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!

Smyrna is a great, family friendly place for any one to live and visit. I have lived in Smyrna all of my life and I am very familiar with all of my surroundings. The community center in Smyrna is a great place for taking children to the park, community library, recreational center, and even convenient , reasonable priced restaurants in that area as well. Smyrna sometimes has concerts known as the Jonquil festivals for all friends, family, children whoever and they also include food stations, games inflatables for children, art craft shops, puppet shows, live music and more. Smyrna is a great atmosphere to be in!
The city is continually growing. Lots of new homes being built, along with new shops and restaurants. There is so much to do here, that dont have to go downtown! Also great access to bike/running trails.
The road construction is slow going, and that's why I didnt give 5 stars. But am sure once all complete it will really make a difference.
