    Living in a metro area does not have to be a daunting experience. Here in Atlanta, the MARTA train and buses can get you from point A to point B. I have utilized the train to make it to my hospital workplace and also to my university. If you move here, I highly recommend trying out the MARTA train! It is also fun to ride! This is one of the things my dad looks forward to riding when he visits me from out of town.

    There are so many restaurants, schools, hospitals, medical offices, and businesses in Atlanta that there is never a struggle with finding your next job here. The opportunities are endless and they are always waiting for you!

    Visit Atlanta today and see what this city has to offer.
    Review Atlanta
    Although it has its quirks, Atlanta is an overall great place to live! You have a wide range of options on where to live, whether that be in the city in a nice apartment with stunning views or in a little quieter setting in the suburban parts where there are beautiful houses with great prices! If you choose to live in the city, everything is within walking distance. There are so many forms of entertainment to occupy any free time you may have. Atlanta is one of the largest hip hop central in the world! There is always something going on in Atlanta. That may sound like a great thing, but it does have its disadvantages. Atlanta traffic is almost an everyday thing. There may be construction in progress on I-285, or it maybe a concert or an event going on and it may have traffic backed up on the interstate. Instead of dealing with the interstate traffic, there are plenty of back roads you can take to get around the interstates
    When I first was told the school I wanted to attend was in Georgia, I though absolutely no way. I am from Boston, and I wasn't about to move anywhere unless it compared. Then I came to visit, and I immediately fell in love. This city has the most vibrant culture I have ever been exposed to. It extremely art based and health oriented. There is any area of the city for every personality, and events for every hobby, interest, and idea. I couldn't imagine living in a better city, and after living in Atlanta, I won't be returning to Boston! Now, Boston doesn't compare to Atlanta!
