Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Step away from the traditional fall festivities of corn mazes and pumpkin patches and ignite the inner thrill-seeker at Historic Banning Mills for a weekend getaway in the trees. What better time of the year to zip, walk, and climb through the treetops than when the leaves are changing color and the air is crisp? This is the perfect season to “Fall” in love with zip lining.
Hidden in the beautiful and luscious hardwood forests of Whitesburg, Georgia, Historic Banning Mills has plenty of exciting things to offer, from zip lines to sky bridges, and aerial adventure courses to a 100 ft free fall, there are activities for guests of all adventure levels. Zippers can test the limit with 84 zip lines and three aerial adventure parks on property.
Soaring over the Snake Creek Gorge and through stunning old growth trees in a dense hardwood forest, adventurists will experience breathtaking views on a one of a kind course. Get up close to the colorful leaves and be one with the trees on one of Banning Mills’ Aerial Adventure courses. Guests will enjoy swinging, balancing and stumbling their way from tree to tree on the swinging planks, the Tarzan Slide and Loop to Loops without even touching the ground. These aerial adventures will keep the adrenaline pumping and hearts pounding, and is also a good way to see details that are not visible on the ground or from above.
While visiting during a fall getaway, guests have the option to stay overnight in a cottage or lodge room. For a more non- traditional experience, book one of the unique stand-alone tree house rooms. No more sleeping bags, instead, visitors will enjoy slumbering in the trees in a king size bed, with a jetted tub, and amazing panoramic forest views. So come on, pack the car and getaway for a weekend to Historic Banning Mills for a new and fun-filled fall adventure.
