Things to Do in Atlanta This Weekend: Science, Space, Holiday Events

Happy New Year, Atlanta. You've survived the gift-giving rush, Christmas and Hanukkah celebrations, and now can focus ahead to a bright 2020.

This weekend you can usher in the new year with a space adventure at the Fernbank Science Center, a nature hike in Roswell, even a toy adventure in Atlanta And that's just the beginning: Enjoy a makers club meeting just for girls, skating at a number of local rinks, and more.

Why not check out some final holiday happenings at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Centennial Olympic Park, and Stone Mountain before those events end their seasonal runs. Whatever you do, know your friends at Mommy Poppins Atlanta will be with you all through 2020.
