While your mind may be heavily-focused on conceiving a child, it shouldn't be your only priority. It's important to have fertility-free days and spend time with your partner, enjoying each other's company and doing things that excite both of you.
And even though Memorial Day Weekend may look a bit different this year, there are still plenty of fun things to do in Atlanta that can take your mind off conceiving, help you destress, and allow you to focus on your relationship.
Fun Things to Do Around Atlanta
Watch a Movie at a Pop-Up Drive-In
Atlanta’s oldest operating cinema — the Plaza Theatre — is streaming movies all weekend long at their pop-up drive-in! Choose from Mars Attacks, Groundhog Day, or Jaws — some timeslots are already sold out, so be sure to purchase your tickets ASAP. Feel free to come hungry, food is available for purchase from Southern Belle at Friday and Saturday night’s screenings.
Visit Some Animals
If you would rather spend your day watching sea otters and safari animals, Zoo Atlanta is the place to be. In light of the pandemic, Zoo Atlanta has enhanced protocols and procedures for visitors and staff. They’ve also transitioned to a timed ticketing system in order to limit the number of guests inside the Zoo at a time. Learn more about the precautions they’ve taken here and do be mindful of current CDC and public health recommendations.
Take a Walk on the Atlanta Beltline
With 1,300 acres of public parks and 33 miles of multi-use trails, on any given day the Atlanta Beltline trail is home to walkers, runners, bikers, and more! Take a stroll or grab a bite to eat with your favorite beer or cocktail at one of the many restaurants that have reopened for to-go orders. Here are a few to consider:
Learn Some History
If you consider yourself a history buff, you're in the right place. Downtown Atlanta is full of landmarks and experiences that pay homage to a number of different historical achievements and movements. You can explore Centennial Olympic Park or take a self-guided tour of Piedmont Park Conservancy. You can also take a virtual visit to the Atlanta History Center or Chick-Fil-A College Football Hall of Fame through ATL Museums at Home initiative!
Or simply, spend some time at home this weekend to honor and remember military personnel who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. Breakout some sidewalk chalk (like this Marietta woman has been doing) and illustrate a patriotic mural or donate flowers to a fallen hero through Memorial Day Flowers. From the team here at ACRM, we hope you have a relaxing Memorial Day Weekend.
