Located just off Highway 575 north of Atlanta, the Country Inn & Suites By Carlson, Canton, GA is the perfect staging point for your family adventures.
Begin your day with a complimentary Be Our Guest Breakfast, with fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels and hot breakfast items that will satisfy any appetite.
Then catch some fresh air right in Canton with a visit to Etowah River Park. In addition to a great playground for the little ones, the park offers a path along the river – including boardwalks – that will let you soak in some of the scenery.
Next up, hop in the car and head south to Atlanta – about 45 minutes away – for shopping, some southern culinary delights, sporting events and plenty of other entertainment.
If you or the kids love animals you have two great choices. The aquarium is one of the best in the country with whale and dolphin shows and more variety of fish than you can imagine. Be sure to check out the whale shark feeding – a crowd-pleaser for children of all ages.
The other option is the zoo, where you can see lions, tigers and bears, of course, but it’s also one of the few zoos in the country where you can get up-close with Panda Bears.
Finally, if you’re looking for something a little more educational, be sure to check out the Martin Luther King Jr. Historical Site. You can visit a museum devoted to King and the Civil Rights era, as well as the house where he lived, the church his mother attended and the neighborhood fire station that was the first to have all-black members.
After all of that action, you’ll want to rest and relax when you return to the hotel, so grab a swim in the pool, borrow a book from our Read It and Return Lending Library or just chill in the room with the high-speed Internet access.
However you spend your time, you’ll find the Country Inn & Suites by Carlson, Canton, GA the perfect starting point for all of your adventures.
