Located just outside of Atlanta, Stone Mountain Park encompasses 3,200 acres of thick forests and natural vegetation, as well as world's largest piece of exposed granite, Stone Mountain.
Standing over 1,686 feet (514 m) high, the mountain is famous for the enormous bas-relief carving on the north face depicting three important Confederate Army figures from the Civil War – Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis. The Park offers a wide variety of outdoor activities and adventures.
Head to the top of the rock on The Summit Skyride, a high-speed Swiss cable car that offers spectacular passing views of the Confederate Memorial Carving, Atlanta’s skyline and the Appalachian Mountains from the summit.
Other family-friendly attractions include The Stone Mountain Museum at Memorial Hall, Geyser Towers, Great Locomotive Chase Golf, and a Skyhike through the treetops.
