Excellent area! Smyrna offers all the benefits of living in a suburb without the stuck-in-a-suburban-neighborhood feel. With fast access to two major highways, multiple nightlife options (Smyrna downtown areas and the Battery) and neighborhoods with diverse homes, Smyrna can seem like you're living in the city. However, Smyrna's community gives it more of a small town vibe.
Smyrna celebrates almost any and every holiday with a downtown festival and hosts Food Truck Tuesdays during the summer. For all of these events you can see hundreds of families and singles alike walking up down Atlanta and Spring Rd to join in on the festivities. (Bonus points for Smyrna's birthday firework show :) )
Finally, homes are unique, affordable, and have large lots. There are more parks than i can count and instead of tiny bushes planted as a barrier from your too-close-neighbor, there are plenty of beautiful grown trees that offer privacy!

Great access to Midtown for Theaters, Symphony, Piedmont Park, restaurants. Direct shot to ATL Airport on 285 or 75. Braves new stadium and The Battery are a nice addition. Costco in Cumberland Mall.....best gas prices!
Been here since 2002....own my condo......property values jumped since stadium opened.
Glad I’m here.
Smyrna is a suburban city about 25 minutes away from Atlanta. Smyrna provides everything one could need in their life! Smyrna is full of diversity, friendly faces, local businesses, and so much more. Smyrna is also close to many tourist attractions such as Suntrust Park, Six Flags Over Georgia and is 25 minutes away from downtown Atlanta. I would highly encourage others to move to Smyrna to settle down, live alone, or even start a family.
