My first thought moving to the Atlanta was that I wanted to live North of Atlanta (based upon my own research)...and man was I wrong...and man I am glad that I chose Fayetteville over my first choice Marietta. Small city/town family oriented feel. Great schools, beautiful homes, and close to the airport. The drive to get downtown is actually not as far as initially thought, but I appreciate living a little distance from 85/75. There's some new development coming to the area in Pinewood Forest and a new downtown area. I can see some development happening around me but as long as they keep the Marta and apartments out of this area...life would be great.

It's great. I've lived in Fayetteville for five years now, and I absolutely love it! The roads are clean and easy accessible to many shopping centers in the area.
My experience in Fayette County has been wonderful. The town is small and quiet. Its a great town to raise you children in! Although it's small, they have plenty to do! There are shops and plenty of restaurants to eat at. The school system is also excellent.
