This 3200-acre park surrounds the world's largest granite mountain. Located just 16 miles east of Atlanta, Stone Mountain is well worth a visit for families. The five square mile park is Georgia's most visited attraction. The mountain features Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Generals Robert E. Lee and Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson carved onto the front of the stone. Stone Mountain Park visitors can choose to hike up to the top of the mountain. During summer months, a laser show is projected onto the granite along with choreographed music. Make sure to bring a blanket to sit on while you enjoy the laser show.
