Is East Cobb as conservative as Alpharetta and Johns Creek? How would you compare these areas culturally? Obviously, East Cobb is no Decatur, but is it more moderate than JC or Alpharetta. I feel like when I go to Johns Creek or Alpharetta I get knocked over by gated communities and evangelical Christianity. Is East Cobb like that? It seems to me that Roswell is more laid back and tolerant of liberal views, but I can't really get a good feel for where East Cobb stands. What is the culture like there? Obviously, these are generalizations and any individual can be an exception to the rule, but what is the general "vibe"?

I would totally put East Cobb, Roswell, Alpharetta, and Johns Creek in the same category.

Stereotyping based on geographical locations is ignorance in it's purest form.

As a resident of Johns Creek, i know first hand that this area is full of educated, diverse people from all walks of life (both culturally & religiously) and that is why we love living here. I know one " holy roller" family in my neighborhood, which feels isolated here, so they are selling their house to move to a more culturally conservative area in the northern USA. Check out the demographics of the local schools of Johns Creek/Alpharetta area vs. Dunwoody/ East Cobb, and will find some of the most diverse schools in the metro area combining all races and performing very well. After living in Sandy Springs for a few years, I was happy to move away from the more "exclusive" mentality of both Dunwoody and East Cobb.

Schooldigger is an excellent resource for school demographics.

Exactly. What an absurd original post. Guess we'll just have to come to terms with the fact that not every part of the metro area can live up to that bastion of high culture known as Decatur.

"I am reluctant to live around people who think differently than I do."

How enlightened.

Growing up in Roswell people always referred to East Cobb as being snobby. Roswell has been around for longer and has more "old money." What I mean by that is the families here tend to have been around and had money for longer. They flaunt it less and although they might lean right in some ways they typically aren't far right on the social views.
