The motto of this friendly Atlanta suburb is "Come ToMorrow!", which perfectly captures the warm and welcoming spirit of the folks who live here! Our Morrow vacation rentals offer lovely accommodations for business and leisure travelers who prefer the peaceful atmosphere of the suburbs, but still want to be in close proximity to Atlanta's most popular attractions.
Though Morrow is small in size (only 3.4 square miles), its high energy, rich history, and dynamic locals make it as likely to leave as lasting an impression on you as its big sister to the north.
Morrow is a rapidly growing town with new businesses, residential developments, and restaurants opening on a frequent basis. There is plenty to do and plenty to see! History buffs will be happy to learn that the Georgia Archives, which preserves all historical documents of the state, are located here and open to the public. In the southern part of town, Southlake Mall features two flagship stores and great spots to grab a bite after grabbing some vacation essentials.
Morrow is also home to Clayton State University, where there are always exciting happenings on campus. Check out the game and events schedule for a chance to see the Women's Basketball NCAA Division II National Champions, to catch a cross country or track meet, or see a golf or tennis match.
When you are ready to venture outside of Morrow into the greater Atlanta area, you might want to first figure out which attractions are must-sees for your group; there is so much to see in this area, you might run out of time to do it all!
Weekend warriors, athletes and adventurers of all kinds will be excited to learn that Clayton County International Park is only seven miles south of Morrow. This park offers a wide variety of activities with its many parks, outdoor areas and venues - including 17 tennis courts, "The Beach" (which is family-friendly and has four water slides, a Kiddie Pool, water trampoline, indoor playground and pavilions and picnic tables with grills), a Muscle Beach fitness center, and a VIP area with facility rentals for special occasions.
The world-famous city of Atlanta is one of our most popular destinations for Georgia vacation rentals, and since it's only 13 miles north, Morrow is an easy home base to explore its attractions or attend a conference.
The Georgia Aquarium is one of the best aquariums in the country with its focus not only on entertainment, but also on education, offering many different kinds of programs and events on an ongoing basis. The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site features self-guided tours to learn about the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., as well as a ranger-led tour of his childhood home.
Other notable attractions include the High Museum of Art, the international headquarters of Coca Cola and the World of Coke, Turner Field (home of the Atlanta Braves), and the lush grounds of Piedmont Park.
