Daytrip Destination ~ Goats on the Roof Tiger, GA

Looking for a fun daytrip for the kiddos in Atlanta? Take a short ride up 985 to Tiger, GA and visit Goats on the Roof!

This unique destination is a cute little stop that includes two stores with a wide variety of merchandise, gem mining, and snacks - plus feeding the Goats on the Roof.  This is definitely a fun place to spend an hour or two checking everything out!  There are plenty of photo opps too so make sure you have your phone charged or your camera handy.

Let your kids become Goat Rangers! Buy goat food in either store; it is two cones for $1. Kids get a Goat Ranger sticker to wear.  Take the food outside and walk up the stairs to the balcony.  You put a cone of food into the can (attached to the wires) then pull the wires over to send the can to the goats across the driveway on the roof of the other store.  Then pull it back over and do it again! 

We saw goats crossing back and forth on this bridge the entire time we were there. They are always on the move!

All kinds of great stuff inside the stores! (including more photo opps). They offer handcrafted furniture, T-shirts, toys, Amish cheeses, candies and popcorn, handmade items, jams, jellies, sauces, and more.  Plus homemade fudge, baked goods and ice cream, and a little cafe that serves up hot dogs, burgers and sandwiches.   David tried the Nutella fudge with a Cheerwine soda and he was impressed! I had a chocolate chip cookie that was delicious, too. 

Another way to feed the goats is to pedal their food up a ramp to them! See the goat in the picture below? He is always waiting rather impatiently for the next cone of food to be delivered! 

Goats on the Roof is located at 3026 Hwy 441 S  in Tiger, GA.  Visit them on the web here, or on Facebook here.

It took a little over an hour for us to get there from home (N. Gwinnett county), but it was well worth the trip! You'll also pass Tallulah Gorge State Park and Lake Rabun, if you are up to exploring the great outdoors.

On the way home we stopped by Jaemor Farms, which is located right on the same road (Cornelia Hwy, which turns into 441 going North and 985 going South).  Picked up some gorgeous Georgia peaches, tomatoes, peach preserves, plus some homemade strawberry ice cream for David.  Yum!

So this summer, if you find yourself with nothing to do, or the kids are saying they are bored, hop in the car and head up 985! It's a fun little trip that they will love. Trust me - they will never forget the day they fed goats on a roof! Making memories and spending time together is what it's all about, y'all!
