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

This thing is HUGE!!!! We enjoyed seeing it from snow mountain and stone mountain park. We stayed at Stone Mountain Inn and they gave us a near fact sheet about it. Amazing information. Helped us appreciate it even more.

My husband and I attempted to see the carving while at Stone Mountain for the Snow Mountain Christmas activities. We could not see the carving that well due to morning fog. It cleared up around 11am when we left the park.

We also went up the lift to see the top of the mountain. It was pretty cool viewing the carving as we went over it

It's the largest carving of this type in the world. It's awesome. Plan on spending all day at the museum and taking the mile trek up to the top.

Stayed at nearby campground and went to the park to see the carving. This can be seen without paying admission to the park. There is a small museum and information available about the carving which was very informative. Also tickets for the sky tram to the top of the mountain can be purchased without having park tickets . We spent... More
