Stone Mountain

Stone Mountain Park
 Stone Mountain, Georgia
Stone Mountain is an interesting place to visit with lots to see and do, from the views to the amusement park to the golf courses to the antique car museum.  The following images are just a few of the things we did and saw while staying there.  
 The Stone Mountain Inn, Stone Mountain, Georgia

The grounds at the Stone Mountain Inn.

This was a beautiful place to stay, however the restaurant left a lot to be desired.  I would suggest eating at the other resort accomodations at the resort or off property.

Gorgeous flowers were in abundance everywhere.

Featured on this magnificent carving are the Confederates most notable heroes; Stonewall Jackson, Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis

I only had one problem with my stay at Stone Mountain and that was I did not plan enough time there.  I could have used at least one more day and preferably two more days.  I would liked to have played both golf courses there but only had time enough to play one.  If I had played both then I would have missed half the other attractions.  Secondly, if I had allowed for the extra days there I could have also toured some of the other greater Atlanta area attractions.
