Heartwarming, Home-Grown Fun

NASCAR fans will love Henry County, located southeast of downtown and home to the Atlanta Motor Speedway. Check out the driving school calendar for a chance to ride in or drive an actual NASCAR race car. Peruse Henry County’s local artwork at nearby galleries or the many unique shops in historic storefronts. Get bitten by the zombie craze at Speakeasy’s “Walkin’ Dead Hampton” tour, a 14-stop walking tour of every major scene shot in Hampton during The Walking Dead’s sixth season. Have a “drink in the clink” at one of the most unique spots in Henry County, JailHouse Brewing Company, located in a former jailhouse. Take a helicopter ride at the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation and Flying Museum. Step into the past at Nash Farm Battlefield, the only Civil War battlefield south of Kennesaw Mountain that remains meticulously preserved.
