The southern Clayton County schools are some of the better ones in the county, as well.

The housing here is nicely priced...not too high, but not too low, either...which makes a difference if you ever want to sell your home.

Despite all of the feedback you're getting, you really need to come and see for yourself, maybe rent a home and see how you like it down here.
the bolded sentence above I think is the best advice anyone can give when talking about relocation & in particular (certain parts of) Clayton County. I live in Hampton (far south) & have had no problems nor worries, never been a victim of crime. But when you hear anything in the media about Clayton, they make it seem as if the entire county is a bust and that's just not true. Many people who make negative comments have never lived here and are simply regurgitating what they see on TV news reports & hear from others.

Do you work, conventional hours, either in or around the area? Are you able to avoid Highways 54 and 74 completely?

Where are you seeing 'little traffic'?

I have Been in Peachtree City since 2000 and totally love it !! It has been a fun place to live for both our kids and ourselves. We love getting out and walking the golf cart paths, using the great recreational facilaties, and fishing in the lakes.
As far as traffic goes commuting to the down town Atlanta area it is a piece of cake compared to what motorist on the northside of Atlanta have to deal with.
The schools that we have delt with here have been top notch. My children have had nothing but first rate teaching since they have been enrolled. ( I have one with special needs and his program has been outstanding.)
We have really enjoyed living here and I do not look forward to the day we have to move away.

I think that it's awesome you are able to use this website to help investigate communities before you move.
I will keep that in mind if I ever decide to move.
If you really need a more affordable area but don't want to live in a busy quasi-urban suburb and prefer to be nearer to rural areas, I strongly suggest the community near County Line Road and Northbridge Road in SouthEast Fayetteville. There's a good elementary school, Rivers Edge Elementary, as well, which has won national awards and carries an awesome teacher-led after school program. Many of the teachers and administrators at Rivers Edge really seem to be personally vested in the community, as well.

After being pretty much focused on Douglas or perhaps Paulding previously my wife would now like to also focus on these 2 areas. Primarily because most of the homes in Douglas seem to offer very little in way or property. All house, no backyard to speak of. She has friends that live in Fayetteville in a sizable house on over an acre of property. And I must say that every time I go to their house(including yesterday) I'm struck by how peaceful the area seems.

Of course, anything as far as Sharpsburg or Newnan or Peachtree City fulfills, but I was only talking about the main metro area, which these areas (even Peachtree City) don't really fall into, there's a noticeable gap in the sprawl between south metro Atlanta and Peachtree City. Whereas on the north side there is absolutely no gap at all from Downtown Atlanta all the way up to Milton/South Forsyth/Acworth/South Cherokee.
I have to disagree with you about there being a gap in development down to Newnan, Peachtree City, and Sharpsburg. Only by way of I-85 is there a gap between Fairburn and Newnan. However, if you come via Riverdale, it is continuous down to Fayetteville, over to Peachtree City and Newnan. Furthermore, even if you come from Fairburn heading toward Peachtree City, the gap is almost gone. Development from Fairburn to Tyrone and on down to Peachtree City is filling in nicely. Development is also continuous along I-75 all the way down to the southside of McDonough in Henry County.

I am planning to move to PTC, we just got back from a visit there and it was a short trip so I am by no means an expert but I can tell you that I fell in love with it! It was more about what I didn't see than what I did.. No traffic jams, no overcrowed schools, No car dealerships, No gang members hanging out around town (like where I live in Jax FL) We were out an about at 5:00-6:00p.m. and the traffic was light to say the least. It is full of natual beauty, and I find it to be very affordable. Coming from North Florida the prices seem like they are giving the stuff away, however we are still planning to rent for the first year until we get more established in the area. Best of luck!!
