Things to do

American history runs strong in Kennesaw

It was way back in 1864 that the wooded ridges of Kennesaw Mountain hosted one of the most dramatic battles of the Atlanta Campaign during the American Civil War. Today, that history is chronicled at the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, which has film screenings and interpretative hiking routes to help showcase the skirmishes that resulted in the Confederate victory. Kennesaw is also home to the Southern Museum, which has exhibits dedicated to the locomotive industry in Georgia and beyond – expect venerable train and tales of the Great Locomotive Chase.


Lazing and learning in Kennesaw

If you like the sound of an outdoors adventure in the Georgian backcountry, hopping between lakeside beaches and strolling state parks, camping in the pine woods and picnicking on the Red Top Mountain, then you can get Kennesaw vacation rentals in the surrounding hills that will suit just fine. Alternatively, you could make your base in the town itself, where Main Street leads almost directly to historic battlefield tours, and connections to downtown Atlanta open up live music venues and sightseeing aplenty.


Enjoy the summer climate in Kennesaw

Between fishing trips on Allatoona Lake and hiking the interpretative trails of the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, you're going to be spending plenty of time in the great Georgian outdoors. That means there's really no better seasons to book you Kennesaw vacation rentals than the spring and summertime, which typically range from May to August in this corner of the South. Expect some hot, humid weather, and the occasional downpour, but nothing that won't stop you from exploring the Civil War story.

Natural features

Leaving Atlanta behind in Kennesaw

Kennesaw is the stepping stone between urban Atlanta and the northern backcountry of Georgia. As the city fades away, the spindly fingers of Allatoona Lake take over, hosting reserves like the Red Top Mountain and the George Washington Carver State Park. These are awash with pine forests and camping grounds, have freshwater beaches and boating lakes. For one of America's vaster wildernesses, you'll need to keep going north. Soon, you'll be cruising through the rising peaks of Appalachia, with the sprawling Chattahoochee National Forest cascading down the hills hiding its black bears and waterfalls.
