We asked, and you chose a local, well-known park for the best staycation.
Snellville Patch readers picked Stone Mountain Park as the winner of the recent Readers' Choice poll winner for the best staycation. The park, which is located a few miles from Snellville in adjacent Stone Mountain, pulled 66 percent of the vote. And, there's good reason: The park is home to walking and biking paths, water fun and relaxation, several places of accommodation, amusement rides, a train that trucks around the mountain, an education in Georgia's history, as well as the mountain (which is actually the largest piece of exposed granite rock in the world) itself. Trailing far behind in the votes were Lake Lanier, which receiving 22 percent of the vote and the Lawrenceville Female Seminary/Gwinnett History Museum with 11 percent of…

In this week's edition of Readers' Choice, St. Matthew's Episcopal Church was voted to have the best preschool.
I wasn't sure what was going to happen here. It was a nail-biter, even for me. I had a dream about it. No, really, I did. (Maybe that's what I get for working into the wee hours of the morning. Bound to dream about random, crazy things.) In a poll that saw 115 Facebook reccommends and 194 votes, the winner in this week's Readers' Choice poll was ... St. Matthew's Episcopal Church! Snellville Patch readers determined that it had the best preschool out there. (It wasn't even on the list originally, and someone wrote in that it should be.) Despite the small size of the St. Matthew's preschool, the people who love it came out loud and proud. With 44 percent of the vote and most of the positive comments, parent, teachers and the like made sure …
