As usual, the weather here in Georgia is about as unpredictable as the presidential nominees. Today it’s raining, yesterday it was snowing, and Fox Five Atlanta says there may or may not be a slight chance of meatballs-err hail approaching this afternoon. No matter what the predictions, you can’t help but notice that there is a refreshing change in the air.
The birds are chirping, and the sun is shining a little brighter than usual. This can only mean one thing… Spring is arriving! This is our favorite time of the year because after a sluggish Winter, everyone starts to come back out and play. Here are 10 Activities to do around the city that you and your family will love this March.
1. We at The Red Door love poetry and on the first Wednesday of the month, you can come out and see some amazing performances with the Reflective Soul Series. Our next event will be April 1st. In addition, Open Mic Poetry at Urban Grind takes place every Thursday and invites you to share your best thoughts to the audience. Includes March 5, 12, 19 and 26.

The musical score blends hip-hop, jazz, blues, rap, R&B and Broadway. Hamilton will be in town from March 31-May 3.
