On the outside, Georgia has it all - lively cities, eclectic small towns, and gorgeous feats of nature in between. However, when you delve a little deeper into what Georgia has to offer, things can get a little weird. There are some off-the-wall hidden landmarks around the state that are both equally intriguing and slightly concerning. These 7 unique and cool things to do and places to see in Georgia

 

Georgia Guidestones

Price: Free

Address: 1031 Guide Stones Rd., Elberton, GA 30635

Why You Need To Go: These enormous slabs of granite have been referred to as the "Stonehenge of the South." The eerie messages are believed to be a message to society on how to rebuild after the apocalypse. You may need to check it out to prepare, just in case.

Lunchbox Museum 

Price: $5/person

Address: 3218 Hamilton Rd., Columbus, GA 31904

Why You Need To Go: Most of us have let go of our adorable metal lunchboxes from back in the day, but there's one collector who hasn't let their childhood go. Georgia is home to the world's largest lunchbox museum and it's a trip down memory lane.

Babyland General Hospital 

Price: Free

Address: 300 NOK Dr., Cleveland, GA 30528

Why You Need To Go: You either loved or hated Cabbage Patch Kids when you were younger, but there's one thing we can agree on now: they're a little creepy. This faux hospital will showcase the dolls being birthed, hanging out in the nursery, and potentially being adopted by you.

Doll's Head Trail

Price: Free

Address: 3445 Almand Rd. SE, Atlanta, GA 30316

Why You Need To Go: We love a good hike in Georgia, but this trail has a surprise element. Obscure art like doll body parts are littered throughout the entire trail. If you find a piece of "trash" in the park, you can repurpose it as art and add to the trail.

School Bus Graveyard

Price: Free (Donations accepted)

Address: Alonzo Wade Rd. Alto, GA 30510, United States

School buses and scrapped cars double as canvases in this junkyard. If you know your way around a can of graffiti, you can be the next artist to transform the bus (with the owner's permission, of course).

Tree Spirits of St. Simon's Island

Price: Free 

Address: St. Simons, GA 31522

Why You Need To Go: Not only is St. Simon's Island the ultimate beach getaway, it's home to a mysterious hunt that'll take you all over the island. Legend says the carvings in the massive trees hold the immortalized spirits of sailors lost at sea. You might feel their presence when you go.

Discover Glowing Earthworms

Price: Free

Address: Hawkinsville, GA

Why You Need To Go: This tiny town is home to a worm with a strange ability. Unlike your regular, run of the mill worm, the ones here make blue slime and glow in the dark. Hammer a stake into some sandy soil and boom, watch them shine.
