Sweet Home Alabama Filming Locations

Posted by Chris on August 7, 2014


A few weeks ago, Savannah and I, along with our spoiled pups, Hunter and Chloe, packed up the SUV and headed east to visit the Sweet Home Alabama filming locations. Unlike our previous tours, we split this tour into two days since the 16 locations we were visiting were spread out across Georgia. On the first day we traveled to a small out-of-the-way town called Crawfordville where the majority of the movie was filmed. This town served as the backdrop for Pigeon Creek, Alabama and housed 12 of the 16 filming locations we visited. On the following day, we traveled north and south of Atlanta to visit the remaining 4 locations.

Recently I published a blog posted titled “Sweet Home Alabama: Then and Now – 12 Years Later” to share our journey through Pigeon Creek with our family and friends, as well as all the fans of the movie. The post includes more than 80 then-and-now photos, video of the filming locations stitched in with scenes from the movie, then-and-now slideshow, and behind-the-scenes photos. There’s a lot of great content in the post so check it out if you haven’t done so already.

Sweet Home Alabama: Then and Now – 12 Years Later

It’s been almost 2 years since I put together a motion picture filming location tour so I felt it was time to sift through the long list of movies that were filmed on location in Georgia in hopes of finding another film that sparked my interest. This time, however, my girlfriend Savannah helped me with the decision-making process since we recently visited the filming locations for one of my favorite childhood televisions shows – The Dukes of Hazzard.

After spending some time weeding though the portfolio of films we finally landed on a popular film that follows the story of two childhood sweethearts from Alabama who marry, separate, argue, argue some more, and then ultimately rekindle their relationship. This Cinderella story with a twist is none other than the movie, Sweet Home Alabama.
