Few things can hold your attention more than dancing lasers forming cartoons on the side of the world's largest chunk of exposed granite. After rolling one up and burnin' it down in the shadow of mountain-sized rebel Civil War generals, THE STONE MOUNTAIN LASER SHOW
has got to be one of the trippiest experiences inside or outside of the Perimeter. Stake your claim on the sprawling lawn early to enjoy the spectacle of high-priced whirling glow toys spinning throughout the crowd. Word to the wise: Pack plenty of snacks and watch out for law-and-order-minded suburban dads who will tattle on you faster than you can say "Brown Shirt."
