Dad will not believe that this place has been here longer than he has! About 17,000 years of continuous record of human life in the Southeast has been preserved. This national park centers around several burial mounds and an earth lodge built by the native Mississippian Indians around 900-950 A.D. If your father loves history and culture, he will be in awe of what lies at the Ocmulgee National Monument.
Learn more about the Creek Indians and how they lived at the Ocmulgee National Monument.
Come in for a landing at the Museum of Aviation! Dad will love seeing one of the largest aviation museums in the Southeast with more than 100 aircraft and missiles. Strap yourselves into one of the open cockpits and have a blast in the flight simulator. No aviation experience needed, but you may want to bring a parachute just to be safe! Don’t forget to bring home his favorite tie or mug from the gift shop.
