If you’re willing to explore, interesting attractions can be found in every one of the state’s 159 counties.
Did you know the second oldest hot dog stand in America, after Nathan’s on Coney Island, is located within sight of I-16 in Macon?

Did you know there’s a place in west Georgia where President Franklin Roosevelt would sit on a car seat and contemplate some of the most momentous decisions of the Twentieth Century? That’s a place you miss when you fly down I-85 toward Montgomery.
Did you know that the man who designed covered bridges all over Georgia and the spiral staircase of the Alabama State Capitol was a freed slave named Horace King?
