It’s easy to get to Stone Mountain Park: By car looked like the Atlanta Hwy. 85 North, then the bypass road 285 west towards Augusta, then the Stone Mountain Freeway, which leads directly into the Stone Mountain Park. Parking fees must be paid at the entrance.

Stone Mountain Park is a huge park with a wide range of activities and attractions. You can stay here all day, because there is something for everyone to do. Ma can also just laze around and just relax.

What’s in the park?

Only one of the largest granite rock in the world. He is on the ground with a height of over 250m and a circumference of 11km. Geologists estimate the age of this stone of more than 300 million years ago. The whole story of this stone you can at Memorial Hall in German by listening to a tape. In the largest high relief sculpture in the world, the three heroes of the Civil War, Jefferson Davis, General Lee and Stonewall Jackson are carved.
