Family Activities

Spring is the perfect time to get out and about with the family in Smyrna. There are so many family-friendly activities to enjoy. From biking or hiking on a hundred miles of trails to watching home runs at Truist Park, Smyrna has something for everyone in the family to enjoy.


A Little Smyrna History

Smyrna was founded in 1872 and has a long and rich history. The Smyrna History Museum is located inside a reconstructed historic train depot from 1910 and is the perfect place to learn about Smyrna’s past. Exhibits begin when the Smyrna area was the ancestral home of northern Georgia’s Native American peoples and continues through the Civil War period to the present day.


Golfing At It’s Best

Golfers of all skill levels will enjoy the challenging and pleasant 62-par executive-style Cagle Course at Fox Creek Golf Course, which is located on the northern outskirts of Smyrna. This is one of the finest places to tee off in metro Atlanta, thanks to holes created by Larry Nelson and John LaFoy. The range features a 100-tee driving course that is partially illuminated at sunset, allowing you to practice your swing day and night. The Golf Range Association of America has ranked it as one of the top 50 public driving ranges in the US.


A Meal at McCray’s Tavern

The restaurant at this location is one of the city’s most popular hangouts. It goes above and above the traditional pub-style dining experience plus over 45 draught beers to choose from. The burgers here are some of the best in town!

No matter what you’re looking for this spring, Smyrna has something to offer everyone. Come out and enjoy all that our city has to offer. And, be sure to stop by McCray’s Smyrna Tavern for burgers, fries, and beer! What are you waiting for? Get out and celebrate spring in Smyrna!
