Antiquing is popular in Monroe, Georgia, and visits to Vintage Revival Antiques and to Ian Henderson's Antique Mall are common. Golfers head to the Providence Club, while history buffs tour the William Harris Homestead and art lovers visit the gallery at the Monroe Art Guild. Childer's Park offers a place in the heart of the city to get some outdoor exercise.
Vintage Revival Antiques is a consignment shop where people put their personal property up for sale and the store keeps a percentage. In Monroe, this means it's possible to find anything from Civil War memorabilia to antique sea chests. Ian Henderson's Antique Mall is a collection of small vendors and, with 100,000 square feet of floor space, bills itself as the World's Largest Antique Mall.
The Providence Golf Club offers memberships but also allows public play. Members have access to tee times before the general public, which may be booked online. The 18-hole course is in a woodland setting and is scenic but challenging.
The Monroe Art Guild offers tours and exhibitions throughout the year, while the William Harris Homestead, on the National Register of Historic Places, offers on-site tours. Childer's Park, covering 17 acres, has over a mile of walking trails with strategically placed benches and picnic areas.
