Fulton County, Georgia
Metro Atlanta County Guide
Situated in North Central Georgia, with 600 square miles of land and 800,000 residents, Fulton County is the state’s largest and most populous. It is strategically positioned at the heart of the 20-county Atlanta Metropolitan Statistical Area.

The City of Atlanta, the state capital, is also the county seat. That makes it the business, legal, financial and communications center of Georgia and the Southeast, a Mecca for tourists and conventioneers just passing through - and for business people looking for a new place to call home.

Headquarters to Fortune 500 companies and international banks, Atlanta also houses significant government, retail and industrial operations within its borders.

With a convenient mix of housing, ranging from posh high-rises and Victorian mansions to quaint bungalows, Atlanta offers variety in intown living. Opportunities to enjoy the arts and culture, sports and entertainment, dining and relaxing are all easily found in the metropolitan area.

But Atlanta isn’t all there is to Fulton County....

North of the city, high-quality living is one of Fulton County’s biggest assets. Close-knit communities such as Sandy Springs, Roswell, Alpharetta and Mountain Park feature a wide range of middle- to upper-income single and multifamily residences - plus all the benefits of the suburban lifestyle.

North Fulton County is also an area where business is booming. In fact, it boasts more Class A office space than downtown Atlanta.

South of the city, Fulton County offers superior accessibility to road, rail and air transportation. Home to Hartsfield Atlanta International Airport, one of the world’s busiest, South Fulton County is also the hub for two major railroads.

Communities such as College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Union City and Palmetto - not to mention Southwest Atlanta - offer both suburban and small-town living opportunities. Long-established, middle- and upper-income neighborhoods feature modestly priced land and upscale housing for residential and business buyers and tenants. With two-thirds of its acreage still available for development, South Fulton County is a veritable gold mine of opportunities.

All this diversity means that whatever you’re looking for - big-city chic, or small-town charm, slick commercial space or a serviceable warehouse - you’ll find it in Fulton County.
