Are you planning a visit to Atlanta in the near future, and wondering what is in the surrounding areas for day trips? Perhaps you have smaller children and are looking for something different, or maybe a romantic destination for adults. We will show you some awesome ideas that you just might want to check out.
One of Georgia’s most popular family destinations is in the town of Stone Mountain, and is called appropriately Stone Mountain Park. Mount Rushmore its not, but still the carving in the mountain just happens to be the largest “high-relief” sculpture in the world. It’s definitely picture worthy. The family can travel to the top of the mountain in a cable car, or by foot trail if exercise is in the picture. There’s a lake and streams along 15 miles of trails, and you can take a WWII amphibious vehicle for a ride into Stone Mountain Lake. Lots more to do, including treetop zip lines, water themed rope crossings, old fashion steam railway, 4-D-theater and so much more.
