Well, I have lived in Acworth for 14 years now, and honestly, it is not that bad of a city. Yes, it is small, but there are a lot of cute shops and things of the sort to go to in downtown Acworth, as well as a family friendly beach which my mother and baby sister go to almost every weekend! It's nice and quiet, if you're into that sort of lifestyle, and I've never met anyone from here that was inherently mean. I like it here, and I'll always have a sweet spot for it in my heart, even as I leave for college!
Review Acworth
I have resided in Acworth, GA for about 3 years. Its a very moderate little city with a little country and city twist to it. Its about 40 miles from Atlanta, GA just far enough to get away from the big city, but close enough to visit for fun and activities. Acworth is a family oriented town, lots of parks, churches and restuarants for eating and activities for the entire family, including the dog. There is about to be a Marta Rail System completed just in time for the new Falcons Stadium being built, which is located in Marietta less than 10 miles away. That should wake things up for sure!
Love living in Acworth! It is a wonderful city to live in. Quiet, Safe, Good Education system. Its a great place to grow up as i have for 20 years now. I have graduated college and have entered graduate school. I am looking to move back to acworth after graduate school and settle down and start a family.
