The City of Hoschton is a small community and a wonderful place to call home. It is located just off Interstate 85 in Jackson County in North Georgia, about 35 miles northeast of the Atlanta perimeter. Jackson County is included in the 10 fastest growing counties in the country yet offers an abundance of open spaces and unspoiled views of the state's Piedmont Region - just south of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The climate is moderate, pleasant, and enjoyable for a wide variety of outdoor activities. Hoschton mixes the advantage of small town living and the convenience of being less than 45 minutes from urban areas such as Athens, Gainesville and metro Atlanta for shopping, dining and entertainment. Local attractions include the Road Atlanta and Chateau Elan, as well as several antique shops.
