THE GREAT OUTDOORS

We're a full-service outdoor outfitter, and we do everything from camping to hiking, kayaks, paddle boards, stuff you can't find at big-box stores. We have a lot of local brands, and we try to stock a lot of products from the Southeast. We've been working with the city to set up some mobile locations on Acworth’s three beaches, too. We offer rentals for kayaks, paddle boards, paddle boats, and canoes....

2020-06-10T09:47:01-05:00

COWAN MILL EVENT SPACE

Built in the 19th century, the Mill has been a fixture on the Acworth landscape for generations, and in its new life as a wedding venue, it’s getting a long-overdue facelift (complete with covered patio, outdoor fireplaces, and one stunning chandelier). But you don’t have to get hitched to enjoy the newly revitalized Mill. Kevin and his family hope to share this special landmark with Acworth through community events, too...

Henry & Claudia Chandler – Henry’s Louisiana Grill

2020-05-28T01:01:07-05:00

SOUTHERN CAJUN FUSION... YUM!

"It’s Southern, fusion, and Cajun. My first job back from Europe was in a fusion restaurant. The Southern part comes from my upbringing — for 18 years I was brought up on a farm and my nanny did Southern cooking. That’s where you get Louisiana alligator flash-fried with a hoisin sauce, topped with remoulade. We do traditional gumbo, etouffee, and jambalaya, but then we have Nanny Castell’s fried chicken plate, served over..."

2020-05-28T00:56:19-05:00

DRINKS AND DELICIOUSNESS IN DOWNTOWN

Since quietly opening their doors on New Year’s Eve of 2015, Brix on Main has become one of downtown Acworth’s go-to date night spots, where guests can indulge in everything from mac ‘n cheese to martini flights (or, preferably, all of the above). "We offer the organic produce; we make sure we get the best quality olive oils and balsamic vinegars from Italy. I only use 100% grass-fed Angus beef and wild-caught fish...."

FALL IN LOVE WITH FOOD

Danielle Hildebrand – Pearl’s Spa

2020-06-09T14:56:55-05:00

SPA & APOTHECARY... HEAL WELL

Pearl’s is a family affair: the spa is not only named for Danielle’s grandmother, but the space itself is also the former home of Danielle’s mother’s spa. And, according to Danielle, it couldn’t have succeeded without the Acworth community showing up and supporting her. We sat down with Danielle to chat about what she loves about Acworth...

2020-05-27T15:06:30-05:00

HISTORIC PRESERVATION & TOURISM

When Abbie Parks isn’t hosting cocktail hour on the front porch of her historic Acworth home or jetting around Main Street with her tiny canine companion, Radar, she’s probably working to share her love for the city with others. That might mean welcoming 20,000 visitors into town for the annual Acworth ArtFest she helps organize, or campaigning to preserve a historic landmark. We caught up with Abbie to chat about her favorite pieces of hidden history in Acworth...
