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!
Review Smyrna
When I first moved to Smyrna, I did not like the area because of the traffic and the distance from shopping centers and amenities. With all of the construction happening around the new stadium, I have been encouraged to see more businesses and restaurants popping up! This is going to be great for the city and I am excited to see how traffic will improve when construction is finished. It is a difficult area, being at the intersection of 75 and 285, but I think the city is doing what it can to make it a great place to live.
Smyrna is close enough to the City of Atlanta yet far enough to be quaint; avoiding the hustle and bustle of the city yet offering a variety of restaurant, shopping, and recreational options. Smyrna is fitting for any family size and is an all-around great place to live!
