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!

This is a safe, family-friendly neighborhood. The commute by car to the downtown area can be hectic sometimes depending on the traffic. However, 2 MARTA stations are nearby in this area, so commuters can avoid a bad traffic. Because Sandy Springs is a residential area, not many places for nightlife is available. Good restaurants are located in Dunwoody, which is right next to Sandy Springs though.
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!
