Press Room


Only 25 minutes from the heart of Atlanta, yet tucked quietly away, the City of Norcross is a charming antidote to modern suburbia. Tree-lined sidewalks invite leisurely strolls past classic antebellum, Victorian and Craftsman style homes, windingthrough beautiful parks and into the revitalized downtown. There, century-old buildings house eclectic shops and boutiques, art galleries, a performing arts center and community theatre and excellent dining. Live music, art and a year-round calendar full of events create a dynamic vibe engaging people of all ages and backgrounds.
