Stone Mountain is home to Georgia’s No. 1 tourist attraction, the Stone Mountain Park, which contains more than 3,200 acres of pristine woodlands and a variety of family-oriented attractions, games and exhibits.
Summer is the best time to visit Stone Mountain so you can witness the annual Summer at the Rock event.
This year, Summer at the Rock started on June 10 and ends July 30.
A fun-filled adventure and excitement awaits every one during the Summer at the Rock, definitely the perfect time for your family to unplug and reconnect this summer.
Fun-filled attractions and special summer entertainment are available for everyone during the Summer at the Rock event. You can board the Scenic Railroad and take a trip around the base of the Mountain. Or you can challenge yourself on SkyHike, the nation’s largest family adventure course.
You can also cool off or play at the spray on Geyser Towers.
Highlighting the Summer at the Rock event is the nightly Lasershow Spectacular in Mountainvision, a fireworks and laser light display showing state-of-the-art graphics, lasers, lights, music and breathtaking fire effects that create a multi-dimensional magic on Stone Mountain, considered as one of the world’s largest outdoor screens.
This year, the Lasershow featured water effects, new music, animation, an immersive laser canopy and a fleet of robotic drones synced with music in front of the mountain face.
Adding attraction to the lasershow is a three-flame cannon where a trio of flames is thrown nearly one-hundred feet into the air, giving a magnificent view over Stone Mountain Park.
The Lasershow Spectacular is a tradition in Atlanta that you should never miss.
Aside from the annual Summer at the Rock event and the Lasershow Spectacular, another activity to look forward to in Stone Mountain is the Festival Under the Magnolia where hand-selected jewelers, potters, painters and crafters present their works in the intimate Historic Square venue of the Stone Mountain Park.
The festival features artist demos, food trucks and wine tasting, among other activities.
Listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2001, Stone Mountain is a great place in Georgia that should be included in your bucket list.
You can always come and visit Stone Mountain anytime but to gain a very memorable experience, choose summer time so you can take part in the Summer at the Rock event.
