Spring Break: Staying or Going, We're There!

By Heather NealPosted March 27, 2012 3:43pm (EDT)

Here’s hoping your favorite color is yellow as the entire state is bathed in it! Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) put together a very helpful podcast on "Travel Tips for People with Asthma" just in time as Spring Break begins all around Georgia. Even folks without asthma have had a difficult time with this year’s record-breaking pollen counts.

While traveling around Georgia during your Spring Break, you’ll have an opportunity to interact with GPB. The Savannah Music Festival kicks off this weekend and GPB will the there all weekend to celebrate Georgia’s proud musical heritage and talents. If you’re anywhere near Savannah this weekend, take advantage of the opportunity to indulge in Georgia’s musical culture.

If the pollen and gas prices have you sticking close-by for a staycation, there are plenty of options that will ensure happy family time. Dr. Henry Louis-Gates, Jr. is back with Finding Your Roots, a new series that “get[s] into the DNA of American culture.” In each one-hour episode, Dr. Louis-Gates takes viewers along for the journey with one celebrity pair bound together by an intimate, sometimes hidden link, treks through layers of ancestral history, uncovers secrets and surprises of their family trees and shares life-altering discoveries. Settle in with the family and be inspired to discover your own roots.

If you’re ready to get outside, visit one of our non-profit partners like Imagine It! The Children's Museum of Atlanta's newest exhibit and tour Birdwell Island with Clifford and his friends.
