Welcome to Canoe Kids Online — CKO

In June of 2011 Smoke Signals launched a new column called Canoe Kids. The column that first month welcomed readers aboard the “USS What Are We Going To Do Today,” and we’ve been sailing to kid-friendly destinations ever since.

The goal was (and still is) to check out places within an hour of Big Canoe that would be fun to take your kids or grands. Indoors, outdoors, free, not-so-free, near and far ... we’ve been from Atlanta to Helen and all around North Georgia. My kid-testers check out a place and I let you know what they thought, and if it’s worth your time and money. You also get details like hours of operation, cost and other pertinent info, such as: pack a snack or use the restroom before you leave.

Due to popular demand, we decided to locate the columns that have run in print in a central location here on bigcanoenews.com. CKO will be updated with current columns, and the columns from past issues will be accessible if you are looking for a way to fill an afternoon.

If you plan an outing based on an idea from CKO, please be sure to check the establishment’s website for any changes in hours of operation, prices or other important information you may need. Also, if you have any questions or suggestions for a future column, my email address is: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

While we love our time exploring inside Big Canoe, it’s good to occasionally get off campus. Wherever you end up with your Canoe Kids, have a great time, and thanks for reading!
