Fodor's Review

At this 3,200-acre state park you'll find the largest exposed granite outcropping on Earth. The Confederate Memorial, on the north face of the 825-foot-high mountain, is the world's largest sculpture, measuring 90 feet by 190 feet. There are several ways to see the sculpture, including a cable car that lifts you to the mountaintop and a steam locomotive that chugs around the mountain's base. Summer nights are capped with the Lasershow Spectacular, an outdoor light display set to music and projected onto the side of Stone Mountain—attendance is a rite of passage for new Atlantans. A recent $4 million renovation included the addition of Mountainvision (3D effects without the glasses) to the show. There's also a wildlife preserve, an antebellum plantation, a swimming beach, two golf courses, a campground, a hotel, a resort, several restaurants, and two Civil War museums. Crossroads, an entertainment complex with an 1870s-Southern-town theme, offers costumed interpreters and a movie theater. The SkyHike is a family-friendly ropes course at 12 feet, 24 feet, or 40 feet high.
