Complementing this valuable transportation asset is Atlanta’s Hartsfield/Jackson International, the busiest airport in the US, located less than an hour away. In addition, Cartersville offers a superb local airport capable of handling and maintaining corporate jet traffic. Rail service is also available to any area of the country.
