Historic Banning Mill
Adventurous West Georgians can find an outlet for their adrenaline habit at Historic Banning Mills. Do not let the name fool you. This place is about much more than just history. The huge facility is home to one of the biggest zipline tours in the country. This means that if you are not afraid of heights, you can visit Banning Mills and soar through the air and treetops while strapped to a harness. If this does not sound like your cup of tea, the resort also has a more relaxing side, with a bed and breakfast and RV campsite.
Colleges and Universi
If you are looking to earn a degree while you are in Carrollton, you will have a couple of options to choose from. If technical school is on the docket for you, you can consider West Georgia Technical College's Carrollton campus. If a four-year degree program is more your speed, consider attending the University of West Georgia, which has its main campus in Carrollton. Both of these schools are public and are part of a wider network of state schools in Georgia, meaning this may be an affordable and convenient option for Carrollton residents who want to settle down and start studying.
Each spring, Carrollton designates one May weekend as the date for Mayfest, an arts and crafts fair that takes place in the city's quaint downtown area. This fair, which may be among the largest of its kind in the region, features the work of local artisans, including hand-thrown clay goods, woven baskets, paintings, and more. If arts and crafts are not really your thing, Mayfest still likely has something to entertain you. Along with the main event, activities like a climbing wall and bouncy castle for the kids, as well as live outdoor concerts for the adults will make everyone feel festive.
