Having lived in Morrow going on three years, I can quickly attest to two things. It's affordability and plentiful public transportation that thins as you go south into Union City. Shopping is plentiful with Southlake Mall around the corner. The long stretch of Tara Blvd provides plenty options too. However, if you get that urge for the chain restaurant burger, you'll have to travel a bit south to Stockbridge or Mcdonough to get your choice of restaurants to sedate your pallete. However there is diversity here in Morrow! Plenty small food shops and groceries to choose from the local Asian and African cultures if you're in the mood for variety. If you have children, there are numerous schools and play areas around. The local Community Room on Jonesboro Rd has plenty happenings flash on their digital sign as you drive by, advertising upcoming happenings to become more involved in your community.

I lived in Morrow, Ga for two years and I have to say that it was one of the best places I lived so far! My neighbors were friendly and alert. They were really the type you could go to if you needed to "borrow" some sugar. I felt really safe and happy when I lived on Twilight Trail—which is right over the train tracks in from Walmart. I only moved because I didn't like the actual house anymore. If I could have replaced the house with another house, I'd still be on Twilight Trail! Hopefully I can go back in a few years.
Morrow is a great suburb for anyone who likes to branch out beyond their typical nests at home. For those who need to commute in a busy city but are a bit too frightened of Atlanta's commute, Morrow is a great choice. There is a lot to offer and to do to give back to the community. For those seeking to expand their knowledge, Clayton State University is a great university for students to explore their niches in occupation. Apartments and homes in Morrow are of good quality, so one can easily settle down in a good neighborhood. A lot of job opportunities and diversity are essentials to Morrow, so this is a good first stop for others to make their living.
