Universal Studios in Florida is a Theme park containing fun movie rides. It is not at all uncommon to see famous cartoon characters, such as Homer Simpson, roaming around the park. Teens and adults who possess strong stomachs may enjoy riding the various movie rides available. Universal Studios also has water rides available to keep people cool. As for the sweets, the funnel cakes are absolutely delicious. I would highly recommend Universal Studios as a place to go when visiting the Florida area.
Stone Mountain Park is another tourist attraction near Atlanta. The park is located in Stone Mountain, Georgia. Not only is it a fun place to visit, but it is also historical. The mountain is the largest exposed piece of granite in the world. The f ace of the mountain was carved by the same man who carved Mt. Rushmore; however, he did not finish it. The carving, which is located on the top of the mountain, remained unfinished until it became a state park. The establishment of Stone Mountain State Park took place in 1963. The carving represents three key figures of the Confederacy riding their horses. The men included are Ulysses Grant, Robert E. Lee, and Jefferson Davis. The width of the carving is three-hundred yards, therefore, the width of a football field. Along with historical museums, the park has campgrounds and horseback riding. Stone Mountain Park also has a water park with a beach and a beautiful golf course. My favorite activity, however, is the laser show. The laser show takes p lace on the face of the mountain. Many shows take place on the holidays, such as July 4th. Stone Mountain Park is also a main focal point for the 1996 Olympics. There will be seven events taking place in the park. I definitely won't miss that attracti on!
Last, but definitely not the least, is the exciting Atlanta Braves Stadium. I spend most of my time there when visiting Atlanta....
