Neighborhood that I live in is quiet, neighbors are nice, and surrounding area is close to work. Easy access to both major highways to lead into Atlanta and far enough away so that you don't hear vehicles traveling constantly.
Review Auburn
Auburn is a small town outside of Atlanta. The people are nice, helpful, and very respectful. Auburn cares about the citizens and works to keep the area clean and safe. The area is growing but not over populated.
I like that it is a college town and safety is the number one goal. All of the area restaurants treat you with concern and make sure you get what you ordered. I have not been out to any of the night spots, but the students I have talked to enjoy going out in the city. Most of the residents work or go to school in the university.
