If you are visiting Austell, be sure not to miss these local attractions:
It is impossible to talk about Austell without mentioning its primary attraction — Six Flags over Georgia. This theme park was the second Six Flags to open, and has been in continual operations since 1967. Visitors to the park can enjoy Six Flags’ 11 roller coasters, ranging from the classic Georgia Cyclone and Great American Scream Machine wooden coasters, to more hair-raising modern coasters like Goliath and Batman: The Ride. Other notable attractions include the Acrophobia freefall tower, and a carousel listed on the national register of historic places. Add in a number of kids’ rides including the Whistlestop Park area and the introduction of Hurricane Harbor waterpark in 2014 means that Six Flags Over Georgia is a great venue for family fun and excitement.
Looking for a relaxing day on the links? Dogwood Golf & Country Club should have just what you’re looking for. This classically styled semi-private course is open to the public Monday-Thursday, and provides a straightforward yet challenging 18 holes.
If you’re interested in checking out a unique historical spot, head down the road and visit the famed Lithia Springs. Named for the lithium carbonate found in the water, locals and visitors believed these springs had special healing properties. Stop by the visitor’s office to learn about the springs’ days as a health resort in the late 1800’s, and check out the recently unearthed frog rock, which archaeologists believe may have been an ancient tribute to the restorative powers of Lithia Springs.
If you want to enjoy some fresh air and Georgia’s natural beauty, don’t forget to plan a trip to Sweetwater Creek State Park. Choose from several hiking trails and walking paths through the woods, or fish and relax by the creek. Try out a hike on the red trail for great views of the winding creek. Make it far enough up the trail and you can explore the ruins of a textile factory in use during the Civil War. Don’t forget to stop by the visitor’s center on your way in or out to learn more about the area’s local history and learn about some of the animals that still call the park home.
