Excitement and Education at Stone Mountain Park

What is your family’s ideal summer vacation?  Adventure?  Entertainment?  Thrill Rides?  Nature?  History?

You can get all that and more when you visit Stone Mountain Park.  With 3200 acres of adventure and entertainment, you can please the whole family.

Ride the Summit Skyride.  A Swiss cable car that takes you up 825 feet in the beautiful Applachian Mountains for an amazing view of the Confederate Memorial Carving and the Atlanta skyline.  At Geyser Towers, three towers that surpass the treetops are accessible by suspended rope tunnels and bridges. To the delight of overheated children, several fountains of water shoot into the air over the exposed bridges, effectively soaking everyone who isn’t under a tower roof.

Stone Mountain ParkTake a ‘Tree-top hike’ as you adventure safely through the canopy at the Skyhike attraction.  The park offers shows like the Lasershow Spectacular with state-of-the-art digital graphics displayed on one of the world’s largest outdoor screens.

Get some nature time hiking the more than 15 miles of trails, fishing in the 363-acre lake, or a relaxing picnic in one of the park’s picnic areas.  You can even get in a round of golf on one of the two 18-hole courses.

Learn history the fun way at The Antebellum Plantation & Farmyard.  The plantation is a collection of original buildings that have been restored. Filled with period furniture and classic 18th and 19th century southern decorations, each building is an accurate portrayal of lifestyles past. The plantation also features a working cookhouse, traditional southern Stone Mountain Parkgarden, and a farmyard where kids can pet the animals and learn the role of livestock in the old south.

There is so much to do at Stone Mountain Park, its a perfect mix of excitement, education, and relaxation.
