I love Atlanta. I love everything about it. From the diversity of people, to the Colleges, to the nightlife. What I would like to change about Atlanta is, traffic jams. The traffic jams here in Atlanta are BEYOND crazy! That's one of the most horrific things about Atlanta. I would also like to see growth with more Entertainment opportunities in the City. Many people move here daily, and more for Entertainment. As the population increases, I'd like to see Entertainment opportunity increase.

Atlanta has a very diverse music scene, provided with Southern hospitality and sports teams! There are music festivals, music fests, food truck parks, breweries galore...Atlanta is growing to fit its inhabitants. What else is there to say? Atlanta is a solid city to live in. With mostly solid weather year round, I'm ok with it. Enough food and new restaurants to keep the foodie in my satisfied, as well as stimulating the senses with things to do.
I really like living here. The city is very beautiful with its tall buildings and clean streets. There are many opportunities in this city. People with a passion for music or art can really make it here. However, t is expensive to live here. It is kind of dangerous here. You will always hear police sirens and receive campus broadcasts if something goes wrong (for students). The sunset is very beautiful though, and there are many tourist sites to visit and have fun!
