Film And Tourism
Griffin has been the backdrop to some of the most notorious productions recently, from the Hunger Games and the Walking Dead, to Black Panther and newly released Watchmen Series. Just outside of town is Tyus Park which hosts numerous Pickle Ball Tournaments and Frisbee Golf Competitions. Plus, did you know that UGA has a campus in Griffin that sees more than 40,000 visitors a year? Or that the legendary gun slinger and gambler, Doc Holliday, was born here? With easy access to Atlanta, film and tourism have resulted in more than $90 million in direct spending in Spalding County and accounts for more than 800 jobs.
