Acworth Reviews

65 reviews
All Categories
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!
Review Acworth
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.
Acworth is a beautiful place to live! Great school systems, affordable housing market, and just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Atlanta.
