Henry County, Georgia | I-75 Exit Guide

Only 30 minutes south of Atlanta, and a convenient stop on the way to Savannah or Orlando, Henry County includes the cities of Stockbridge, McDonough, Hampton and Locust Grove, as well as delightful family farms for tours, produce, honey, handcrafted soaps and more. Memorable attractions include Atlanta Motor Speedway, inspiring animal encounters, military museums and helicopter rides in military aircraft and one of Georgia’s few remaining Civil War battlefields.

Explore the area and take a self-guided tour along Henry County’s Artisan Trail, a collection of places featuring artisan goods and art throughout the area. Experience agritourism at Southern Belle Farm and other area farms. Delight in custom barnwood furniture, leather goods and more at area retailers. Satisfy a craving at local restaurants like Drip-Thru Coffee and Made Fresh Juice Co. Take home a Georgia-made souvenir as a reminder of your getaway.

Take love to new heights with a trip to the Army Aviation Heritage Foundation which honors the military’s “Sky Soldiers” by restoring and maintaining vintage aircraft from the Vietnam War. The experience takes flight when climbing aboard a UH-1H Huey, where a veteran pilot brings guests high into the clouds aboard this impressive chopper. Thrill-seekers will enjoy a more intense ride by taking a seat inside the AH-1F Cobra attack helicopter. The hangars that serve as the home for the flying museum of Vietnam-era Huey and Cobra helicopters are located in Hampton at the Atlanta Speedway Airport (formerly Henry County Airport). Admission is free.  https://armyav.org/about/

Set among landscaped gardens, Stockbridge Lakes Bed & Breakfast features three beautiful rooms on the main level and a one-bedroom apartment-style retreat on the lower level, all with a private bath, a modern feel and Southern charm. Mornings include a fresh home-cooked, locally-sourced Southern-style breakfast with a flair or beautiful breakfast basket perfect for in-room or outdoor dining. Stroll the paths around the lake, admire each other and the view, and enjoy the paddle boat, feeding the fish and yard games. Afternoons, sample fine cheeses and refreshing beverages. Turndown service includes chocolate truffles and cold bottled waters. To celebrate with a memorable evening, the chef is preparing a special three-course candlelight dinner by the lake, either in the dining room or open-air pavilion, open to all by reservation. The separate package includes a photo shoot, a dozen roses and more. https://www.stockbridgelakesbnb.com/events.html Additional lodging options range from familiar brand hotels to sleeping under the stars at beautiful campsites. www.VisitHenryCountyGeorgia.com
