Explore a land that has taken 400 million years to form. The Arabia Mountain National Heritage Area lies just east of Atlanta along I-20. Dominated by two granite outcrops, it offers natural wonders, compelling history and heart-pumping activity. 

Bike along the 30+ mile, paved Arabia Mountian PATH (AMP), and see stunning vistas and historic landmarks. Hikers can discover rare plants and fascinating geology at The Davidson-Arabia Nature Preserve and Panola Mountain State Park, a National Natural Landmark. Hike above the trees and see the city of Atlanta in the distance.

Visit the Flat Rock Archives, and see how a group of slaves formed a community that thrived through enslavement, emancipation and segregation. At the Monastery of the Holy Spirit, meet a society of Trappist monks who moved to Georgia during a war and built a place of peace. 

You may pick up a brochure about the Arabia Mountain Heritage Area at the Davidson-Arabia Mountain Nature Preserve at 3787 Klondike Rd, in Lithonia, Georgia.

    The Atlanta Boy Choir's annual concert in the Abbey Church of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit is a tradition many count on to help them prepare for the coming of Christmas. Since the setting is both festive and sacred, the words of the hymns and carols sung here seem more wondrous and often resonate in a way far deeper than is possible in another place.
