THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Thomasville's popular restaurants and thriving downtown will soon be featured in Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.

The State Tourism Department is creating a new state visitor center in the airport. 

Scout teams traveled around Georgia over the summer to see what various towns have to offer. 

Downtown Thomasville and Pebble Hill Plantation were chosen to represent the southwest region of Georgia.

Thomasville Tourism Executive Director Karen Smith said, “Thomasville has a lot to offer.  But not many locations have a vibrant downtown like Thomasville does.  It's always active, there are lots of places to shop and dine.”

The new state visitor center will also feature the Civil Rights Museum in Albany.
