Marietta: The Big Chicken and Other Sights
The Big Chicken in on Cobb Parkway in Marietta is a Georgia landmark. If you haven't seen it, you haven't seen Georgia. As you can see, the beak moves. I understand it was designed by a Georgia Tech grad. It's been there for 40 years and I presume that it is burned into the consciousness of children all around Georgia.
I also took the opportunity to stop by Harry's Market, which is off the same exit of I-75. I stopped because I've seen it on Alton Brown's show. It turns out that it is a Whole Foods by a different name. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but there's no point in me driving 30 minutes to shop at a slightly larger version of what I have down the street.
