Stone Mountain is a great place for a Staycationing Family. There is SkyHike, you can trek through the tree tops and they have zip lines. You can take the SkyRide to to top or you can hike to the top. (I decided to hike, it is not easy,but, it is an accomplishment. I mean, you ARE CLIMBING A MOUNTAIN!)
This is from the top. That is downtown Atlanta in the background Thank goodness when you get to the top there is a great breeze. I met the nicest gentleman who took this photo of me and helped to teach me how to get back down.
After your day in the park they have the worlds largest laser light show with a fireworks finale!
