Acworth is a beautiful, family-oriented suburb of Atlanta. Locally owned restaurants, boutiques, and southern charm makes the historic downtown area the perfect place to spend the afternoon. There's always something fun to do with family and friends, from spending a summer day on Lake Allatoona to attending festivals and parades year-round. I love driving through town; hilly roads and fields of pine trees provide the "back woods" feel, even to the modern, newly developed areas of the city.

I love acworth! I have lived here for almost 13 years now and it has been nothing short of wonderful. Everyone is so nice and the area is so clean. It's a great place to start a family because there are so many family-friendly activities around. The schools are amazing as well. All of the public schools are just as good and if not better than the private schools. It's a great place to be!

Acworth is a great place to live. It's like being placed right in the best places of the South; with it's Southern charm, friendly local twang and tons of farmer markets/flea markets/art festivals. There's always something to do- whether it's bar hopping with friends, going canoeing across the beautiful Lake Allatoona or going hiking through the historical Kennesaw Mountains within a 20 minute drive. There's something for everyone is beautiful city.
