A must see during the summer nights in Atlanta. Included in with the price of admission to the Park. Have a picnic dinner on the lawn in front. Traffic & crowds during weekends & holidays make it a more difficult task of finding good seating. Bring a lawn chair or sit on towel on lawn during show. Show lasts 40... More

You wouldn't be able to know how big the carving is if you see it from bottom of the mountain. If you take cable car to top of the mountain, on the way you can notice how detailed the carving is and also how big it is. If you want to know about the carving more, you can watch a... More

Yes, it is large and well made, but it looks like it is dirty. Park is nice. Lift was closed for service.

The Stone Mountain Craving was amazing to see in person. We have never seen anything like that before. Even the small kids were impressed with the story behind how the cravings were done. The whole family enjoyed learning the history behind the craving and seeing it in person. We definitely want to visit again soon.

A pretty neat carving in the granite!!!! I think it's the final monadnock in the Appalachian mountain range.... I would have loved to have seen this being carved. The carving started in the 1920's and after on and off work, was finished in the early 1970's..The three people in the carving were Confederate heroes!! The mountain also has some nefarious... More

Walk down to the base of the carving and take a few minutes to look it over. Then walk to the top of the great lawn or all the way to visitors building and listen to the recorded tour (in several languages). View it through the telescope. Only then will you get an idea just what a tremendous job this... More

You can never go wrong here spending the day. My favorite is still the laser light show in the evenings!

After moving to the area a friend from work told me to check out Stone Mountain. Very cool to experience. My husband and I decided to "walk" up the mountain. It's abt. a mile, (wear comfortable and appropriate shoes! Myself and several other people I noticed learned this the hard way.) Some parts of the trip were a little slippery... More

It is an amazing sight. We hiked and traveled around the Mountain and it was a wonderful day. The hike up can be a bit trying if you are out of shape, especially during a hot day, bring a lot of water. It was very interesting learning the history of the mountain, and seeing all of the wild life
