surrounding states as well. It became even more popular after the Western and Atlantic Railroad was completed. However, the city was affected by the Civil War, namely the Battle of Ruff’s Mill and Battle of Smyrna Camp Ground.
The city has grown by leaps and bounds after the wars and today, it is ranked as the 4th best cities for Young Adults amongst all the cities in Georgia. The city also benefits from being in close proximity to Georgia’s largest city, Atlanta, and other surrounding neighborhoods of Sandy Springs, Marietta and Vinings. So, whatever you can’t find in Smyrna, it is definitely a short drive away in the charter bus in those surrounding cities. Smyrna has a nickname ‘Jonquil City’ because of the thousands of jonquil flowers that goes into full bloom during early spring. The city is also blessed with gorgeous flora and fauna and countless parks and outdoor recreational centers and they include Silver Comet Trail, Atlanta Botanical Garden and the historical Marietta Confederate Cemetery.

If time is of essence, let us help with a short guide on some of the city’s most significant points of interest and historical sites that we think you should check out.
- Entertainment & Amusement Parks — There is an ample number of recreational activities for kids and adults alike in downtown Smyrna. For instance, you can catch a movie, go shopping or have a meal at a favorite restaurant with your loved ones at Atlantic Station.

There are sometimes public and open jump sessions which are attended by kids and adults alike. There are smaller and safer kid-friendly areas for kids younger than three years of age.
- Art & Cultural — Sometimes, having a book, magazine or document in your hand feels more real than reading about a new city from the Internet. If those are your sentiments, check out the huge collection of magazines, books, DVDs, CDs and other printed materials available at the Smyrna Public Library. It is located on Village Green Cir SE and is Georgia’s oldest library. And although Smyrna Frame and Art Gallery provides picture and painting framing services, you should really make a quick stop to explore some of the paintings in its intimate gallery at Concord Road SE.
- Restaurant & Shopping — It is completely possible for your group to spend an entire day of shopping, eating and drinking in downtown Smyrna. After all, there is a myriad of retail outlets and department stores for you to wander around in and they range from Target on Cobb Parkway SE which offers gifts, clothes and plenty of products to choose from.

- Golf Courses & Sports Venues – If you are a fan of golf, now is the time to organize a group trip out to Fox Creek Golf Course and Driving Range. It has received countless thumbs up for its excellent driving range, elevated tees and good greens to practice in. Completing the course would require multiple skill levels so, it is great even for beginners. Presenting visitors with an excellent short course is Legacy Golf Links. There is a specific area designed for young children, beginners and intermediate golfers. Unlike golfing in other championship style golf courses, the atmosphere at Legacy Golf is relaxed and fun as visitors can put their putting skills to the test.
- Historical Sites & Landmarks — The Marietta Museum of History is located on Suite 200 and was built in 1845; it features exhibits that includes aviation and history of the region and state of Georgia. It first opened its doors in 2000 and ever since then, they have had no trouble pulling in the crowd that makes up the 140,000 visitors that they have entertained. Schools, colleges, universities and other educational organizations should make full use of their school tours that are organized every year. Be sure to check out the very meaningful mentoring programs if you are organizing a field trip to this historical site. The William Root House and Garden was built in the 1850s and have survived wars and stood under the flags of two nations, it portrays the middle-class life in the city of Marietta in the 1850s. It is the oldest surviving house in the city and will take visitors down memory lane as they explore this historical landmark that is an Old South icon. Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park is not just a historical site and landmark of the city, there are lots of hiking trails, park areas and bird-watching locations for guests to enjoy. There is also lots of opportunities to pick up some historical facts while visiting the Atlanta History Center on W. Paces Ferry Road. As you tour the site, you will get insight into the Centennial Olympic Games museum, garden, historical houses and more.The Centennial Olympic Park, in short, is a must-visit! It is, after all, where the 1996 Olympic Games was held and today, visitors will get to enjoy concerts and public events in a world class venue.
- Parks & Outdoor Activities — There are so many spacious parks to have fun in in Smyrna that it is impossible to list them all but if you are looking for a well-maintained running trail, head over to Silver Comet Trail where there is also lots of space for rollerblading, biking and walking as well. When you pay Atlanta Botanical Garden a visit, you will be stunned with each of the 19 gardens in the attraction and amongst them, you can find insects, turtles, frogs and geckos peeking out at you from their natural habitat. Piedmont Park measures up to nearly 180 acres and is a great outdoor space for walking, running, swimming, fishing, basketball and more. While it may have an attached dog park next to it, for a more dedicated dog park, bring the charter bus to downtown Smyrna’s Burger Dog Park and Lake Court Dog Park. Here, the dogs are off their leashes and off to explore and play with other dogs in the park. You can then languidly watch over your pet and enjoy the beautiful scenery as the sun sets in a distance. In Lake Court, show off your volleyball skills or have a peaceful picnic. Other options you can consider are Tolleson Park and Marietta Confederate Cemetery. The latter is the oldest Confederate Cemetery in the state of Georgia and the final resting place for more than 3,000 soldiers.
- Zoos & Aquariums — Since the Georgia Aquarium is only a short 20 minutes drive away from downtown Smyrna, we reckon organizing a kid-friendly fun day at this attraction is a fabulous idea. The aquarium features 10,000 square feet worth of exhibits with a large number of marine animals and wildlife; and don’t forget to check out its world class 3D and 4D theaters.
