I’m a pretty big fan of Meetup.com, and it makes sense that if you are new to the Atlanta are and need to make some mom friends, this is the place to start. Having used that platform to start and grow the South Charlotte Playgroup which boasts more than 900 mom-members, I’ve found that it’s simple to create a playgroup, join an event, and get to know members.
When your talking about moms needing to socialize their children, that’s pretty awesome.
Here’s a collection of Meetup.com groups in your Atlanta area that might suit what you’re looking for if you need to get out of the house, make friends, and have fun:
