2017 HENRY COUNTY OFFICIAL VISITORS GUIDE Welcome to Henry County! Located 30 minutes south of downtown Atlanta on I-75, Henry County is home to unforgettable attractions—helicopter rides in military aircraft, inspiring animal encounters, one of Georgia’s few remaining Civil War battlefields—and plenty of homegrown fun. Thrill-seekers will love testing their tree-climbing skills or blazing around Atlanta Motor Speedway. Culture enthusiasts can take in a local theater production, and beer fans can “have a drink in the clink” at Jail House Brewing Company. Need additional assistance in planning your trip? Contact the Henry County Chamber of Commerce/Convention & Visitors Bureau or go to VisitHenryCountyGeorgia.com. Comfortably South of Atlanta Real People The heartbeat of Henry County’s attractions is the people who founded, run, or own them. Pay a visit to the local microbrewery or veterans museum, and there is a good chance you will meet the people who are actively involved in managing the day-to-day activities of their business or organization. When an authentic experience is what you seek, take the road well traveled to paths less traveled. Real Stories Stories are the language of life. They draw us together while deepening our understanding and our experience. Pay a visit to an animal sanctuary to learn the story of Zuri the white tiger. Step into the Heritage Park Veterans Museum to hear about a very special sweater vest. Or pig out at the “shack” that spawned a huge restaurant franchise. Henry County has stories to make and stories to share. Real Experiences Don’t just see…DO! Take flight in a Vietnam Huey or Cobra helicopter, race around Atlanta Motor Speedway, pick fresh fruit from an agritourism farm, or climb high into the treetops at a state park. Find the adventure you’re looking for—closer than you think.
