Family hiking at Sawnee Mountain in Cumming, Georgia
Cumming

Whether it’s glamping on Lake Lanier, hiking to the beautiful Indian Seats of Sawnee Mountain, or enjoying an evening of unforgettable food and beverage experiences, there’s adventure to be had at every altitude in Forsyth County, Georgia (or as the locals call it, “FoCo”). The city of Cumming, the county’s sole incorporated area, is situated just 40 miles northeast of Atlanta and along GA 400’s Hospitality Highway.

Outdoor lovers will enjoy The Big Creek Greenway, which boasts over 11 miles of pathway journeying through open green spaces, natural areas, woods, and creek views — perfect for walking, jogging, biking, and inline skating. The county is also home to the state of Georgia’s #1 park system!

If your idea of a good time involves some retail therapy, you’ll love exploring areas like Halcyon, a 135-acre mixed-use development and gathering space featuring curated shops, chef-driven restaurants, modern hotel rooms, and green spaces, or The Collection at Forsyth, an outdoor lifestyle shopping destination, which also features premier national retailers, a plethora of great dining experiences, and entertainment. Enjoy fine restaurants, shop local merchants, or experience fun outdoor events in the charming Vickery Village.

You’ll be in great “spirits” here, as well. FoCo is home to incredible local breweries Cherry Street Brewing and NoFo Brew Co., as well as Georgia’s local and award-winning vodka and bourbon distillery, Legends.

Be sure to check out hallmark events such as the 10-day Cumming Country Fair and Festival, 4th of July Celebration, Cumming Christmas Parade and Festival, and the Cumming Steam, Antique Tractor, and Gas Engine Exposition.
