From Mother's Day to Memorial Day, we'll be finding fun things to do all month long—May the 4th be with you!

Head outdoors this May in Atlanta for some sunshine, warmth, and opportunities for kids to get out their wiggles. A great spot to burn off energy? The Big Bounce and Slide event at the Cumming Fairgrounds. With over 85 inflatables, including giant water slides and obstacle courses, your little bouncers will have a blast and, if all goes well, crash at the end of the day. Pick a weekend in May and hit the Georgia Renaissance Festival, which has tons things to do for kids (think rides, games, and amazing shows).

Feeling like a family vacay could do everyone some good? We have you covered with ideas in our Atlanta Family Travel Guide, including a list of 14 Kid-Friendly Spa Resorts and Hotels Near Atlanta. Find more top May fun in our guide to the Best Swimming Lakes and Beaches Near Atlanta and our Spring Bucket List.
