The Secret Side of Stone Mountain Park

Stone Mountain Park is famous for the 400 feet high carving of three Confederate war heroes, the laser light show, and the Crossroads family entertainment district. But did you know those areas only encompass a small portion of the 3,200-acre park? In addition to those attractions, Stone Mountain offers a lot of nature treasures too.

Families Love Adorable Pettit Creek Farms in Cartersville, Ga

Just a few miles from historic downtown Cartersville, Pettit Creek Farms is home to a menagerie of animals to rival a few zoos I have visited. Unlike a traditional zoo however, owners Scott and June Allen have placed most of the animals from different parts of the globe in the same pastures. A glance around any given pasture will show you heart-warming odd animal friends like a baby camel and her best friend, an old goat. The farm is a place where you will actually meet animals instead of just observing them. The Allens have hand-raised many of the animals from birth and are experts in their field.
