I absolutely love living in Sansy Springs, Georgia! I have been here for a little over ten years, and this city has afforded me many opportunities that I otherwise wouldn't have had in the small town that I am from. Sandy Springs has everything a person could need or want in close proximity. I would highly recommend Sandy Springs living to anyone that would be interested. I especially love the sense of community in Sandy Springs. Not to mention the awesome police department that keeps their citizens safe. All in all, there's nothing I can say negatively about Sandy Springs!
Review Sandy Springs
I enjoy the city of Sandy Springs, it is a very clean and welcoming city. There is plenty to do and it is definitely per friendly as well. I would like to see some running trails, but that is me reaching for something to improve on!
Sandy Springs is a friendly town where you feel safe driving around with your family members in your back seat. You don't have to drive a long distance to get to your favorite stores because there is every store you can think of within your zip code. There is a famous area called "pill-hill" where 3 large hospitals are congregated with Northside Hospital, St. Joseph's and All Children's Hospital where it's heavily congested during morning and afternoon, not to mention during lunch time and 'shift change'. Just avoid that area if you can, it's nice to live in Sandy Springs because this town is full of family fun and nice parks, constantly building new houses/townhomes keeping up real estate market hot.
