A few family members have asked what they can get Eli for Christmas. Since his birthday is in November, I am running out of ideas. The kid already has all of the toys a one year old needs. He is set for clothing through the winter and into the spring. I started thinking about things that he might use next year, since there won’t be another gift-getting occasion for him until next fall. Then it hit me—Zoo Atlanta! Eli has already been to the zoo, although I am sure he doesn’t remember it. But in the spring and summer, he will be a great age to visit the zoo! I plan to take him regularly, so I might as well have a membership and go whenever we want! Then, I thought about all of the other places that offer memberships and might be a good addition to your Christmas list. Here’s what I came up with
Zoo Atlanta– Just $89 bucks for 2 adults and kids less than 3 yrs old, and $109 for 2 adults and 4 children under the age of 18
The Children’s Museum of Atlanta– Lots of options from $75- $145. Packages suitable for all families
Georgia Aquarium– Adult annual passes are $65 and kids passes are $48. A great place to take out of town visitors
Center for Puppetry Arts– Levels of membership range from $60-$1,000 and include many different benefits
Pool Passes– If your neighborhood does not have a pool, a pool pass to a community pool could be a great Christmas gift. Sometimes local golf clubs sell community passes to their club pools.
Stone Mountain– Passes range in price from $44-$99. Stone mountain is another great place to take out of town visitors. Membership to Stone Mountain gets you a discount at Dollywood, in Tennessee and Silver Dollar City in Missouri if you are planning a trip a little farther from home.
