Just curious do you have back routes to downtown Atlanta? If not, what time do you leave...575 always looks really bad!!

I think we are going to chose Woodstock though because it is more self-contained and seems very family friendly. We are disappointed that we did not make it to Peachtree City or Fayetteville as we wanted to check out those areas too.

My question is about Town Lakes in Woodstock and other developments. Town Lakes seems to be its own community in many ways. Are there other developments equal to that in Woodstock? For those who live there, do you recommend one over the other?

Thanks.

I agree, we moved to Canton in Jan from CA (OC to be exact) and the traffic here is nothing like CA. The traffic moves here...rather than complete gridlock. Bridgemill is another large development in the Woodstock/Towne Lake/Canton area. I live in Crestmont off of Sixes Road (1 exit north of Towne Lake. There is a lot going on in the area in general...lots of new development.

Like someone else mentioned, how do you get downtown? 1 hour in rush hour is pretty impressive. My manager had to leave at 6am to get into our Buckhead office from TL in under an hour. I suppose that time's accurate in the summer, but once the kids start school again (I think they already did), then it will start backing up again!

I personally hate Woodstock, I dont think it could be anymore conservative and vanilla if it tried...that said, I used to live near Sixes Road and that's going to be the next Towne Lake...one exit up 575, they are redoing everything down that road toward Bridge Mill.

I live in TL (been there 12 years) and work in downtown Atlanta. I take a CCT express bus downtown. It's great, I save a lot of money (parking, gas, wear and tear) and I get to take a nap. I go to the park n ride near the Town Center mall and in the morning it take about a half hour to get dropped off in front of my building. I drove downtown for years, but now I love the express bus.
