“Where metro meets the mountains.” Moving at a big-city pace, Canton still embodies small town charm. An area once home to the Cherokee, the stories are preserved through the arts, festivals and the Funk Heritage Center, Georgia’s Official Frontier and Southeastern Indian Interpretive Center in nearby Waleska.
A variety of restaurants and lodging make Canton a great place to stay while exploring sites and attractions including Cagle’s Dairy, hiking and biking trails at Reinhardt College, and a 10-acre Wild West Town with more than 100 inhabitants - all of them miniature farm animals! The Canton Theater and Cherokee County Arts Center feature entertaining performances throughout the year.
