Begin your visit at the Coweta County Convention & Visitors Bureau which is located in the 1904 Historic Courthouse in downtown Newnan. The staff there will point you in the direction that suits your interests! Whether it be a driving tour of historic homes in Newnan — the City of Homes — or antique shopping in one of the many quaint towns in the county.

If it’s the lure of film making that interests you then you won’t want to miss seeing the locations of many motion picture and made-for-TV productions that have taken place here including the popular cable TV series “The Walking Dead.”

Explore museums in Moreland, Newnan and Senoia; stroll through Dunaway Gardens, a breathtaking floral rock garden or camp and hike at the 3,000-acre Chattahoochee Bend State Park located on the Chattahoochee River. Visit the hometowns of country music star Alan Jackson, literary genius Erskine Caldwell and humorist Lewis Grizzard. We invite you to come visit — spend the day, spend the night or even spend an afternoon — there’s plenty to do in Coweta County!
