A majestic mountain in the middle of Atlanta? You called it! With Confederate Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson carved prominently on the face of the mountain, the five-acre park offers visitors a chance to soak up local history and get in a good workout. The mountain (the world's largest piece of exposed granite)boasts numerous hiking routes demanding exploration. Those less keen on huffing and puffing can avoid the effort with a ride on the Skylift instead. The "town" at the park packs a lot of kitsch, but it's of the kid-friendly variety. Rides and amusements include mini-golf, the Sky Hike attraction (which connects miles of suspended bridges among the treetops), and a train ride aboard a 1940s-era train.
