Clayton County   Minimize

The small suburban feel of this Atlanta neighbor radiates Southern charm, despite its proximity to such a major city. A replica of “Gone with the Wind’s” famous Tara plantation in Jonesboro, along with The Road to Tara Museum, Stately Oaks Plantation and the Landmarks Through History Tour-, are reasons enough for any history lover to adore Jonesboro, the county seat of Clayton.

Enjoy concerts at Clayton State University’s Spivey Hall or at the Clayton County Performing Arts Center for an evening of escape. Recreational activities abound at the summer hotspot, “The Beach,” at Clayton County International Park. With waterslides, 17 tennis courts, a six-acre swimming lake with a geyser, picnic areas, an indoor playground and a gym, it’s the place to go in sweltering July and August. In the off-season, the park hosts “Movie Under the Stars” nights and community festivals.

Located half an hour south of Atlanta, the county has easy access to Interstates 75, 85, 285 and 675, along with rail service from Norfolk Southern and CSX, as well as Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
At the heart of a powerful transportation center, Clayton is the only county in the Atlanta area to be classified as a Foreign Trade Zone. With the second largest convention and exhibition facility in the state at the Georgia International Convention & Trade Center, which encompasses 329,000 square feet of space, and 25 industrial parks, 20 of which house 20 Fortune 500 companies, it’s no wonder that the 146-square-mile Clayton County has a population of more than 265,000 people.
