Stone Mountain Park

<p>Stone Mountain is located at the base of a mountain by the same name. This mountain happens to be the largest exposed chunk of granite in the entire world. Stone Mountain Park, which is located on and around the enormous boulder, is the most popular attraction in Georgia and is home to one of the most exciting hikes in the world. Sky Hike gives children and adults the chance to climb nets, balance across rope suspension bridges, and zip line around the park, reaching heights of up to four stories above the ground. The park also has a number of rides, a splash fountain to cool down on summer days, and a nighttime laser show. In the winter, Stone Mountain transforms into Snow Mountain, giving residents of sub-tropical Georgia a chance to ski and sled right in their own backyard.</p>

ART Station

<p>A visit to an old trolley car barn may not seem like the perfect way to spend a night out on the town, but in Stone Mountain, things aren't always as they seem. A quarter century ago, Stone Mountain's trolley barn was transformed into ART Station. ART Station is a state of the art performance hall and fine arts studio that offers classes for children and adults, as well as professional and community performances. Over 50,000 people visit the center each year, making this a hot spot not just for residents of Stone Mountain, but for those in the greater Atlanta Metropolitan Area as well.</p>

Stone Mountain Carving

<p>Over the years, the people who made their home in and around Stone Mountain have been chipping away at the huge hunk of granite that gives this city its name. Though the mountain is now a protected area and a local landmark, it was used as a granite quarry for many years. History buffs can find quite a few historic buildings in town that are made from granite harvested just up the hill. The granite in the mountain wasn't just used as a building material, though. It's also been used as a giant canvas. The carving on the face of Stone Mountain, which commemorates Robert E. Lee, Jefferson Davis, and the aptly named Stonewall Jackson, is larger than the faces carved onto Mount Rushmore and can be seen from all over town.</p>
