Downtown Dalton, the home of live music, craft brewers and distillers,  and so much that will floor you!

Welcome to Dalton!

Conveniently located on I-75 between Atlanta and Chattanooga, you’ll find the Carpet Capital of the World will “floor” you with our southern hospitality and an exciting mix of tradition and modern flair.

The Cherokee called this area The Enchanted Lands for the beauty and serenity of the Appalachian Mountain foothills. Later the ingenuity and entrepreneurship of a 15-year-old girl, Catherine Evans-Whitener, would revolutionize textile production, expanding Dalton to a worldwide industry leader. We’ve come so far, but the people have never lost the connection with this land that has enchanted so many for generations.

No matter where you’re visiting from or how long you’re staying, you can always feel like you are never far from home in Dalton.

We’re here to give you The Local Experience when looking for treks through the great outdoors, dining and drinks, live music, entertainment, history, mystery and more. Explore to learn more and Let Us Floor You!

We are here to welcome you to our city and help you find whatever you’re looking for (maybe a few things you didn’t expect). Learn more about Dalton’s textile history in the Bandy Heritage Center exhibit, detailing the original quilt tufting process that produced the beautiful chenille bedspreads that gave us the name Peacock Alley.
