Dalton is a beautiful city nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Dalton’s location makes it ideal for enjoyable day hikes or long wilderness excursions on picturesque trails and nearby mountains.

If you like to hunt, fish, swim, check out farm life or Arabian horses, play laser tag, disc and miniature golf, visit historical civil war and Cherokee Indian sites, or catch an art exhibit or play, we’ve got plenty of choices.
