Economic Development

Acworth is located in the foothills of the North Georgia mountains and is nestled along the banks of Lake Acworth and Lake Allatoona, hence its nickname “The Lake City.” The city boasts a rich history, a charming downtown, abundant outdoor recreational activities, a vibrant restaurant scene, and an active festival and events calendar. Acworth is one of the best, family-friendly destinations in the Atlanta region.

Acworth is a place where you can truly unwind and get a taste of the simple life. The historic downtown is quaint and gives visitors a turn-of the-century vibe, like a discovery just made. But walk into any of the charming buildings that line Main street, and the quaint notion is replaced by great food prepared by talented chefs, and truly unique boutique businesses. Lake Acworth is just two blocks away with a pristine (well maintained) beach where the kids will be in heaven.

Acworth is one of the best places to live in Georgia. Acworth is an All-America City home to a population of 22,336+ residents and one of the fastest growing cities in the metro-Atlanta region. Businesses benefit from a low tax rate and residents enjoy a high quality of life. Our proactive city government and economic development team are poised to work with your business for its long term success. The Economic Development Department serves the city by encouraging economic growth through attracting and retaining business and industry, promoting small business development, supporting commercial revitalization and encouraging tourism.
