Be a Tourist in Your Own Town
You don’t need to travel very far to find some really fun things to do this Spring in your own backyard. I have taken many different types of tours in Georgia and I always end up learning something new, or finding a hidden gem restaurant I wasn’t aware of. Read on to find out some of our favorite tours and activities in Atlanta and the surrounding areas.
If you are a fan of The Walking Dead, Stranger Things or Marvel Movies then you HAVE to check out Atlanta Movie Tours. Hop on board their comfy buses and be transported to the places where many famous films and TV series have been filmed. We did the Big Zombie tour that takes you through downtown Atlanta and shows the roads and areas where Rick Grimes (character from Walking Dead) rode a horse in the city and on the interstate. Our tour guide was actually an extra in the series, so he had a lot of great insider info to offer about the show. Get in, Geek out! https://atlantamovietours.com/
