      Comfortably South of Atlanta (Henry County's Slogan)

      Like Henry County's slogan, McDonough is "comfortably south of the center of big city Atlanta, only 30 miles away.
      ATL airport is even closer. Interstates connect you to everywhere (I-75 bisects McDonough).

      While growth is filling in lots of the southern crescent of Metro Atlanta, McDonough still has open space and farms and lakes nearby.

      The signature icon for McDonough is the historic town square with its Henry County Courthouse, historic shops and year-round events.

      Many other Main Street communities are envious of McDonough's eclectic downtown eating places.

      Many movies shoot here for its unique look and locations.

      Big box retail and national chains are here for your service.

      Unique and compelling sites are in and around McDonough and you can explore famous very urban and very rural destinations within pleasant drives. There's a NASCAR track, a wildlife sanctuary, pick-your-own farms and re-enactments within stone's throw.
