The Rock Ranch
Founded by Chick-Fil-A executive Truett Cathy, the Rock Ranch is a beautiful 1,500 acre cattle ranch located about an hour south of Atlanta in Upson County. It’s a place where families, school groups and even businesses can come to enjoy what we call “agritainment.” The Rock Ranch is dedicated to “Growing Healthy Families.”
A day at The Rock Ranch is packed full of excitement, fun, adventure and making memories. Train rides, zip lines, jumping pillows, cane fishing, paddle boats, and horse rides are just a few of the attractions that will make your day truly memorable.
Not only is the Rock Ranch dedicated to Growing Healthy Families, we’re also all about growing fresh produce right here on the ranch. Strawberries, blueberries and fresh corn just to name a few. It also offer fresh, grain-fed, hormone/steroid free all natural beef, raised right here.
Sprewell Bluff Park
This 1,372 acre park is a little-known gem on the Flint River and is the perfect location for a daytime getaway. A three-mile trail winds along the bank and up rocky bluffs, offering excellent views from high above the river.
For more than 25 years, Skydive Atlanta has given tourists the thrill of a lifetime. With less than 30 minutes of training, skydivers can suit up and feel the exhilaration of free-falling 14,000 feet at 120 miles per hour. www.skydiveatlanta.com
The Greatest Generation Park
The Greatest Generation Park, which fronts US Hwy 19 N, is an effort to create a passive park in the heart of the city. This 45 acre park project is dedicated to the memory of the “Greatest Generation.” The park is to serve as a living monument to the veterans and textile workers of the ‘30s, ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s.
