If you are looking for a days adventure, try walking the grounds of Etowah Indian Mounds. This place is very well-preserved and has a great museum.

We had stopped in Cartersville & picked up a brochure at the Information Centre on the Indian mounds, so decided to go out and have a look. It was well worth the visit, the exhibition, movie, gift shop & staff were very informative. It was...More
