The Walking Dead – Alexandria and Woodbury

We are both HUGE fans of The Walking Dead, a television series based on a comic book series by the same name.  It is filmed in the Atlanta, Georgia area.  While on vacation, we took an afternoon to visit 2 well-known locations in the show.

“Alexandria” – the “town/community” outside of Washington, DC where the group ends up after attempting to get to DC.  Having spent a fair amount of time in the real Alexandria, Virginia region, we knew it wasn’t filmed there.  It is actual a small neighborhood in Senoia, Georgia.  “Alexandria” is a real community in Senoia.  The residents agree to have the walker wall in place – it’s probably for the best – can you imagine your neighborhood being overrun with crazy tourists???

If you cross the street from “Alexandria”, you are in “Woodbury”, another fictional “town/community” in the series.  The real town of Senoia is small (population about 3,000) and has a couple of blocks to its “downtown” area. It appears that the TV show has allowed for some commercial growth due to tourism.  We stopped in at Woodbury Shoppe – basically a Walking Dead souvenir store.  John got a new t-shirt and Barb a new mouse pad!

Barb’s new mouse pad!  Really wanted to use it at work but was afraid of the repercussions!
Even the dog got to go shopping!
