Local Reviews

This is a safe neighborhood. Close to downtown Mexican restaurant. Prefer to take the kids to school.

I like living in my neighborhood because it's a drop shot as in walking distance to the most important places

The mall is only 5 miles away but crooks sit tn the parking lot and when they see a person with shopping bags they rob them.

I believe what makes our neighborhood unique are the relationships that have formed between neighbors.

My thing is that I can do everything I want here in the safe way. People are friendly and we also have many good restaurants.

I like my neighborhood because it is small and quiet. The neighbors all look out for each other and watch out for unsafe things.

About

Canton, GA

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.

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.
