Kennesaw’s combination of small-town charm, location close to both I-75 and I-575, and plenty of shops, restaurants, parks, and cultural facilities, make it the perfect place to stay when visiting the northern Atlanta Metro area.
Visit Smith-Gilbert Gardens and take a leisurely stroll through verdant plants, flowers, and original sculptures. Or take in the downtown attractions around Depot Park and learn about Civil War history at the Smithsonian-affiliated Southern Museum and Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Pack a picnic lunch and head to Swift-Cantrell Park, watch the skateboarders on the Street League-certified plaza and in the bowl and flow course, and let Rover run in the dog park.
Kennesaw has a well-earned reputation for putting on the best festivals in the area, including the annual Big Shanty Arts & Crafts Festival and the Pigs & Peaches BBQ Festival. And, be sure to stop into Dry County Brewing Company, Burnt Hickory Brewery, and Lazy Guy Distillery to sample craft beer and spirits.
