I absolutely love living in the city of Douglasville. Upon moving here two years ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find all the great shopping and restaurants in close proximity! I love to shop and dine so to know that I can travel to the mall within ten minutes of leaving my home, is absolutely favorable.
Douglasville also upholds a standard of great safety. There are plenty of police and sheriffs patrolling the streets at all times of the day & night. This is particularly comforting as I am a mother of two boys and safety is my top priority!
My only concern is the school system. There are some improvements that are quite necessary, such as the IRR program for High-Functioning Autistic children. The supportive services are seriously in need of educators that are accustomed to children with learning disabilities and developmental issues.

I like that everyone here is friendly. The people care about you, and always wanna talk. The family-run restaurants, such as the $1 Chinese Scoop restaurant on Fairburn Road, is my favorite! Downtown Douglasville is very scenic, with beautiful brownstones, and a gorgeous fountain. Please come check it out!
What I loved about douglasville is how safe and affordable it is to stay out here! Also how I wasn’t too far from the city, only a 25-30 minute drive. They have great schools and opportunities out in douglasville and such a loving community.
