6. Habitat For Humanity’s Slum Theme Park

The Habitat for Humanity’s headquarters is in Americus, Georgia and it shows what the nonprofit organization does for people in poverty.

The organization built a theme park showing what poverty is like all around the world and what they hope to eliminate. The theme park is self guided and walks you through different parts of the world. There are even signs in some places saying “deadly insects” to show that some places like Africa, have insects that cause horrible diseases. At the end of the tour there is an open field with trees, flowers, and plants around little houses. This “mini-utopia” shows what the organization wants to achieve.

7. Tank Town USA

Usually you have to be trained to drive a tank, however, for a price you can drive tanks and crush cars in Morgantown, Georgia. The tanks are actually not tanks, instead they are FV432’s which are armored carrier cars used in the British army because the United States army does not sell operational armor to the public. Learning how to drive one takes about 3o seconds and once inside the view is panoramic. The fee for driving the vehicle is 5o dollars, which includes the driver and a passenger, but if you want to crush a car it costs 500 dollars.

8. Little White House

In Atlanta, Georgia there is a house that is exactly identical to the White House in Washington D.C. Fred Milani fled from Iran to the United States in 1979 and built a successful real estate company. After becoming wealthy, Milani built himself and his family a replica scale model of the White House. Milani built this replica as a tribute to the democracy of the United States of America. Inside the house has a few replica rooms such as the oval office which has a desk similar to the one in the presidential office. There is also a replica of the Lincoln bedroom with the copy of the emancipation proclamation hanging up on the wall. After the housing market bust in 2009, Milani had to put his house up for sale for 10 million dollars. Unfortunately, in 2011, the house foreclosed.

9. Georgia Guidestones

To the left of the stone there is a tablet that states the astronomical features of the tablet and an apparent time capsule buried 6 feet below the monument. Also, on the tablet it says “Let these be guidelines to the age of reason” and around it has 4 different ancient writing languages including Babylonian, Greek, Sanskrit, and Egyptian.

10. Dawson Forest

Dawsonville has many things to do such as the outlet malls or Amicalola falls, but deep in the forest there is something many people don’t know about. Inside Dawson Forest there used to be a nuclear aircraft laboratory used during the Cold War. It was a United States Air Force facility named air force plant #67 in which they were trying to design nuclear aircrafts. The entrance to the actual plant is underground, however the entrances have been buried. The only thing that remains left is the nuclear cooling building, which has an entrance that is completely sealed shut and large amounts of radiation around the area.

Atlanta United will be first sporting event in Mercedes-Benz Stadium, construction in final stages

Atlanta United will be the first sporting event to play in the new $1.5 billion Mercedes-Benz Stadium opening this year, the Arthur Blank Group announced on Friday.

Atlanta United, an MLS expansion team beginning competition in March, will play its first regular season game at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium stadium on July 30. The team's inaugural schedule will be released next week and will play its first home games at Bobby Dodd Stadium at Georgia Tech before moving into the new stadium. 

The announcement signifies stadium officials' confidence that the stadium will be completed in time for the first event and the entire 2017-18 NFL season, including the preseason.

"What has been a work that has gone in for several years, now we're on the edge of planning to execution," Steve Cannon said, the CEO of the Arthur Blank Group. "We're in full speed mode. The pace of our construction has increased."

Cannon said that the most complex component of the stadium's construction, the structural steal, was completed in November. Now, they are in the final phases of construction and it's "off to the races" to complete the stadium.

The final stages include completing the retractable roof and the lower bowl section. They are also in the final phases of finishing the locker rooms, suites, offices and concession stands.

Cannon said they will begin taking over the stadium between April and June.

The stadium will host smaller events built around Atlanta United's home match to help prepare for larger events. These events will mostly be for club members, season ticket holders to the teams playing at the stadium, sponsors, etc. Those events have not yet been announced.

The Atlanta Falcons will play two preseason NFL games and the season opener in August at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. The team's schedule will be announced in the spring. There will also be a "grand opening event" followed by two concerts in August. The concerts will be announced later in 2017.

The first two college football games at Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game between Alabama and Florida State on Sept. 2. Two days later, Tennessee and Georgia Tech will play. 

The Georgia Dome's final event will be in March, and then a demolition date will be set.
