Nestled in the Alcovy River basin between the urban sprawl of Atlanta and classic Athens, Monroe, Ga. offers the best of both worlds. Our rich history draws visitors to Monroe; our small town atmosphere, engaging cultural life and high tech capabilities entice them to stay. Monroe’s colorful history is typified by antebellum homes, historic downtown, and venerable government buildings. Monroe’s future is exemplified by intermingling these historic areas with planned residential growth and high-tech industries.
Walk through the downtown historic district, and you’ll find friendly business owners, a “small town feel,” and a variety of stores and dining options, including the south’s finest antiques. With events going on all year, such as the Classic Car Show, First Friday Summer Concert Series or the Downtown Farmers Market, you are sure to find something for every member of your family!
