I am not a big Civil War buff but this place was very interesting. It was the key battle that opened the door to Atlanta for Sherman. The success of the Federal side in this battle cleared the way for Lincoln's re-election (until then McLellan, his former general, was a big favorite) and the end of the war. The visitor... More

Do not. I repeat DO NOT come to this park if you are just going for Civil War history. Especially if you are traveling long distances. The place was absolutely infested with joggers who could give 2 shi*ts about the Civil War. No parking either. The place was horrifically packed. Not with Civil war buffs I remind you but with...

When I was in Atlanta for business last Fall, I made it a point to drive up Kennesaw Mountain one late afternoon and do some hiking. Really a neat place for a hike. It's a national battlefield park and has spectacular views of the surrounding area. On clear days, you can almost see up to North Carolina. I loved the... More

This is a great park for getting out and hiking, and throwing in some good civil war history while doing it. Not all the hikes originate from the visitor center, so i highly suggest doing some quick research before heading over. you'll find some great, flatter hikes around the park grounds. The most popular hike is the trail up Kennesaw... More

Kennesaw mountain is a decent hike up and down so bring water and bear in mind that one way is a paved road(the most scenic way)which overlooks whats below and the other mountain in distance,think it's stone mountain.The other way is through the wooded territory where you may get lucky enough to see deer just a few feet away like...

This is a site famous for the 1864 battle that took place between union and Confederate soldiers. The main building is handicap accessible and plays an excellent easy-to-follow film on the hour. Cruise the bookstore for a variety of items for kids and history enthusiasts. There is also a small museum with original items from the war. Don't forget to... More

My family needed to get out the day after Christmas so we hit up Kennesaw Mountain. It was a bit chilly, but a beautiful day. The hike was not to strenuous and was very enjoyable with plenty of benches to rest on. Nice views.

This was our first trip to this National Park. Beautiful place. The staff was outstanding. The museum and film was one of the best I have seen. They have a great book shop as well. Well worth the trip.
