Newnan has been where I grew up. I started first grade and am going to graduate high school here. It has lots of good schools, restaurants, and shopping. It is close enough to Atlanta without being to far away. It is my home town and I wouldn't have wanted to grow up in any other town!

Relocating from the bustling city of Chicago to the suburb of Newnan has been one of the best decisions I've made. It's a tree lined, quiet suburb far enough away from the noise of Atlanta for me to have a relaxed oasis to study. But also close enough for me to have the option of exploring the amazing nightlife! A great balance!
For context, I am a single, childless white collar professional in my late 20s. I'm originally from Detroit and am now relocating to Addison, TX.

Pros:

*Everything is relatively new, since most of the homes / commercial establishments were built in the last 10-20 years.

*Healthcare quality is better than average, thanks to the Cancer Treatment Center of America.

*Newnan has every "run of the mill" store and restaurant you can think of.

*Vibrant/walkable historic town square.

*Increasing specialty recreation (dog park, LINC, etc.)

Cons:

*The stores / restaurants suffer from poor staffing and limited selection.

*Leaders don't seem to have a long-term vision for the city other than maintaining a "small town feel," despite rubber stamping a ridiculous amount of apartments.

*White collar / corporate jobs are limited to non-existent.

*Rents are pretty high and traffic is getting progressively worse.

*Upscale / specialty stores and restaurants are limited to non-existent.
