Weekend Laser Light Show is tons of Fun! – The laser light show is a great evening get-away from the city. I have tons of fun every time I go. It's great whether you're going with the family or with a group of college students.
Whether you visit for the touristy kitsch or the many recreational opportunities, you'll get a great view of Atlanta. – Overview
The world's largest hunk of exposed granite features a giant relief sculpture of Confederate leaders. A Civil War museum, two hotels and a huge recreational spread draw scores of visitors. The restored antebellum plantation, scenic railroad and paddlewheel boat are popular. There's also a Great Barn, which mixes physical activities such as rope-net climbing with an interactive fruit-harvesting game. Crossroads, a re-creation of a small Southern town in the 1870s, opened in 2002. The attraction covers six acres and includes demonstration crafts, street entertainment and a 4-D film, "Tall Tales of the South."
The 3,200 acres offer the city's best singular recreational opportunity: 10 miles of hiking trails, 15 miles of biking-jogging paths, golf, tennis, fishing and water slides. A 1.3-mile trail takes visitors to the top of the mountain. A gondola also whisks visitors past the sculpture and to the top.
Great Place To Reconnect!!! – Stone Mountain is a gem of a place! It has something for everyone. We go here for so many reasons. It is the place to go to get away from the stress of daily life. Nice place to go after work on week nights to just let the kids play and grill a steak. We have yearly passes and they are WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! Some days we just drive out to ride the riverboat or ride to the mountain top for a relaxing view. 'Can't say enough positive about Stone Mountain Park.
If you like big rocks... – I have to admit that I was told by someone back home that, while visiting the Atlanta area, Stone Mountain was a sight to see. I was skeptical, but I went, and was amazed by it. Maybe I'm not your typical tourist, but I enjoy natural history and seeing geologic formations, so even though it was a cold, wet, misty day, I enjoyed it. The short tram ride is not for those affraid of heights, though, since it's very steep. The carving was interesting. The mtn. was the only thing I visited at the park. We went off-season.
Boring – If this is the best Georgia can do for favorite - then sorry for Georgia. It's too expensive for what you really get to do, which is wait in lines. Now, stone mountain is great when it comes to the area parks and lakes and hiking trail, but parking is way to expensive.
Never grows old – No matter how often we make the trek over frm Cobb County, we never get tired of visiting Stome Mountain. My kids love everything from the mini-golf to the paddle boats to the mountain itself. Every time we go, we make a day of it. The new attractions (Crossroads and The Barn) are a delight - better than we imagined. The yearly pass is well worth the money!!
The 4th of july daily, even fireworks – The park is a must see, for vistors to atlanta area, I am a long time patron of this park. Climbing the mountain at least twice a week while in high school visiting the park close to a 1000. Its a history lesson in progress. EVEN IF YOU DONT THINK YOU COULD WALK UP THE MOUNTAIN AT LEAST TAKE THE SKY LIFT UP THEN WALK DOWN ITS A GREAT VIEW DAY OR NIGHT. The lazor/firework show is a must see and its even free. You could spend the week and still be able to find new things to do. Just go you will not be disapointed.
tops – A good place for families as well as people of all ages. The park is always clean and well maintained.
Don't miss the real Rock – No one should come to Atlanta without seeing Stone Mountain. A lot of the activities are expensive, but just to see the largest piece of exposed granite in the world is something else. If you can catch the laser show - do it! The walk to the top is strenuous, but beautiful view once you arrive.
Rock On! – I have lived here all my life & Stone Mtn. Park still continues to evolve & keep entertaining year after year.
