Kennesaw Reviews

Kennesaw is a cute, small town in Georgia. There is a lot of history there, especially in the down town area. There are plenty of things to see and do, from the train that puffs along the train tracks every morning, to the quirky old bookshops on the square. There are nice parks, restaurants, and beautiful places like Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield. The people are friendly and will give you a nice helping of southern hospitality! I hope people continue to take care of our city, keep our parks kept and clean, and treat wildlife fairly.
Review Kennesaw
Great schools for every grade level that are like family to each other! Hayes Elementary, Pine Mountain Middle, Kennesaw Mountain High, and Kennesaw State. Many fun things to do, jump places, arcades, skating and the mall strip with great places to eat. Many job opportunities for local teens and first time appliers. Very safe and kid friendly environment.
best and safest city ever! I've been a resident of kennesaw for 7 years. After I graduated from Kennesaw State in 2012 I decided to stay here and make a living. Now I'm married with 2 kids! The city is always developing new things to do, see, and eat! There are great jobs here but most people like myself still commute to downtown atlanta to work. The traffic is not great on the interstate but its worth the drive to live in a city that gives the best quality in everything!
