The moment we have all been waiting for has finally arrived. Season 3 of Stranger Things is premiering this July 4th on Netflix and what better way to celebrate than by binge-watching the riveting Atlanta-based Sci-fi show? Strangely enough, the Stranger Things set locations in Atlanta are pretty easy to find, and you can check them out yourself.
It's crazy to think that we have basically co-existed with Millie Bobby Brown (Eleven), Gaten Matarazzo (Dustin) and Winona Ryder (Joyce). They have filmed in countless locations in Atlanta and surrounding areas, so you can practically breathe the same air they've breathed. You can take yourself on a tour around town to visit these super awesome locations and get an inside look at what it's like to be on set of Stranger Things.
The fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, where the show takes place, has come to fruition about 50-miles outside the city in a town called Jackson. However, there are lots of locations closer to Atlanta. From Stone Mountain Park to Gwinnett Place Mall, the cast of Stranger Things has been all over the Metro Atlanta area. Check out the set locations from all three seasons of the show.
Bradley's Big Guy
Bradley's Big Guy is the iconic supermarket where you can catch Eleven stealing Eggo waffles in Season 1. This is located at Piggly Wiggly in Palmetto, GA, about 30 miles outside the city.
Address: 506 Center St., Palmetto, GA 30268
This beautiful quarry is a site to see on it's own, but it makes it even more special that the Stranger Things cast filmed multiple scenes here. This is where Will's body was found in Season 1. You can check out this spot right in the city.

Stone Mountain Park
One of the most famous landmarks in the U.S. lies here in ATL and the ST cast has stepped foot in this park to use the woods and train tracks for filming in seasons 1 and 2. They likely filmed here for Season 3 as well. While you're here, you may as well make a day of it and explore the park or hike to the top of Stone Mountain.

Gwinnett Place Mall
Quite a bit of filming for season 3 took place at Gwinnett Place Mall, where you can spot Scoops Ahoy Ice Cream Parlor in the show. The producers revamped stores like Gap and Radioshack to align with the show's '80s theme.

The Benny's Burgers we've all secretly wanted to try is actually, Tiffany's Kitchen, a hidden comfort food diner in Lithia Springs. This is where we saw Eleven stealing fries when she was first introduced in season 1. A kid's gotta eat.
