Euharlee is all about families. The city council makes family-friendly events a priority. Seasonal events such as The Easter Egg Hunt, Food Truck Fridays in the summer, and the Fall Festival are among residential favorites. The city’s largest park, Joe Cowan, is the perfect place for any event, game, or just to hang out. It boasts walking trails, a tot play area, tennis courts, multi-use fields, basketball courts, indoor and outdoor batting cages, baseball and softball fields and a fully functional concession stand (5).
Kate Gobbi, director of the Euharlee Welcome Center & History Museum, stated in a recent article, “The new special events steering committee that the city council established last fall — they really have taken [the egg hunt] and run with it this year. Just like a lot of our other events, like the fall festival [and] some of the camps we’ve done in the past, we like to provide fun, family events for our community. We really like to be able to make things accessible for all children, no matter what your income level is, no matter what your background is,” (6).
Location, Location, Location!
Euharlee boasts small town living with big city opportunity. One resident’s review says it best “Euharlee is a quaint little town with great access to nearby cities as well as the bustling metropolis of Atlanta. The town provides a balance of the quiet, bucolic rural experience and opportunity,” (7).
Euharlee is located almost equidistant from the great cities of Atlanta and Chattooga and is just outside of Cartersville. Many residents enjoy the employment and business opportunities of the larger cities and then come home to the peace and quiet that Euharlee offers. Another resident review sums it up, “Great place to live and raise a family. Far enough for the city to not worry about locking your doors at night, but close enough to do day trips and be at home and sleep in your own bed at night. Smack in the middle of 2 airports so you can fly from Atlanta or Chattanooga. Small town living and beautiful community,”(7).
