New Home Communities in Canton

The fresh cut flowers, old red brick buildings, and rustic lamp posts are merely part of what makes Canton wonderful. The historic charm you sense walking through downtown has been this city's stronghold from the beginning. After being founded in 1833 it didn't take long for people to start flooding in, creating the social center for Cherokee County.

Today Canton is still quite the social center, the city is filled with friendly faces, and is a great place to plant your roots whether you're accepting retirement, or starting a family. Every year Canton hosts an array of events perfect for all ages. On any given day Heritage Park is a great place to go for a stroll on the nature trails, or enjoy sitting along the river on the greenway, but once a year it is transformed for the annual PIGnic. This family fun packed day consists of face painting, cook-offs, hayrides, live music, great food, and an inviting atmosphere.

Since you can't throw a festival every weekend Canton has come up with many other activities for you as well. You can take art class at the Cherokee Arts Center, catch a play, show, or performance at the historically renovated Canton Theater, or attend a dance party at the Cherokee Rhythm & Smooth. You can go fishing down by the river or visit one of the beaches, great for that sun kissed look. Just outside of Canton you'll find a couple interesting places. Cagle Dairy is a family run farm where you can run through the corn maize for hours, warm up beside the bonfire, close your eyes in the Haunted Barn, or try out your cow milking skills with a demonstration. If that doesn't sound fun enough there is still Tanglewood Farms. This miniature farm has left its mark on Georgia. Between the "Wild West", pony rides, bungee jump bull riding, tree house outfit, and friendly little animals it is sure to equate to a blissful experience.

While the road congestion is little to none, shopping is what you have to look out for. This growing city has made it easy for the charming shops, and quaint cafes to stay in business all these years. In addition there are a couple malls perfect for your mainstream shopping fix, and delicious diners. With Atlanta just over 30 miles away it is the perfect place for a weekend getaway or an extended date to the Atlanta nightlife while you still have the babysitter on the clock. And speaking of kids, parents will be grateful for the educational opportunities offered to them from the great school districts in the area like the Cherokee County School District and Gwinnett County School District.

The city's family oriented atmosphere appeals to all ages, and though it may be a bit smaller than the metroplex you'll quickly find yourself busy living the Canton life. With numerous master-planned communities nearby, home hunting will be easy with New Home Source's help.
