Crisp Saturdays in January should be spent enjoying whimsical winter activities in Cobb County. Fortunately, our new home neighborhood Gunnerson Pointe is nestled right between Kennesaw and Marietta, so you have premier access to two thriving Metro Atlanta cities! Here are a couple of spots that will make for a fun winter weekend while you’re exploring Cobb County. Read on to see why we think so!

Exploring Downtown Kennesaw

A coffee shop in Kennesaw

There’s just something about grabbing a warm cup of coffee to liven up a chilly Saturday morning. This area has grown so much over the years and continues to blossom with new local shops and restaurants. First up: you have to stop by Honeysuckle Biscuits and Bakery for their top-rated coffee and family recipe biscuits. Starting your morning at this eclectic coffee shop is sure to warm you up and get you energized for a day exploring!

Make Local Your First Choice

If you’re looking for a unique experience and a delicious treat, check out Frozen Cow Creamery. It’s surprisingly great for cold days! One would think an ice cream shop is limited to its summer attractions, but not this one. They offer a delicious ice cream Affagoto – an espresso drink made with any ice cream of your choice instead of regular cream. Let your taste buds get creative with one of their many options, like apple pie ice cream with apple crumb coffee and whipped cream. Check out other local eateries, like Trackside Grill, a locally owned and operated restaurant that is sure to please the palate. Kennesaw is full of unique and locally cherished restaurants that will give you a strong community feel.

Get Moving In the Coolest Park Around

Swift-Cantrell Park is arguably one of the coolest parks in Cobb County, and right by Downtown Kennesaw – making it the next ideal spot for your Saturday morning. This park is not only huge, it has a wide variety of attractions, like two large playgrounds, a splash pad, one mile perimeter trail, fitness station, skate park, and even Wi-Fi! Bring your kids, so they can enjoy the playground while you relax, exercise, or enjoy the free time with a book. Or, invite a friend and hit the trails for a scenic walk.

Discover Kennesaw Mountain

There are also tons of trails going up and around the mountain, so you have plenty of options for colder days when you need a milder stroll. Pack a lunch and take the family to hike the mountain, or picnic on the battlefield. You’ll find yourself meeting friends here for hikes, walking your dog, and spending valuable family time bonding and enjoying nature. Living close to the mountain is sure to inspire an active outdoor lifestyle!

Marietta Square Is Anything But ‘Square’
