Incorporated in 1860, Senoia has been the home of Raleigh Studios Atlanta (formerly Riverwood) for more than 20 years, and the town just happens to be a perfect backlot and a great place to visit. From the New York Times: "This is the quaint, small town that plays a quaint, small town on television and in the movies. Hollywood filmmakers come here when they need a Mayberry backdrop or a row of mom-and-pop storefronts. The community of 3,300 people, 25 miles south of Atlanta, has been the site of 24 shows and movies, from current hits like 'The Walking Dead' and 'Drop Dead Diva' to Southern classics like 'Fried Green Tomatoes' and 'Driving Miss Daisy.'" With a Hollywood-style walk of fame, a flood of new businesses is taking over the town, including bars and restaurants and independent shops. The motto of the town is "A Great Setting. For Life," and indeed it is.
