Less than an hour’s ride north of Atlanta on 1-75, Acworth rests in the northern fringes of one of the nation’s largest metropolitan areas. Nestled in the hills of northwest Cobb County, Acworth is an amazing setting to rent an RV and explore the natural beauty that Georgia has to offer, with its close proximity to many attractions.
Although Acworth boasts plenty of nearby sights to see, the small town of just over 20 thousand people serves as an ideal jumping off point for your RV adventures, and even has a Walmart Supercenter where you can park and resupply before your trip. This small town absolutely oozes charm with its vibrant Main Street village, complete with many boutiques, trendy restaurants, and live music venues. Just outside Acworth lie two large lakes, which makes it a wonderful RV rental city in the summertime. Also, you can drive a few short hours in any direction, and stumble on some other quaint towns such as Helen, a small mountain resort town with Bavarian style buildings near the Chattahoochee National Forest, and Athens, the cultural hub home to the University of Georgia.
The Great Outdoors
Georgia is absolutely loaded with natural beauty, and you would be hard-pressed to find a more ideal state to explore with an RV rental. Just outside of the appropriately named “Lake City” of Acworth, you can find yourself taking a dip in Lake Acworth, and Lake Altoona, both of which containing multiple boat ramps, marinas, and beaches to enjoy the gorgeous summertime weather. These lakes are great for all sorts of fishing and other assorted watersports and even served as the location for the 2017 National Wakeboard Championships. Tucked neatly in between these lakes, you can find both George Washington Carver State Park and Red Top Mountain State Park which attract many visitors each summer from Atlanta, and the rest of the country.
If you wish to explore more of northern Georgia, you can rent a motorhome in Acworth and take off to visit the picturesque Chattahoochee National Forest, which contains over 2,000 miles of rivers and streams, 450 miles of hiking trails, and stunning scenery that will make you fall in love with great outdoors.
Northern Georgia is also renowned for its breathtaking natural waterfalls, like the Amicalola Falls and the Tallulah Falls and Gorge, just to name a few.
If you are feeling really adventurous, you can dip over the border to Georgia’s neighbor to the west, Alabama, and enjoy the Talladega National Forest, a 400,000-acre paradise of pristine wilderness and rolling hills of pine trees.
Lucky for you, Acworth and its surrounding area contain an extraordinary amount of friendly and well-kept campgrounds and RV parks, another reason why it such a model camper rental city. One of the very best places to park your motorhome rental in Acworth is the Allatoona Landing Marine Resort, located right on Lake Allatoona. This lake boasts 12 thousand surface acres of waterfront and a variety of marinas and boat rentals to keep you and your family occupied.
Also, on Lake Allatoona, you can visit McKinney Campground, a more laid-back park most ideal for people that enjoy fishing. Just across the lake from McKinney Campground, you can find Holiday Harbor Marina and Resort, which again, caters to people that enjoy water sports and boating activities. You may rent a boat here while staying in your rental motorhome, or you can even choose to dock your own boat here at their wonderful marina and facilities. Old Highway 41 #3 Campground and Red Top Mountain State Park both prove to be great places to take your camper rental in Acworth, as they too have waterfront access and beautiful beaches. If you have not picked up on the theme yet, Acworth is an incredibly friendly and accommodating place to rent an RV, and you will not be disappointed with this summertime paradise!
Exploring the City
If you find yourself tired of the outdoors, perhaps take a day trip down to Atlanta, one of the country’s most visited cities, and be sure to try some southern-style BBQ that Atlanta is known for. Absolutely loaded with popular attractions, this city also serves as a fabulous place to rent an RV, to get a taste of city life.
With limitless ideas as to what you can do in the city, it can be tough to figure out where to start. You can tour the Coca-Cola Museum if you are a fan of the beverage, where you are able to see the history of the company and all of its previous incarnations, as well as sample many different types of soft drinks. Right around the corner lies the educational Georgia Aquarium, home to over 120 thousand aquatic animals, and a prime place to learn about the environment while contributing to the study and preservation of sea creatures.
If you are a sports fan, you can visit the Mercedes-Benz Superdome to catch an Atlanta Falcons game, or head on over to SunTrust Park to see the Braves play some baseball. You’ll find it easy to enjoy yourself when you book an RV in Cobb County, no matter what you decide to do!
