Stone Mountain Park is virtually unheard of outside of the South but truly a gem. It's one of the first places we take any out of town visitors as we know there is pretty much something to please anyone. First, there's Stone Mountain itself. The huge granite mountain with the largest granite carving in the world on top. It's of civil war soldiers on horseback. At night in the summer, they have an amazing laser show on the mountain that is true family fun.
Secondly, there are a million other things to do at the park. There is shopping, miniture and regular golf, an antebellom mansion to explore, water activities, a petting zoo, and a huge indoor park for kids to play around in. You can simply go for the mountain (which you can hike or take a trolley to the top) and pay one price for your carload of visitors or buy passes (individual or all day inclusive) for all the other myriad of activities. A definite must do.
