I have really enjoyed Sandy Springs! It is just a short drive from Atlanta populated with anything from families, to up and coming young professionals. There is something for everyone here. My personal favorite thing to do is visit some of the community parks and nature areas. VERY well-kept and safe for everyone.

I've been living in Sandy Springs for ten years now and I absolutely love it! Everywhere I need to go is highly accessible and not far away at all. I go walking to the Riverside Park all the time and having the Sandy Springs library near is so convenient. You will never get bored here, as there is always something fun to do around the corner. If you've never visited this city, I highly recommend you do, and bring your family while you're at it!
Beautiful area that is super close to Atlanta! Has that neighborhood feel, but 2 minutes away from great shopping. The schools here are excellent too! There is traffic, but mostly during the normal traffic hours.
