Kartin' Around KENNESAW
Who doesn't get excited about the sound of a train whistle? It signals adventure, travel, and, at the very least, some old-timey fun. Check out some dated choo-choos (for those of you over the age of 5, I am referring to trains at the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History). Around mid-April, get crafty at the Big Shanty Festival, complete with food, crafts, vendors, a play area for children, and performances by local community members. If you're looking for a solitary adventure, trying hiking Kennesaw Mountain. For a more low-key way to reflect while in nature, take a stroll around the Smith-Gilbert Gardens, which has 16 houses and over 3,000 types of plants, shrubs, and trees. It also housses 30 pieces of art from internationally known artists.Dive into your night at Diamond Dave’s Nightclub. But be ready to take your partying seriously as the venue has a dress code. Lastly, enjoy a little jazz, blues, or even a bit of comedy at Cave Tapas & Lounge Bar.
