Georgia's Undead Trail
Fans of vampires, zombies and witches, among other supernatural beings, can now more fully appreciate and experience popular shows like “The Originals,” primarily filmed in Conyers, “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Walking Dead” by traveling the newly launched Georgia’s Undead Trail.
The trail takes visitors on a 93-mile journey through urban landscapes and trendy downtowns that have all been the backdrop of television series depicting zombies and vampires. Destinations that are featured in the trail include Atlanta, Conyers, Covington, Senoia and Woodbury.
Georgia’s Undead Trail incorporates a variety of film locations, attractions and restaurants in which fans can get up close and personal to the filming locations that transformed Georgia towns in the locations used in popular shows in the undead genre.
“Conyers has been home to numerous feature films and television shows over the last 30 years and we bill ourselves as ‘the biggest little filming community in Georgia’,” said Camera Ready Liaison Gina Hartsell. “The Conyers-Rockdale community is fortunate to have realized a great deal of tourism dollars and economic development from film tourism in recent years and we’re proud to be part of a new avenue to promote what we have to offer through Georgia’s Undead Trail.”
