The City of Villa Rica is a safe, thriving, diverse community that seeks to enhance the quality of life and preserve its historic character, while promoting well planned growth. Villa Rica is proud of its distinction as a nationally accredited Main Street Program and invites visitors to enjoy all the city has to offer.

Only 35 minutes from Atlanta, Villa Rica is an amazing place, rich in history as gold was first discovered here in 1826. You will see authentic early 1900’s architecture, local shops, and boutiques, while enjoying entertainment at The MILL Amphitheater.

Stop to appreciate the architecture of Wick’s Tavern, West Georgia’s oldest commercial structure. Choose from a variety of shops and restaurants filled with treasures and tastes you can only find here. Take a tour of Pine Mountain Gold Museum at Stockmar Park, site of the first Gold Strike in the United States, pan for gold and gems and take a train ride on Pine Mountain’s scenic railroad!
