Throughout the city of Dalton, you are always greeted by the misty Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance. These mountains are part of the Appalachian Mountain range and include the highest peak in the entire Appalachian chain, Mt. Mitchell. So for outdoor enthusiasts, you only need to travel just outside of Dalton for amazing hiking, camping, and other recreational activities. The nearest state park in the Blue Ridge Mountains to Dalton is Fort Mountain State Park. Here, hikers, mountain bikers, and horseback riders can find beautiful trails that weave through the hardwood forests, streams, blueberry thickets, and lakes of the park.
The Northwest Georgia
In Dalton's backyard is the area's largest convention center, the Northwest Georgia Trade and Convention Center. While this brings many out-of-towners to Georgia, it also is a great entertainment venue for the residents of Dalton. With a maximum seating capacity of 2,100, many sports events, such as the Xtreme Indoor Football League, and local sports teams like the Georgia Rampage, play here. If you have more refined taste, this convention center is also the home of the L'Abri Symphony Orchestra, which holds several concerts here each season giving residents a taste of classical music.
