The city of Stone Mountain is named for its eponymous mountain and park. Stone Mountain Park is part nature reserve, part carnival. There are plenty of typical opportunities for camping, hiking on wooded nature trails, and fishing, but there is also the Stone Mountain Park Lasershow. The park hosts events throughout the year, features a high-speed cable car named the Summit Skyride, and there is even a scenic five-mile scenic railroad ride. The park is perhaps best well known for its Confederate Memorial Carving, which is a huge carving of Robert E. Lee, Thomas Stonewall Jackson, and Jefferson Davis.
Stone Mountain has a wealth of independent shops and restaurants that locals love, including Crazy Ron’s BBQ, which happens to be shaped like a train. Another favorite is the Village Corner, which is half bar, half bakery.
Conyers is a picturesque little city with big personality. The town is known for its crab apples and Catholic monks. The Monastery of the Holy Spirit is the home of a Roman Catholic Trappist sect, who makes their beautiful building open to the community. Arnold Palmer designed the course at Conyers’ Cherokee Run Golf Club, which draws serious golfers from around the Atlanta area. The city’s historic district is Old Town Conyers, unique for its colorfully painted buildings. The nearby Panola Mountain State Park offers nature trails, and a 12-mile paved path for biking and jogging.
