Tired of being in the house? Planning a staycation? Looking for local things to do? Here’s a list of 10 fun things that are FREE to do in the Newnan area (note for my readers that are not local: most cities around the country have similar opportunities):

1. Visit the library! Coweta public library system has four great locations. Click HERE for locations. Newnan also has Carnegie library. Click HERE for this location.

6. Find a Newnan Rock! Hide & seek painted rocks around the Square in Newnan. Post your pictures and then rehide the rock or hide a replacement painted rock. To keep it going be sure if you keep a rock that you give a new rock! Note: the Courthouse Property is off limits. Click HERE to learn more. 

7. Get a book at a Little Free Library! “The worlds largest book sharing movement!” The concept is simple take a book, leave a book! There are quite a few throughout the county. Some of the more popular are at the DFCS office and at the local parks. For a map of locations, click HERE.

8. Drive over a historic wooden bridge! Red Oak covered bridge was built in the 1800s by Horace King and it’s just a short drive down the road in Gay, GA.  The best part is you can still drive over this historic bridge! There is also picnic tables and plenty of opportunity for hiking so plan to stay a while! Click HERE for more information!

9. Have a Picnic! This one is self-explanatory. There is so many great opportunities and places to picnic around the city!  And kids always seem to enjoy a picnic!

10. Sightsee at a hundred year old grist mill! A short drive to Fayette County and you can get up close with the 100 year old Starr’s Mill! This is a popular place to take photographs, picnic and dip your toes in the water. Click HERE for more information.
