Concrete porch

I have a plain concrete wrap around porch that I would like to jazz up a bit. I don't know if I should use concrete stain or one of the epoxy/stone finish kits. Any advice? Anyone know if DIY works out OK for either of these two finishes? Also, how does the price compare?

Concrete porch

The epoxy/stone process has many drawbacks and can be more problematic in some locations where freeze/thaw is an issue. Even tho epoxy stone is available to anybody it really isn't a DIY product.
