    Hmmm... did you know that Stone Mountain is the largest exposed piece of granite in the world?

    Here's one:

    Ever wonder why no matter where you go in Atlanta, you always seem to be driving on Peachtree? There are more than 65 streets with the word Peachtree.

    Hahaha!!! I got so confused where I first moved to Atlanta just because of this. I was always getting lost. :)

    Here's another I just found... on the same topic, my nemesis: Peachtree:

    Is Peachtree Street named after a peach tree?

    Peachtree Street is not named for a peach tree of any sort. Many of Atlanta's corridors follow the paths created by the Creek and Cherokee Indian nations who inhabited the area until the early 19th Century. A large Creek settlement was called Standing Pitch Tree after a tall lone tree. Over time, the "pitch tree" became "peach tree."
