Juliette was a bustling railroad community during the early 1900s. Over time, as the railroad industry declined, Juliette was nearly forgotten until 1991 when movie producers for the film "Fried Green Tomatoes" discovered Juliette and reconstructed the existing buildings into the fictional community of Whistle Stop.
Today, Juliette is a vibrant community where you step onto the movie set and have a plate of fried green tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café right where Idgie sat (11-4 daily). After enjoying a delicious meal, stroll the scenic community and browse for unique gifts or collectibles in the shops along McCracken Street, take selfies, visit the honey keeper or make your way around to Ruth and Idgie's graves and the old Juliette Grist Mill circa 1927, one the world's largest water-powered grist mills.
Located one hour south of Atlanta and 20 minutes north of Macon, Juliette is an ideal trip for the day or evening. Juliette is located nine miles east off Interstate 75, exit 186.
