Reviewed March 17, 2013

The carving is one of those iconic sights of Atlanta that everyone should see once. Sort of like a Southern Mt. Rushmore.

Plus, you can take the Aerial tram and see the view from the top of the mountain.

“Memorable Stop in Atlanta - and a great review of US History”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

After hiking the back side of Stone Mountain, we enjoyed walking around the front side of the park to see the carving. Wow! Impressive! Sadly, the cable car wasn't running when we were there or we definitely would have done that. We enjoyed reading about the actual carving process - and watching a video as well. It was a neat way for our girls to review some of their US history. We took the time to listen to the carillon (bell tower) before we headed for home. Very, very enjoyable day. Lovely place for a family outing. Would definitely return with a picnic lunch.

“Atlanta 2013”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The Stone Mountain Carving and the adjacent park were spectacular! Although we went in the off season (all attractions were closed by 5p), the magnificence of the area is astounding. The Carving area itself has a multitude of shops and a couple areas for the kids. It would be a good day trip. We missed the gondola ride by about an hour -- would have liked to have gone up the mountain and seen the vista of the surrounding area.

“Unbelievable”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

A must see, and walk up the mountain to view the N. GA mountains. The walk up the mountain is worth the effort. Or, you can take the cable lift to the top.
