Overview of Canton

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Canton is the picturesque county seat of Cherokee County. A community with a long history, the city has seen rapid growth in recent years due to its convenient proximity to Atlanta and distinct natural charm.

People looking for apartments for rent in Canton will love the city’s small town feel and historic downtown, as well as its rich outdoor surroundings.

Living in Canton, GA

Once at the center of the Cherokee Native Americans' historic lands, Canton has proven to be an attractive destination for generations of settlers. The historic city was incorporated in 1832 and named for China’s famed silk production region. Although the founders hoped to establish a silk industry of their own, the city instead grew as a major center for denim production. Today, the city of around 23,000 is a busy county seat and popular draw for Atlanta transplants looking for a calmer living environment.

Residents of Canton apartments can take advantage of its walkable center, its scenic environment and its access to the area’s extensive recreational and business opportunities.

Canton Work and Study

While some Canton students choose to study at one of the many universities in nearby Marietta or Atlanta, the local campus of Chattahoochee Technical College provides a convenient educational option. Minutes to the north of the city, Reinhardt University is another great area college choice.

As the county seat of Cherokee County, Canton’s largest employers are the county government and schools, as well as Northside Hospital-Cherokee. Rapid growth has driven retail development in recent years, while aerospace parts manufacturer Universal Alloy Corporation has a major local facility. Canton is the headquarters of Piolax, a metal parts manufacturer, rounding out the manufacturing base. Many residents also choose to commute to Atlanta or other nearby cities.

Rentals in Canton, GA and Cost of Living

Rapid development in recent years has driven demand for rentals in Canton, but the market has largely kept up with a solid stock of housing at affordable prices. Around one third of residents choose to rent.

U.S. Census Bureau data showed the median gross rent from 2006 to 2010 was $799. Additional research found one bedroom apartments renting for between $600 and $2,195 per month.

Canton residents also enjoy a cost of living index that is more than 5 points below the national average, making Canton apartments all the more affordable to rent.

Canton Attractions and Special Events

The natural resources and attractions provided by Canton’s location in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains are a large part of what makes it such a great place to live. Chattahoochee-Oconee National Forest and Springer Mountain, the beginning of the famous Appalachian Trail, are only an hour away, while nearby Lake Allatoona is a regional destination for boating, swimming and fishing. A great local parks system adds to the area fun, while golfers can head to any one of the county’s half-dozen courses.

Downtown Canton offers shopping, art and dining in a historic setting, and residents will enjoy strolling the distinctive city streets, which come alive during seasonal events and monthly block parties. The Cherokee Arts Center provides art activities and hosts an annual Festival of the Arts. Twice a year, Canton celebrates its Cherokee heritage with pow wows and related festivals. With a lineup of regularly scheduled events, Canton residents always have something fun at their disposal.

The Dixie Speedway in neighboring Woodstock is a popular attraction, and Canton residents can always head to Atlanta for top tier shopping, dining and entertainment.
