Named after an early mayor of Atlanta, this small town has not only an interesting history but a great location. Once just a wide spot on an old Indian trail, Norcross gained notice when the Richmond-Danville railroad was completed. It became a resort area for people wanting to escape the rapidly growing Atlanta.
Norcross, GA has a surprisingly walkable downtown area, and most of the city is accessible within 10 minutes via automobile. Atlanta is only a short drive away via nearby I-85 making nights out on the town easy.
