Unless you're due West of the Panhandle of Florida, you're probably going to go through Georgia to get to Florida. Not that there isn't anything interesting in Georgia, but during the winter, the 30-40 degree differential in temperature does sort of keep you on the road...

That doesn't mean I don't stop in Georgia. I've got friends in Atlanta I try to stop in and visit when I'm down South.

Still, if I actually sit down and figure it out, I'll bet I've stayed in Georgia more nights than any other state other than Illinois (not counting business trips.) That's because most of my overnight stays while travelling to Florida are in Georgia.

From the pictures below, it's pretty evident that my main road through Georgia is I-75. In 2011, a few tornados blew through Georgia, both North and South of Atlanta.

I do have a thing about hot dogs. I actually routed one trip through New York, just to eat at Nathans. The Varsity is visible from I-75, and finally stopped in. Good stuff. You can tell when you feel the need for that cholesterol med when you walk through the door...

Once you leave Atlanta Southbound on I-75, you enter what I term the "Pecan, Peach and Peanut corridor, which stretches all the way to the Florida border. If you're ever down that way, you should stop in one just to see it...

Dragon*Con really isn't a place, it's an event, but there are pictures of Atlanta.

2011 Dragon*Con
Dragoncon Link When I was but a child, I was at gaming conferences like Gencon and Origins, and even more modern day events like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, but nothing prepared me for the level of cosplay at Dragon*Con. I was there in 2011, and stayed at the W, which is also reviewed.
