    I love it here! It is a wonderful city that continues to improve and I'm so happy to call this metropolitan my home! But the beauty of this city is that it expands 360 degrees outside of its boundaries and there are neighborhoods that fit every lifestyle. Cozy historic walking neighborhood with beautiful street art, lofts in historic cotton mills and master-planned communities complete with PGA golf courses. Metro Atlanta is pleasantly diverse!
    Review Atlanta
    I have lived in Atlanta for 24 years. It has culture, arts, music and a thriving night life. There is something here for everyone. I specifically enjoy the parks, museums, and amazing restaurants. The High Museum, Georgia Aquarium and Piedmont Park should be on your to do list. The people here are warm, friendly and diverse. Even though Atlanta has grown immensely over time, it still maintains its southern charm and hospitality. Atlanta is a great city to live or visit!
    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!
