Austell Reviews

I has affordable apartments but not in the best neighborhoods. It's pretty quiet for the most part and they have spread out some of the most traffic roads. It is located right next to 285 and 20 which is convenient but again not in the best neighborhoods. The public schools are Title 10 but still not that great but more so checking the boxes. However, there are private church schools that are amazing with kids!
Review Austell
I have had a great experience living in the city of Austell GA. I love the benefits that the suburbs allow versus living in the city. The driving distance to Atlanta is no more than 15 minutes. I enjoy the opportunity to experience the restaurants, museums and shopping. What I enjoy must about Austell is the small town feel of knowing your neighbors as well as being in a clean, safe environment. The housing market is attractive which allows for you to have a great investment that will benefit both you and your children in the future.
I loved living in Austell. It was a very friendly environment. The only thing I would change about Austell would be more things to do. It's kind of boring and really isn't many fun things for my age group and below. The community is wonderful and filled with different eateries and variety of shopping outlets which I absolutely LOVE!
