13. Tree Climbing in Atlanta





Remember how much fun it was as a kid? Guess what — it still is! And now that you’re all grown up, you don’t have to climb back down before dark. Turns out there’s no better place to try it than Atlanta, Georgia — America’s tree climbing capitol. Unlike the free climbing you did in your youth, you’ll use a rope, a helmet and a harness to make your way to the top of 100-foot-tall trees. Your kids will love it too! With their lighter weight and lower center of gravity, they’ll be giddy as they speed past you up the trunk. Many guided tours offer the opportunity to camp way up in the branches.

To plan an Atlanta tree-climbing adventure and learn more about the sport, contact the Tree Climber’s Association.
