But Cartersville also offers its residents a taste of the beautiful Georgia wilderness, with several bodies of water and plenty of wooded space close at hand.

Hiking and Boating Re

There are two main features at Red Top Mountain Sate Park: the forested park itself and its centerpiece Lake Allatoona. This means that park visitors can spend their day on the 12,000-acre lake or in the woods of Red Top Mountain, or they can camp overnight and do both. Lake Allatoona offers a wide variety of recreation options, from fishing to waterskiing and swimming. There are more than 15 miles of trails suitable for hiking in the park, including a short paved trail that leads to a historic 1860s homestead, giving an educational dimension to the park.

Two Very Different Mu

Cartersville is home to two unique museums that offer visitors two very distinct experiences. The Booth Western Art Museum collects and exhibits art that is dedicated to showcasing the American West. It is not only the only museum of its kind in the Southeastern U.S., but also one of the largest art museums in Georgia. It boasts an impressive collection and was named as a Smithsonian Affiliate in 2006 thanks in part to its size. For a different museum experience in Cartersville, check out the Tellus Science Museum, which includes a planetarium in addition to other features like mineral and fossil galleries.

The Historic Etowah I

The Etowah Indian Mounds State Historic Site is an important archaeological and historic resource that has been respectfully preserved even after native peoples were forced from this land by white settlement. This educational historic site consists of six earthen mounds used for burial and ceremonial purposes, in addition to the ruins of an ancient village of the Mississippian Culture peoples who built the mounds. Dating back well before the Cherokee and Creek people settled in this era, estimates are that the mounds were built sometime between 1000 and 1500 CE. Today, you can visit the site and learn more about the people who lived here.
