Best Things to Do in Atlanta in November with Kids

November brings plenty of things to do, as Atlanta gears up for holidays from Veterans Day to Thanksgiving and full steam ahead to Christmas. Don't miss our favorite kid-friendly events and activities in Atlanta this November!

Since November in Atlanta is typically cool (but not too cool), take the family outside at Lawrenceville's Harvest Festival the first weekend of November and Truck-a-Palooza at Town Center Cobb later in the month. Then it's holiday time with Garden Lights, Holiday Nights at Atlanta Botanical Garden, Atlanta fave Stone Mountain Christmas, and menorah lightings for the start of Hanukkah.

Since we're all thinking holidays, go ahead and book that Polar Express and Holiday Train Ride. (Our guide helps you narrow down your options.) We also have a handy list of The Best Advent Calendars for Kids for 2021 so the holiday countdown can begin. Find more November fun in our Fall Fun Guide for Atlanta Kids!  

We’re adding more events to our family activity calendar every day, so check it often.
