Explore Atlanta’s Best Communities: Canton, GeorgiaCanton, Georgia offers a quaint, family-friendly community rich in history and surrounded by beautiful natural scenery. In the latest vlog from The Providence Group, Susie Proffitt with Atlanta’s Best Communities explores Canton and everything it has to offer the surrounding area and its residents.

The City of Canton is ranked among one of the best places to live in the metro-Atlanta area. Conveniently located half-way between Atlanta and the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains, Canton truly offers the best of both worlds. Residents can easily spend the day exploring the busy city or relax among the foothills, enjoying scenic mountain views.

Canton residents have access to a number of amenities within the town’s vibrant community including the Etowah River Park, Hickory Log Creek Reservoir and several other local parks that are continuously adding new trail plans. Canton is currently trying to use new trails to connect the Etowah River to the historically restored Downtown Canton known for its exciting events, incredible entertainment, charming shops and tasty local restaurants.

One local downtown restaurant that shares Downtown Canton’s historic spirit is R & M Hoagie Shop. Just walking into the restaurant creates a nostalgic feel with its antique décor that includes shoeshine chairs, a phone booth and old photos of Downtown Canton throughout the decades.

Opened in 1972, R & M was founded by the parents of owner Mike DeLuco. The family-run restaurant has not changed its menu since opening, meaning that the same sandwiches made today are the same ones made 47 years ago. If you’re planning on visiting and in need of a good sandwich recommendation, try Donna’s Special.
