Stone Mountain, Atlanta
Stone Mountain is pretty cool if you like to go camping or golfing. We just got back the other day from camping...it was nice. They have a nice laser show. We have Six Flags which is nice but I've only been once. We also have great concerts here...there's always someone here playing...it's one on the best places in America for live music...hands down.
Stone Mountain Park, Six Flags Over Georgia Theme Park, Braves baseball at Turner field. Plethora of museums such as the High museum of art, Fernbank Science center, civil war attractions,Atlanta Zoo, and many many many more!!! Learn about the civil war when you come. It has affected Atlanta since it happened. The state has only really began to recover in the last 10 years or so.
Stone Mountain Confederate Memorial
A big rock with giant carvings on the one side. A cable car takes you to the 247m top of this monument, reminding one of Mount Rushmore. The surrounding park has several lakes and a couple of picnic areas.
Drive around town and visit as many locations as possible. So much of Atlanta is spread out, so if you spend time in only one place you're sure to miss out on a lot. Try to end up at Stone Mountain.
You're probably going to get lost driving around, but ask for directions and you may see some of that Southern hospitality. If you go to Stone Mountain, and actually hike up it rather than take the tram, you'll experience one of the rarest landscapes and get quite a bit of exercise. Once at the top, have a seat and take in the beautiful view.
Stone Mountain definatly, Six Flags over Georgia - the theme park and the Centinniel Olympic Park which shows that the Olympics did leave something behind, something truly remarkable
There are many memories from the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta which not many cities can boast.
You should go to Stone Mountain, which is a few miles from the city. It's basically a carving of Andrew Jackson and some others on the side of a mountain. They put on a laser light show at night in which lasers are shown on the mountain side and are accompanied by music. Sure it's kinda lame, but it's something to do.
If you've never been to a laser show, then you should go. I think the only unique thing about it is that there are alot of people and the music is pretty bad.
There is a town called Stone Mountain, and then there is the tourist attraction more correctly known as 'Georgia's Stone Mountain Park'.
This is one of the country's best collections of antique cars, toys, and curiousities from yesteryear.
Stone Mountain is a great place to see the skyline of Atlanta - this was taken in November during the late afternoon just as the sun is setting.
More details on Stone Mountain in my first tip.
u should take the tram to the top of mountain (7.5 usd) great views from up there and the mountain sirface is also amazing
Our trip just happened to coincided with a cherokee Indian Pow Wow at Stone Mountain. Pictured it the traditional dance competition.
The 3,200-acre state park offers recreation, entertainment, education and leisure.
Superb view from a sky lift, that rises 825 feet up the mountain and laser show at night.
