What is a southern state like Georgia without its charming small towns? There are thousands of charming towns in Georgia, but I had to pick some of the best for this list! Here are 11 of the most beautiful, charming small towns in Georgia:
1) Perry, GA
Perry is a quaint town in the Warner Robins metropolitan area. It has beautiful parks and a charming little historic town center. It is also home to the annual Georgia National Fair. As of 2013, its residents numbered nearly 15,000.
2) Fayetteville, GA
This shot of Starr Mill's Waterfalls in Fayetteville is just one of the beautiful country scenes you can find there. Located south of Atlanta, it is one of the best places for young families and retirees as named by Nerd Wallet and Forbes respectively. This town has less than 15,000 residents, according to the the 2010 census.
3) Stockbridge, GA
Stockbridge is a beautiful town in Henry County. It is home to the magnificent Panola Mountain and beautiful farmland. Back in 2000, this town had less than 10,000 residents. It has grown exponentially since and was up to nearly 28,000 residents in 2013.
4) Cumming, GA
Cumming is located in Forsyth County--which is a gorgeous all over! It's population is about 5,100 residents.
5) Peachtree City, GA
The home of the golf cart "car" and the land of many golf courses! The land and properties in this city are stunning! The population here is almost 35,000.
6) Jekyll Island, GA
Jekyll Island hands-down has to be one of the best small towns to live in in Georgia. The weather and scenery are just to die for! It is quite expensive to live here, and it seems to be more of a retirement community with the median home price over 400K and the average age of about 68! The population is under 1,000 residents.

7) Lookout Mountain, GA
Located in Walker County and home to the famous Lover's Leap, this small town has a little over 1,600 residents and a whole bunch of personality! It's a popular tourist spot--and it's no wonder why!
8) Canton, GA
Laurel Garden Club (pictured here) is located inside beautiful Canton, GA. Canton is located inside of Cherokee County and has grown in leaps and bounds since the 2000 census. In 2000, there were just over 7,700 residents and in 2010 there were over 22,000!
9) Ball Ground, GA
Another local treasure right inside of Cherokee County, Ball Ground is a small community of nearly 1,500 residents. It is also home to the spectacular Gibbs Garden and other quaint country homes.
10) Senoia, GA
Senoia is located near Peachtree City in Fayette County. It is just as beautiful and charming as Peachtree City. This historical small town only holds about 3,700 residents.
