Just slightly north of Atlanta on Interstate 75, is Cartersville, GA. Cartersville is a convenient vacation destination that is one of Georgia’s gems. Downtown Cartersville is known for charming boutiques and memorable local restaurants. On our visit, we photographed the beautiful southern charm of a courthouse and a train traveling by. On the other side of the train tracks is the historic area of town. There we had a great lunch at Mellow Mushroom. Mellow Mushroom is a well-known pizza chain that originated in Atlanta.
Just west of Cartersville is Euharlee and the slower pace of the 1800s. The town is home to many original buildings and the infamous Euharlee Covered Bridge. It was a delightful trip and one in which we were privileged to be there to photograph.
