If you’re looking for a distinctly local experience in Atlanta, you’ll visit Arabia Mountain, located in the town of Lithonia outside the city. Arabia Mountain is Stone Mountain’s cooler, less crowded, and less controversial sibling (no massive confederate memorial etched into the side). There’s a lot of history behind this rock and its alien landscape, but just know that it’s well worth the drive—roughly 30 minutes from downtown Atlanta.

Know Before You Go

Plenty of hiking that's not too strenuous. Starting from the visitor's center, it's all paved roads and boardwalks to the mountain's base. The mountain itself is not much of a climb... but it's massive.
