    Atlanta Reviews

    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
    Atlanta is great place to live! It is culturally diverse with a wide variety of restaurants, markets, shops, museums, and outdoor activities. Sports fans can avail themselves to high school, college, and professional sporting events. Employment and entrepreneurial opportunities are varied and continually increasing. Families have their choice of public, private, or charter schools. There are numerous vocational/trade schools , community colleges, and universities for those looking to further their education.
    I have lived in Atlanta for 21 years. This city used to resemble a town, but, with the increase in major corporations calling this city home, the level of activities available are endless! Whether dining, going to the movies, theater, music venues, or attending museums, Atlanta never ceases to offer opportunities for getting out and discovering anything that appeals to all. Shopping is as diverse as the landscape, and the hotels are plentiful. It is truly a wonderful place to visit or call home.
