Atlanta is so much more than a sprawling urban center and massive Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.
Say you want to live in one of the many suburbs in the area. You could go up to Cobb County, where the Atlanta Braves are building their new stadium. You could head to Johns Creek or Alpharetta, which are just a short ride up Georgia 400 — Georgia’s Hospitality Highway — from Atlanta.
If you’d like to be able to get away from all of that for a quiet, more rural lifestyle, you can do that as well. Find your best fit in Atlanta. You can live in a neighborhood — the city, the suburbs, the country — that best suits you.
There are more than 200 distinct neighborhoods in the greater Atlanta area, ranging from the hipster haven in East Atlanta to the bourgeois neighborhoods of Buckhead. If you’re looking to relocate within in the city or to move to Atlanta for the first time, you’ll have plenty of options.
