Known as the City of Gold, Villa Rica is where art, culture and history are at the heart and soul of the community.

Retail therapy is just what the doctor ordered in historic downtown. Choose from a variety of specialty shops, antique stores and signature restaurants.
While you’re downtown visit Wick’s Tavern, the oldest commercial structure in West Georgia.
Villa Rica is home of the first Gold Rush in Georgia and that history is captured daily at the Pine Mountain Gold Museum where you can walk the trails where miners walked, pan for gold and gems, and enjoy the museum and documentary film.
