Located in the Northern portion of Fulton County just 22 miles from Atlanta, Roswell is known for being both family-friendly and dog-friendly, with so much to offer its residents.

In 2020, Roswell was recognized as one of the safest areas to live in our region — it appeared on SafeWise’s list of the 50 safest towns in Georgia, as well as on their list of the 100 safest towns in the United States. Roswell works hard to promote community spirit and pride within its residents, and the stately historic district gives curious visitors and locals the chance to explore the heritage of the town, as well enjoy upscale shopping, dining and leisure.
Because Roswell is situated on a picturesque stretch of the Chattahoochee River, there are plenty of greenspaces, waterfront views and water activities to suit all nature lovers. Many of Roswell’s parks are riverfront, including Azalea Park, Riverside Park, Roswell RiverWalk, and more. Are you into history?

And exciting seasonal events run the gamut, from the Annual Roswell Arts Festival and the Roswell Lavender Festival to the Roswell Beer Festival and the Roswell Roots Festival.
