Search Canton Real Estate Now
Canton is one of the fastest growing cities in North Georgia. It is located approx. 45 minutes north of Atlanta – straight up I-75 and then north on I-575. Canton actually started off as a “mill” town – carpet mill that is. One of the old carpet factories is still standing and has taken advantage of the statuesque architecture to renovate into loft apartments.
The city of Canton actually has two distinct areas. There is the historic district—with many of the old buildings and businesses still going strong. Mixed in with the old is some new – hard to miss is the very imposing new court building at the center of town. Also new are some great restaurants ranging in style from very upscale with entertain- ment at night to more casual eateries with soup and salad fare.
The other area of Canton is referred to as the “commercial” center. It is approx. a four mile strip of highway (Riverstone Pkwy) that is home to almost every type of shopping or service you would require. And more is coming every day! Also in this area resides a wonderful hospital – Northside Cherokee- and the many medical offices that appear around a hospital as an area grows.
The view around the city is mountainous. If you drive 5 minutes north on the interstate you are getting into the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Lake Arrowhead and Carters Lake are close by as well as Lake Allatoona. The Etowah River meanders throughout the city and provides scenic views for those visiting and for homebuyers lucky enough to live in riverfront communities!
Canton Georgia is a great place to live. New neighborhoods are springing up all over – and most are trying to keep the natural beauty of the area in tandem with the community. Great Sky, Lake Arrowhead, Governors Preserve, Bridgemill, Forest Creek, River Green, Laurel Canyon and Mountain View are just a few of the many developments appearing in the area. Most of these communities have great family amenities: pools with water-slides and zero entry, nature trails, tennis courts, golf courses, fantastic club houses, etc.
Also starting development in spring of 2007 is a multi-use community called “The Bluffs.” It is being called a “technology park” which will include office space, housing, amphi-theater, and a six acre reservoir. The “park” is located right behind the main retail area of Canton and is conveniently located minutes to the 575 interstate exchange.
