Carrollton is a Georgian city about 45 minutes west of Atlanta. It has the classic feel of a small town, like Bruce Springsteen sings about in so many of his songs, but it also has a strong sense of community. The GreenBelt, a walkable/bikeable loop that goes through various parts of Carrollton's natural forests, is probably the best thing the city has ever done--it's always in use. The citizens here focus on the arts and athletics alike--high school football games are electric, and the arts programs, both through the city and some schools, are respectable and inclusive. Carrollton is a great place for families!

It's a college town partially occupied by UWG graduates and their children. This town is not receptive to progressive ideas, for the most part. The city loves trump and confederate flags, church (there's like over 100), and high school football maybe too much. I grew up in the area, however mostly outside of the city limits, and graduated from Carrollton High School. The best decision I ever made was moving to Atlanta for college!
I mainly stayed in an apartment that is predominantly a home for students, but young professionals live there too. The pool was a professional-looking pool and the staff was kind. My experience in Carrollton is based on this and the Carrollton square.
