This is the size of Mt Rushmore, is in solid granite and the history is truly amazing. To fully enjoy you should attend the museum and get the details as to how big and what a project this was. Men gave their lives buying this which honors confederate Generals.

Went as a weekend getaway with my spouse and I enjoyed every moment! The grounds are well kept, the park is super family/dog friendly, the people are wonderful! I would strongly suggest you buy the tickets online with the meal ticket, especially if you have small children, because you will save a lot!

Our friends... More

Yes, the subjects are controversial in today's political climate, but don't let that overshadow the significance of the carving itself. It's absolutely huge. The history of the carving and the final product are impressive. The rest of Stone Mountain Park is also worth visiting. Stay late for the hour-long Laser light show (really mixed media) that is impressive, if not... More

Go to the museum to hear about the history of the carving. Also, nice place to cool off after the hiking around.
