More Places to Visit
If you’re looking for some outdoor fun during your stay, then we recommend taking a trip over to Stone Mountain Park and making a day of it. Start with a scenic hike up the mountain (or ride the Skylift if you’re not in the mood to hike) and take in the beautiful views of the surrounding cities from the mountain top. Then head down to the shopping area for lunch and to see some craftsmen working on hand blown glass, or head into the petting zoo to feed a few furry friends. And don’t forget to see the laser light show at night. Cuddle up with your sweetie to enjoy the show from the comfort of one of the terraces which showcase an outstanding view of the mountain, its famous carving and the world’s longest running Lasershow. Three flame cannons send a trio of flames nearly one-hundred feet into the air, and fireworks spray multi-colored bursts that dance on the water at the base of the mountain. You won’t want to miss it! Location: Main entrance is an exit off Hwy 78, about 45 minutes away. Cost: $. Visit http://www.stonemountainpark.com/ for more.
