The Cartersville science museum is your pick for a family-friendly place to spend time on a staycation.
It appears that when you want to get away without really going away, you go to Cartersville. In this week’s regional Readers’ Choice survey of staycation destinations, three of the top four vote-getters are Cartersville sites: Tellus Science Museum, Pine Mountain Recreation Area and Booth Western Art Museum.

Support your local museum, park, historical site or other family location against others around the northwest Atlanta suburbs.
Memorial Day is only three weeks away, meaning summer vacation season is almost here.

You need entertaining options for the whole family, from parks to museums to historical sites. That’s what this week’s Readers’ Choice is all about. What’s your favorite place to go …
