How much time should we allow to see the entire park?
It all depends on how many activities you want to get in. For me, I like to do as much as I can so I need two days. I like to ride bikes around the mtn, hike the trails and of course climb it for the view of ATL. I also like to tour the plantation house and buildings as well as the Village at the base of the mountain which is relatively new. The laser show at night is a must if you are there during the Summer. Of course you can see a lot in one full day as well. Just depends how much time you have. There's something for everyone. Wow, that sounds like a brochure!
If you plan to stay for fireworks at night go from lunch on. There is a ton to do from mini golf to hiking the mountain to sky hike and a petting zoo plus more. You can look on the website to see show & event times to help you plan. Enjoy!
Well we were there for about 3 hours until close but our family was ready to leave. Things we may have wanted to do had there been more time: the Village. Honestly, we are not planning to go back.
It depend's on if you like history and read all the information. We stayed from 10:00 am until around 5:00 pm. Check the website to see if there's any special event's when you are going.
I would say at least 2 days. There's a hotel and an RV site. With the tram or hike up the mountain, museum, train around the mountain, The village of shops and eateries below the carving and the beach, not to mention so many hiking trails, etc. I've always enjoyed a picnic lunch or dinner on the green in front of the Stone Mountain carving - it's an awesome sight. And, there are BBQ sites where you can cook and picnic with wooden tables and benches.
It depends when you go. I went on their off season. The season is in full blossom now. All of the attractions and restaurants, etc. Are all open. My family was there 2 1/2 hours and that was just hiking up the mountain and riding the skylift back down. There's a lot to do now, you could easily spend half a day there.
