Food Scene
It's our favorite restaurant - because of the food, because of the wine list, because Nic and Norman are both involved in the Walking Dead and because a lot of our friends go there. They are known for their excellent burgers. "Norman's Pick" is our favorite!!

Nice place - right in the middle of town. Good beer list and great old Irish food. Scottish eggs are great, as well as the shepherd's pie, etc. Nice, friendly place. And they have "Trivia Night" on Wednesdays.

Probably the best Restaurant we have around, this place is a gem. "Ant", the owner, is South African and loves great food. He also has been known to belt out a Frank Sinatra song or two when they have live music. This place has a great wine list and live music on Thursdays? You need to check their schedule. Great food and really great people.

It is the meeting place for locals in the morning. They also have a great popup Thai Restaurant there on Fridays (that only the locals know about). Oh, and the coffee they serve is roasted locally by our friend David, who also plays the Ukulele on cruise ships throughout the world.

It's a perfectly preserved mill about 5 miles away. It is gorgeous and a great spot for photos, etc. A lot of weddings shoot there. We are not sure if that requires a permit or payment, so you may want to check, but it is a gorgeous spot to go and spend a couple of hours.

These guys know the Walking Dead. Actors who often look like the real characters run walking tours through Senoia year round. They also have bus tours to visit other nearby shooting locations.

This is where they shoot many of the scenes for the Walking Dead. It is off-limits, and lore has it that they don't want you driving past the place. We also understand the prison is down there somewhere, though we've never been...

Wonderful park with lake and walking trails. It is less a quarter of a mile from our house. Lot of people fish there, and it is adjacent to our library.

Drinks & Nightlife
I asked Siri for help on the name, and said "Redneck Karaoke in Senoia". Up pops the Southern Country Steakhouse. It is a total throwback. Bring your cowboy hat and boots and hit the redneck karaoke on Saturday nights.

Actually - this is a typical sports bar with TV's at every angle. But the real reason we go there is because of their edamame and their spinach linguine. You can get a half order of linguine for $4.95!! It is excellent and insanely inexpensive.

Entertainment & Activities
They filmed the remake of "Dirty Dancing" at the racetrack. When it's open, you can hear the cars from 3 miles away on Thursdays and Saturdays. It's a half mile oval and they get some pretty decent racers from all over to come here. It is a pretty decent track according to the dirt-trackers.

Arts & Culture
This small museum has a great collection of artifacts from Senoia. From the early days to current times, they have done a wonderful job of capturing the spirit and essence of the location. Not being from this area originally, it was a great place for us to learn about the town. Oh, and our neighbor, Dub Pearman, is the President.

Another discount store - these guys serve a population of guys who have been incarcerated or who have had alcohol or drug-related issues. They do a fabulous job in each of their businesses. One of them is this store - where we shop religiously for clothes and furniture. Great bargains and a great ministry for a number of people who have gone on to do great things. They also operate a moving company which we've personally used for two separate moves. The gentleman who started this organization, John Barrow, has written a book, " A Better Way" about his personal struggle to find balance and get his life together. His solution has been this organization, which has helped hundreds of men.
