For a true taste of the Old South, Madison, Georgia, is a must-see. Approximately one hour east of Atlanta, Madison is known as "the town Sherman refused to burn," and consequently the town retains nearly 100 carefully restored antebellum homes. In 2001, Madison was voted the #1 Small Town in America by Travel Holiday Magazine, and it was recently designated by Budget Travel as "one of the Most Picturesque Villages in the World." At the welcome center on the square (open daily), visitors can pick up a walking/driving guide and begin a 1.4-mile route through the downtown and historic district. Needless to say, filmmakers love it.
