Metro South Counties

Travel south of the city limits of Atlanta and you will discover the Metro South region - Clayton, Coweta, Fayette, Henry and South Fulton counties. Over half a million people call Metro South home because of the quality, affordable housing, the proximity to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and the recreational opportunities such as golf and tennis.

Metro South has a certain mystique about it. After all, it was home to Tara, the fictional home of the quintessential Southern heroine, Scarlett O'Hara. Fine, southern homes can be found throughout Metro South, though Tara does not, and never has existed.

Metro South is home to many fine golf and country clubs. One of the most popular golfing communities is Peachtree City: its winding golf cart paths span 60 miles, connecting three golf courses with numerous neighborhoods, shopping areas, schools and recreational facilities. The Metro South region is well known for its appreciation and support for the arts. Clayton College and State University boasts an internationally acclaimed recital facility, Spivey Hall. This 400-seat performance hall attracts artists world-wide, drawn to it for its excellent acoustics and construction.
