17 Jun Stone Mountain Senior Living
For retirees moving to one of DeKalb County’s senior housing communities, Stone Mountain offers plenty of exciting things to experience, especially with Stone Mountain Park being one of the most popular attractions in the state. The park features more than 3,200 acres of lush woodlands and a generous supply of recreational activities that seniors will appreciate, including golf, boating, picnicking and more.
Enjoying Stone Mountain’s Attractions
All year round, Stone Mountain Park offers a range of different ways to experience the majesty of the world’s largest piece of exposed granite. Along with the park’s wonderful diversity of boutiques and restaurants, attractions like the Summit Skyride and the Lasershow Spectacular provide breathtaking visuals, panoramic views and a one-of-a-kind way of seeing the magnificent Memorial Carving on the side of the mountain itself.
As winter rolls around, DeKalb County traditionally enjoys a mild climate, which seniors will truly appreciate. But, while the rest of the county is lavishing in comfortably warm weather, Stone Mountain undergoes a transformation into Snow Mountain. While some seniors may not want to take their chances on the slopes, they will regardless feel right at home on the scenic SnoDeck watching their grandkids ski and tube down the mountain or at SnoFire Point where they can gather with loved ones around the fire for some tasty s’mores. At Snow Mountain, everyone gets to feel like a kid again.
Festivals and Fun for Seniors at Stone Mountain
Stone Mountain Park is where seniors will also find some of the region’s best festivals and special events. Favorites include the Yellow Daisy Festival, the Indian Festival and Pow Wow, the Country Living Fair and many more. Meanwhile, Decatur, Lawrenceville and Atlanta host dozens of food, book, wine and art festivals between the three of them all year long, so there’s always something to look forward to around the Stone Mountain area.
