Spread across 3,200 beautiful acres, Stone Mountain Park is Georgia’s most-visited attraction – and with good reason.  The fun never ends at Stone Mountain Park, where family activities reign during every season.  Visit the park, built around the world’s largest piece of exposed granite (that’d be Stone Mountain), for Spring Fun Break, Memorial Day Weekend, the Fantastic Fourth Celebration, the Yellow Daisy Festival, Pumpkin Festival, Stone Mountain Christmas and Snow Mountain. 

You can also enjoy a nice hike (you will sweat) and catch an amazing panoramic view of Atlanta's skyline. If your not up for the hike, there's a sky lift available to reach the top.

Parking has gone up to $15 but you can park at address below for free and take a short walk up to the park!

 Little Five Points

One of my favorite hang out spots is Little Five Points. Little Five Points is one of Atlanta’s hippest neighborhoods surrounded by the Inman Park, Edgewood, Candler Park and Poncey-Highland neighborhoods of Atlanta. Shoppers head to Moreland Avenue’s indie stores for offbeat vintage clothing, vinyl and cool gifts, while young locals hang out at the dive bars, burger joints, and Ethiopian and vegan eateries that line the surrounding streets.

I've been living in Atlanta 8 years and didn't realize we had an Anne Frank Museum. Located just above the Sandy Springs Welcome Center, this free 600 photograph exhibit with more than 8,000 words tells the story of young Anne Frank. The powerful, moving exhibit provides visitors a chance to learn, explore, share and remember the history and lessons of the Holocaust and its continued relevance today.
