Few hints of the Battle of Atlanta have survived the city’s bulldozers and steamrollers. Just north of the city, Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park offers a more complete, and scenic, view of the battle that preceded Atlanta’s fall. But if you really want to feel the scope of the last war fought on Southern soil, head about 100 miles north to CHICKAMAUGA AND CHATTANOOGA NATIONAL MILITARY PARK. The Chickamauga part of the park, which is in Georgia, looks and feels like a hallowed old battlefield: rolling fields, idle cannons, somber memorials. It was the site of one of the South’s last big victories. U.S. troops retreated north to Chattanooga, Tenn., regrouped there, broke out of the city, and then, under the leadership of William Tecumseh Sherman, marched on to Atlanta. Parcels of the park commemorate clashes in and around Chattanooga, including Lookout Mountain and Missionary Ridge.

So you're taking that extra sick day off and looking for a place to spend it? Try hitting Stone Mountain. It has everything, from high-contact rides (hiking trails, a new water park, ice skating) to low-commitment risks (golf, picnic areas, train rides). To cap off your day, you can chill out and watch lasers make psychedelic designs on the side of the huge granite stump while the Charlie Daniels' Band wails in the background. Yeehaw! less...
