Worth a full day stop in Tifton... it's sort of an historic disneyland where they've done an amazing job of pulling together all sorts of historic local buildings to build an 1800's small town, complete with a steam locomotive you ride into town, and historically garbed docents who help your kids do things like grind corn
Great place to go if stuck in Tifton. Great for kids.
Very nice live interactive historical museum
The Polar Express was amazing! It started out with a story then a train ride to see Santa
