Chattahoochee Hills (formerly Chattahoochee Hill Country) is a city in southern Fulton County, Georgia, United States. As of the 2010 census, it had a population of 2,378 living in an area of just over 32,000 acres. It is the incorporated part of a region called "Chattahoochee Hill Country," an area encompassing approximately 60,000 acres (240 km2) southwest of Atlanta, bordered on the northwest side by the Chattahoochee River. Unlike the rest of metro Atlanta, it is still relatively undeveloped, and most of its rural character remains unchanged. The majority of the wider area comprises the west-southwest part of southern Fulton, and smaller adjacent parts of southern Douglas, eastern Carroll, and northern Coweta counties.
The area that is now southwest Fulton was once Campbell County. Historically, much of the southwestern-most region of Fulton was considered to be a "town" called Rico, with other communities (including among others Goodes, Rivertown, County Line, and Pumpkintown) also within the new city's boundaries.
The idea of the area as "Chattahoochee Hills" is very recent, and grew out of attempts to incorporate all of Fulton County into cities following the 2005 incorporation of Sandy Springs, as well as more local efforts to take control of the local zoning in the multi-county Chattahoochee Hill County area.
During the 2006 session, the Georgia General Assembly passed a law allowing the Fulton section of the area to incorporate as a city (the only type of municipality allowed in Georgia), the purpose being the municipalization of that county, and to allow local residents to have local control of zoning. This has included concentrating development in three planned villages, though the nearby city of Palmetto took one of them for itself, leaving a gerrymander-looking arm of it sticking northwest into the heart of the new city.
On June 19, 2007, residents voted by an 83% to 17% margin to incorporate the 33,000-acre (130 km2) portion within Fulton as the city of Chattahoochee Hill Country in a local referendum. Later annexation could incorporate the portions remaining in other counties.
Chattahoochee Hill Country became a city on December 1, 2007, with the first elected officials taking office a few days later. On September 23, 2008, the city was renamed by an ordinance from Chattahoochee Hill Country to Chattahoochee Hills.

On March 20, 2013, TomorrowLand, a massive electronic music festival from Belgium, announced that the groups first festival to come to the US TomorrowWorld will take place in Chattahoochee Hills on September 27, 28, 29. The festival will feature camping in a interactive world, 7+ stages, and expected guests from oversea's by the tens of thousands. It has been speculated that this location was picked specifically because of Atlanta's airport being a major US traffic hub and International flight destination as well as the available open outdoor space and good weather in the months of September. The exact plot of land in the Hills that the festival plans to commence upon has not been disclosed yet. Tickets went on sale for the event on April 20th at 11am EST starting at $350 for a three day pass and sold out by 1:02pm, International tickets are scheduled to go on sale May 6th and sell out even faster. Currently the festival is quoting a attendance of over 150,000 people each of the three days. The "TomorrowLand After Movie 2012" on YouTube (Link not available through Wiki) gives an idea of what to expect for the festival in Georgia this September.
