Popular Filming Locations in Georgia

Georgia Atlanta skyline at night

In recent years, Georgia has become such a hot spot for film production that Atlanta’s earned the nickname Y’allywood. TV and movie fans in the Coweta County area might be watching shows filmed in their own backyards without being aware of it! Check out some popular locations near Carrollton, GA that are home to your entertainment favorites.

Senoia, Georgia

Before tiny Senoia became home to the walkers in “The Walking Dead,” it served as the tiny Depression-era home of The Whistle Stop Cafe in the film “Fried Green Tomatoes” almost 30 years ago. These days you can encounter the undead during an official walking tour of the town. Or hit one of the car dealerships near Carrollton, Georgia, take the doors of a new Jeep, and imagine roughing it through the apocalypse!

Sleepy Hollow Farm, Powder Springs

This fall after you get your car serviced near Breman, Georgia, head up to Sleepy Hollow Farm in Powder Springs for a family-friendly “Stranger Things” spooktacular day trip. The site served as Merrill’s Pumpkin Patch in season one, which you can visit in season. The exterior shots of Hopper and Eleven’s cabin from the second season have been turned into a family-friendly “Stranger Things”-themed escape room. Powder Springs makes a great day trip from Carrollton, especially when you stop for dinner in Villa Rica on your way home.

Lake Allatoona, Georgia

Lake Allatoona makes a perfect stand-in for Missouri’s Lake of the Ozarks on the show “Ozark.” This popular location is near Carrollton, Georgia, and makes a great weekend getaway from Douglas County or Villa Rica. Have a beer at J.D.’s on the Lake, which served as The Blue Cat during the first season and still has much of the set dressing from the show on display.

Atlanta, Georgia

Along with being home to many production studios, lots of exteriors are shot in Atlanta. The old train tracks below the Norfolk Southern Building have been used in many Marvel films and “The Walking Dead.” Not only does the area give off a post-apocalyptic industrial vibe, but it’s also great for hanging green screens to insert CG effects in post-production. This can be seen in “Captain America: Civil War” and as Hank Pym’s lab. The High Museum of Art served as the site of Eric Killmonger’s artifact heist in “Black Panther.” And while you won’t see any Dodge Challenger vehicles at Atlanta Motor Speedway, you can see the track as home to the chariot parade in “Hunger Games: Catching Fire.”
