A lot of things are dope but as I understand it dope is not dope.

Theres a lot of similarities and major differences. The terrain in Atlanta is hilly from the suburbs into the city, you will notice a lot more people walking in Midtown Atlanta Vs Phoenix at any given time day or night. Its a lot more openly friendlier than Phoenix, but still some passive aggressive behavior when people drive the roads here, and traffic flow is horridly slow at times...nothing like Phoenix and being on a GRID!!

The weather is much more to my liking so far, the winter is chilly to cold some days, but the sun is warm as like AZ, but not as intense in the Summer. I have yet to experience the humidity in the depths of July, but overall the change in climate hasn't been too dramatic.

I'm a young black male and Phoenix is lacking is many areas for my age group, I have to give it to Atlanta here. The various groups rather it be younger (18-23) (24-33) and the adult crowd (38-45) 50+ can all have fun together out here. It's not a popularity contest because the vast number of people out here make it new and interesting every weekend you party or entertain in the city. Phoenix is picking up its pace, but it doesn't have the scene in music, history, or global exposure that ATL has. Its been a great change for me
