Whitfield County’s broad industrial base and outstanding business climate may be the reason you are thinking of moving your company here, but life is not all about business. The Dalton area offers such a diversified and unique quality of life that you may soon be thinking of it not only as a home for your company, but as a home for you and your family.

Whether you enjoy the outdoors, team sports, shopping and dining, or the arts, the Dalton area holds a number of recreational opportunities for your entire family. The city is just beginning a multi-million dollar, long-range plan to turn the town’s center into a green-scape of parks and walking paths that will enhance the vitality of the entire city.

Snuggled in the mountains of Northwest Georgia, the Dalton area is an outdoorsman’s paradise with camping, hiking, swimming, walking, boating, hunting, and fishing all within easy access from your Whitfield County home. Work is ongoing to expand the area’s hiking and biking trails, and to make the Conasauga River more accessible to canoers and kayakers.

From recreation league sports to Friday night high school football, are also passionately followed in Whitfield County. There are a number of recreational and competitive leagues for children and adults of all ages, and all of the area high schools boast successful athletic programs with many sports for both boys and girls.

Combine all that with a vibrant arts scene and a rich history that will encompass the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, and you will find that Dalton is an excellent place for both your family and your business to call home.
