The 3200-acre Stone Mountain Park showcases an abundance of recreational and leisure activities such as the Mountaintop Sky lift, giving passengers an 825-foot climb to the top of the mountain that offers a panoramic view of the Georgia Landscape and a stone carving larger than Mt. Rushmore; Crossroads, the 1870Çs replica of a Southern town, where families can meet fascinating characters, crafters and the townspeople who still work the old trades and dress in styles of the past; and a range of kids favorites including the Treehouse Challenge, the Great Barn or a Huck Finn adventure on the Scarlett O’Hara authentic riverboat and more. Four water slides including the Mountain Screamer and the Southern Pipeline make for cool summer fun for the entire family.
Other activities involve taking a swing at the world-class 16-court tennis complex that served as the venue for the 1996 Summer Olympics; sharpening skills on 36 championship holes; or taking advantage of a mind, body and soul rejuvenation with a visit to The Spa at Evergreen. In addition, the Evergreen Marriott Resort provides an array of packages such as Romancing the Stone.
