One of my ALL-TIME, ABSOLUTE FAVORITE FAMILY VACATIONS!

Stone Mountain, Georgia

I love to travel and friends always ask me about my favorite family vacation. 

And without a doubt, I always say Stone Mountain Park, Georgia!

My husband was traveling a lot in the summer of 2012, so the kids and I decided to do the same. 

We hit a lot of GREAT destinations that summer:

*Key West
*The beautiful beaches of North Carolina
*Montreal, Canada
*The Cove at The Atlantis, Bahamas...

Of course, they were all beautiful and amazing places...

But the one that really stands out is 
Stone Mountain Georgia!

And I really think it's because there was SO MUCH TO DO!

A TRULY WHOLESOME, SLICE OF AMERICANA, FAMILY-FRIENDLY ALL-AROUND FUN EXPERIENCE...

The best part is we hadn't even planned this getaway and I live for spontaneous travel. 

We were visiting my high school BFF in Atlanta and she mentioned how awesome it was.

So next thing you know, I googled it and booked a room at the Stone Mountain Inn (more on our room later 👇) and we hit the road.

We didn't even have to travel that far...Stone Mountain is literally only a stone's throw northeast of Atlanta (20 or so miles to be exact-ish).

Here's a little snippet of all the fun things we did!

So fun, huh?!
Here's everything we did:
* Ziplining
* Rock climbing
* Took a Sky Hike - AMAZING!
* Took a Skyride to the summit of Stone Mountain and hiked down (btw: it was about 102 degrees that summer with a "feels like temperature of 110-115 🔥) You can see the Atlanta Skyline in the distance!

* Duck tour
* Played in the Geyser Towers! 
* Watched the AMAZING/HISTORIC laser light show on the mountainside while having a picnic dinner by the moonlight...
That's Stone Mountain behind them











There's honestly sooooooooo much to do!

Oh yeah...a little more about our accommodations. Like I said, we stayed at the Stone Mountain Inn:
Aerial view
Front view



and it was absolutely lovely. I mean, the room could have definitely used some updating, but it was HUUUUGGEEE! 

No bells and whistles, but exactly what we needed and so close to everything. 

There's also a campground option and the Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort.

If you ever decide to visit Stone Mountain with your family please let me know if you have any questions :)
