CDC (Season 1)

Filming did not take place at the real Centers for Disease Control, since only one movie (Contagion) has had permission to use the real thing’s exterior. Instead, the show used Cobb Energy Center’s exterior and the interior of the Georgia World Congress Center. Not much to see here — just a regular office building.

'The Walking Dead': Where to find 14 major filming locations

To celebrate the Oct. 22 Season 8 premiere of  The Walking Dead — the series’ 100th episode — Yahoo Entertainment will be posting a new TWD-related story every day through the season opener.

The Walking Dead has traveled across the southeastern United States for seven seasons, with survivors taking refuge in abandoned houses, stores, churches, schools, and even carnivals. The series started with Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) waking up in an abandoned hospital outside of Atlanta, Georgia. Since then, he’s reunited with his family, taken on new friends and allies, lost family members, lived in prisons and on farms, and ended up in a once-tony suburban development in Alexandria, Virginia.

Here’s a look at 14 major locations from The Walking Dead, their real-life uses, and even their addresses, in case you want to plan a superfan road trip.

The Walking Dead Season 8 premieres Oct. 22 at 9 p.m. on AMC.
