Stone Mountain: The city in the shadow of the rock

Hulking above the skyline of eastern Atlanta, the bulbous rises of the Stone Mountain have long kept watch over the town of the same name that sprawls out below. Today, that place is peppered with charming family cottages and all manner of other Stone Mountain vacation rentals, all aimed at offering the perfect launchpad for hitting the scenic railways, cable cars, golf courses, adrenaline-pumping adventure parks, and festival grounds that abound nearby. There's something for the whole troop here…

From pumpkin fests to hiking trails in Stone Mountain

There are oodles of reasons why Stone Mountain is hailed as one of the top entertainment districts in all of Atlanta. Just take the great rock itself, which bears mind-boggling bass reliefs of Confederate generals. Or, look to the winding hiking routes that weave through the pockets of Georgia oak trees to the panoramic lookout points above. And then there are the scenic railroad rides, the spectacular fall colors celebrated at the harvest Pumpkin Festival, the summertime laser shows, the family assault courses – the list goes on…

Soaring high and rattling low in Stone Mountain

Why not search for Stone Mountain vacation rentals that are close to the entrance of the Stone Mountain Park? Doing that could mean you're out of bed and riding the steam-puffing locomotives of the Stone Mountain Scenic Railroad before anyone else, or gawping over the great granite peak from the windows of the Summit Skyride gondola as the sun rises over the Georgian backcountry. And it's not all primed for the younger ones either, because the duo of the Stonemont Course and the Lakemont Course means no fewer than 36 holes of golf on the doorstep to boot.

Summer and fall mean festivals in Stone Mountain

If you're searching for Stone Mountain vacation rentals for the whole family to enjoy the treats of this fascinating park on the edge of Atlanta, then it might be worth waiting for the summer and fall festival period. This typically runs from May through to October, while other events take place in the winter months. If you don't mind skipping the laser shows and harvest parties, then springtime promises smaller crowds and pleasant weather.

Granite peaks and giant oaks in Stone Mountain

Stone Mountain is shrouded by the colossal outline of its namesake granite peak. This shoulders its way above the horizon to host the winding trails and nature paths of the Stone Mountain Park, where clutches of beautiful oak forests cluster next to creeks and glistening lakes sit near to manicured golf courses. For something a little quieter, you could always make a beeline for the Wade-Walker Park to the south, which has playgrounds and jogging tracks and a charming little fishing pier.
