Cumming Local launched in November 2010 as an online resource dedicated to helping families find things to do, places to go & small businesses to support in Cumming GA & Forsyth County GA.  We focus on highlighting local businesses and it is our goal and desire to make it easier for residents and guests to eat local, shop local & play local –  in Cumming Georgia & Forsyth County Georgia.

Why Local?

Shopping local helps support our hometown.  It helps support our community and it makes a difference.

Why Cumming Local?

We’re not going to fill this website, your facebook or twitter stream with lots of things going on outside of Cumming, GA.  There are plenty of wonderful things to do, places to shop and restaurants to enjoy right here in Cumming.  Sure, we might mention something here and there outside of Cumming, but the focus of Cumming Local is Cumming, GA & Forsyth County!

Most small businesses do not have the marketing resources to compete with their larger-national competitors.  This means without word-of-mouth it is often times hard to find small businesses right in our own city.    Consider this site, word-of-mouth online!  And if you own a small business, consider this a great space to advertise.

Getting Started:

Whether you’ve lived in Forsyth County your entire life or you’ve just moved here and have no idea where to begin, we have something for everyone!  Our Calendar of Events is filled with great activities and things to do.  We keep it updated year round and allow the local community to submit their own events free of charge through the “POST YOUR EVENT” Feature found on the Calendar page.

Our popular Kids Eat Free page is filled with restaurants that your family can enjoy on a cheap budget!  Did you know your kids can actually eat free in Forsyth County every night of the week!

And don’t miss out on our in-real-life fun too!  We host regular Cumming Local Events (both Girl’s Night Out and Family Events) throughout the community and would love for you to join us!    These are a great way to try a local business and meet new friends too!
