I'm planning a visit to Atlanta and I'd like to see Stone Mountain, but I'd only want to see the carving and maybe go to the memorial hall. Is that an option? Or do I have to purchase tickets for the whole park?
The cost to get into park includes the carving and the museum as well as walking trails and picnicking.
You pay an entrance fee to the park which is by carload not individual (unless that recently changed). This grants all of you access to the entire park, but most activities require an additional fee for each. However, the laser show is included with entrance fee, but it doesn't start back up until later in the spring.
It's a very large park with so much to explore. Very woodsy with lots of trails, waterways. I personally never buy any extra activities unless I'm too tired to climb the mountain and opt for the skylift. Although, it's not a difficult climb, it can be tiresome after a full day. I highly recommend going to the top! Very cool 360 view, and near sunset, it's pretty awesome!
Stone Mountain offers many activities that will cost and very much worth the prices, but the nature walk or seeing the carving. And on certain nights a wonderful light show . Is cost free . Beautiful park with a strong history. Welcome and hope you enjoy your visit
You can see the carving from a distance without tickets. I do not know about the hall
We were just there in late November
There's an entrance fee then a gondola fee & a museum fee. You do NOT have to do the gondola or any museum & there's plenty of beautiful places to walk & hike. So just pay your entrance fee of you want. To see the carving you can stand at the base, you can ride up the gondola(I'm terrified of heights but still glad i did it) or you can hike up. Its a LONG uphill hike. Take the gondola at least once & you won't regret it. The museums were ok & i 'might' go bk but the view from the top & the hiking is an absolute.
