Cleveland GA 55 Plus Retirement Homes

Town Profile: Cleveland, GA

Cleveland is located in the Northeast Georgia Mountain in White County GA and sometimes referred to as "The Gateway to the Mountains". A great place to find North Georgia retirement homes.

Town Report: I believe Cleveland is an upcoming place to live because it is close to the Atlanta area, is reasonably priced and relatively un-discovered.
