I am a 27 yr old female who left GA a couple years back to pursue business opportunities. I'm now looking at moving back to be near family...but not too near, if you get what I mean.

My family is located in the more rural southern suburb, McDonough. I've previously had an apartment near Lawrenceville and did like that area, but it's quite a drive. Peachtree City has been on my radar before, but I'm not sure it's quite the right vibe for me.

Details, as requested by the sticky:

--Currently unemployed, planning bakery start up business, looking to work in local food establishments until then. Boyfriend can work from home, not worried about it.

--No need for proximity to airport.

--I have lived the commuting nightmare that is 75/85N and the Perimeter, so please spare me that this time. I love lots of back road possibilities.

--Would like to stay within 1 hour drive of Henry County.

--Renting only for now.

--Price range, (been in Cali where a studio is $700+, so..) anywhere below $1500 is preferable.

--No kids, don't care about schools.

--Boyfriend moving with me, need apartment or house..don't take up much room so even a studio apt works for us. Can you tell we're coming from Cali? haha

--Don't care about nightlife, but prefer not to settle down in elderly community. Haha.

--Prefer rural living but no more than 10-15 minute drive into nearest city/town.

--Love the woods. Love to swim. Love the outdoors. Love the mountains.

--Public transit would be nice, but not required.

--I like culturally diverse areas but prefer the highest percentage be caucasian so I don't stick out too much.

--I love international markets.

--If you wanted to put me in a box, it would say 'half-hippie' on it.

If this post bored you, my apologies. I was trying to be as complicated as possible so as not to waste anyone's time.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions!

EDIT:We are both big time foodies and would be overjoyed if there was a huge foodie community nearby as well....

Athens has your name all over it. Tons of mom and pop stores and plenty of hipsters from UGA to come to your bakery. Direct access to outdoors. No traffic. Nightlife is there, but you don't have to take part. Very affordable housing.

Dunno about international markets. All the international markets seem to be in METRO area.

Thanks for the replies. I've thought about Athens but was afraid it might be too much of a college crowd that would get on my nerves..I'll check it out. Buford Hwy has the awesome international market. It is a bit of a haul for me though....hm..
