So the supposed #1 attraction in Vidalia is the museum. The probably reason for the towns fame, yet not opened on the weekend when people are out of work and looking to see the sights. This is very lame!!

We visited the Vidalia Onion Museum for about 15 minutes. I would say it wasn't all that exciting. Lovely tour guide who gave us information that was on the walls.

Small in size but large in content. Worthwhile time to learn of the history of the local sweet onion history and early pioneers. Professional and very friendly greeting staff
