Family Adventure Package to Stone Mountain Park
Planning a trip to the exciting city of Atlanta this summer with your family? If adventure is what you are looking for then there are some great summer packages that you should be aware of. Georgia’s number one attraction, Stone Mountain Park (map), is located just fifteen minutes from downtown and is the best place to be with tons of activities for the whole family to enjoy.
With two Marriot hotels located within the park, all you have to do is show up and the rest of your vacation will be taken care of. The package includes staying at your choice of the two hotels in the park for one, two, or three night Family Escape Packages. With the package comes deluxe accommodations, breakfast, shuttles to the park’s attractions, and two-day all-attraction Adventure Passes.
If you have been having too much fun on your vacation to Stone Mountain Park and wish to extend your stay another night, you can do so for only $99. Hotel choices include the Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort (map) and the Stone Mountain Inn (map). Both hotels have resort amenities and delectable cuisine.
There are endless activities to do in the park, but make sure to try one of the nation’s best adventure courses, the Sky Hike, where no two hikes are the same and is great for the whole family. While being secured to the overhead safety system, you will be tested to master suspended wooden bridges, leap across wooden slates, and balance on a single rope high above the ground. Many different heights and levels are there for you to defeat. Also, make sure to try out the Summit Skyride, a high-speed Swiss cable car that brings you more than 825 feet above ground to the top of Stone Mountain. From way up you will have amazing views of the Confederate Memorial Carving, the Atlanta skyline, and the Appalachian Mountains.
Packages start from $179 and is valid until September 6, 2010
