4 Fall Family Fun Activities at Historic Banning Mills
Some of the best views this fall can only be seen from great heights, which is why your family should break tradition by trading mountain tops for treetops. Historic Banning Mills is an outdoor adventure resort with over ten miles of ziplines, a plethora of aerial adventures and a new addition, the longest hiking suspension bridge in North America. The bridge gives guests plenty of vantage points to enjoy the fall foliage. For an “untraditional” way to indulge this fall, head to Historic Banning Mills for its unique fall offerings. It is located in Whitesburg, GA, only 45 minutes west of Atlanta.
Spooks for Screams
Pass on the tour of the haunted house for an adrenaline-filled experience with a zip line tour that reaches speeds up to 60 mph. Banning Mills is home to the world’s longest continuous eco-canopy zip line tour that will exceed thrill seekers’ expectations with its varying zip line levels and speeds.
Log Cabins for Treehouse Rooms
Set 70 feet above a rushing gorge and tucked away in the trees for an unobstructed view of the changing season, Banning Mills’ treehouse rooms offer great views and cozy comforts. While this treetop accommodation blends in with nature, it does not diverge from modern comforts with a jacuzzi tub, coffee machine and fireplace for guests to enjoy.
Mountain Climbing for Rock Wall Climbing
Home to the world’s tallest free-standing artificial climbing wall, Banning Mills offers guests incredible vantage points of the fall foliage. With a variety of routes offered, climbers of varying skill levels can pick their path. Adventurers can also take a leap of faith off the side with Historic Banning Mills’ Power Freefall, a 100-foot drop.
Leaf-Peeping for Extreme Leaf-Looking
For a unique way to leaf-peep, Banning Mills provides guests a bird’s-eye-view of the trees on its ten miles of zip lines. For a more interactive experience with nature this fall, choose between varying tour levels that range from a relaxing zip through the trees to an adrenaline-filled rush at nearly 60 mph. Guests can even take it a step further by zipping head-first (like Superman) on The Amazing Flight of the Falcon.
