Cartersville is a great little town not far from Kennesaw, Marietta and even Chattanooga. The town is growing quickly but when you come you'll still get that southern hospitality feel. Downtown has some wonderful local shops and eateries, and don't miss visiting the local Tellus Science Museum. Some may not like the small town feel but just remember the large city is only a 15 minute drive south.
Cartersville is a great town to live in. Plenty of restaurants with good food, a lovely downtown with historical significance, and lots of events. If your looking for something to do, it's not far from good campgrounds, museums, and theatres. It is also a quick drive to great locations in the Atlanta metro area. It is a great place to live with great people to meet.
