Dalton is nestled at the base of the picturesque, impressive North Georgia Mountains. This four-season community offers outdoor enthusiasts many choices for year-round enjoyment. Beautiful natural resources are readily available to provide lake access, kayaking, hiking, mountain and/or road biking. If you enjoy a more metropolitan feel, several cities are a short 30 minute to 1 hour drive. Located a few hours from the beaches or the mountains, living here allows an easy day trip to enjoy the surrounding area. The area is rich in history and cultural diversity, and provides a blend of outstanding educational, cultural and recreational resources.
Also of note, is what you won’t find in Dalton – lengthy commutes, high crime rates, or an increased cost of living. All of these, partnered with honorable southern values, make Dalton a family-friendly place to live.
If you’re looking to live in a family friendly community with excellent schools, this opportunity should interest you. I hope I have the chance to tell you more about this wonderful position.
