Atlanta, Georgia Attractions
Unusual landmarks, museums, roadside attractions, and hidden wonders in Atlanta and the surrounding area. Atlanta and its environs are far more than Gone With the Wind. This metropolis spawned both Coke and Waffle House, and its disease-ridden past made it the home of the Centers for Disease Control.
Sights for Oddball Excursions
A multi-million-dollar shrine to what Coca-Cola humbly calls "the most successful product in the history of commerce."
The world's last hope against deadly pandemic and zombie apocalypse. Exhibits on disease prevention, detection, and the CDC mission.
Waffle House #1, restored as it was. Lovers of hash browns, here is your heaven.
The Monkey from Mars is the star exhibit in the Georgia Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab Museum, but there's also a Meth Lab display, a voodoo-cursed murder hatchet, and much more.
For fans of the movie, with many elaborate costumes and a big mural of scenes with Rhett and Scarlet.
