Favorite thing Well, Stone Mountain is on the outskirts of Atlanta. It's very all-American. They have
a laser show at night & everybody buys fried chicken & iced tea. Then they lay
on their blankets on the lawn whilst they consume their edibles & watch a cheesy lightshow that ends in beautiful, red, white & blue fireworks. It's enough to make an
American puke...I mean PROUD.

Fondest memory All in all, Stone Mountain is very cool to experience because it's a big hunk of granite
in the middle of nowhere. You get to ride a gondola to the top or if you have enough
stamina, you can climb. Climbing down is even funner. They have a gift shop & lots of
info about the place at the top. It's rather windy up there, but in the summer it don't
matter.

Favorite thing The guy who made Mount Rushmore carved this piece as well. According to the info
we obtained there, the carvers had a full dinner on the shoulder of General Robert
E. Lee while taking a break from the carving. They set up a 4 person table & had a
rather elegant dinner up there.

Favorite thing Visit Stone Mountain - largest piece of exposed granite in the world and (fun fact) biggest gathering of rednecks anywhere in the world on a weekend (see the above picture) for the laser light show on the side of the mountain.

Fondest memory The Olympics of 1996 wins this hands down.
