Come on. The comment on Buckhead. Many ppl who live in Buckhead are from the big cities up north and those cities are ALL liberal leaning.
Lots of liberals in Buckhead. Many ppl just live in Buckhead to be close to shopping, restaurants, parks, schools, etc but we are liberal and we are in numbers.

If you opt for OTP suburbs, I would try to stay as close to the downtown of the town as possible. Downtown Marietta, Roswell and Duluth are all pretty tolerable. But unincorporated areas surrounding those cities are very conservative. And boring.

I'm living in Sandy Springs for now... temporarily anyway. Not super liberal, but definitely one of the least conservative of the ATL suburbs, not counting Decatur of course. Relatively speaking, of course. Then you've also got Brookhaven and the North Druid Hills area, which aren't too bad.

If you do opt for the city, stay away from Buckhead. Stick with Midtown/liberal east side neighborhoods/certain parts of the Westside.

Decatur is the closest thing to what you're looking for, and also has the best schools, but it's really expensive.

We'd love to move to a family friendly suburb with great schools, housing available at around 300K, and people we can relate to: socially minded, environmentally intelligent, and engaged with the community. Greenspace would be excellent too. We're hinging somewhere around Roswell or Duluth. I would love your input.

Although the info is slightly dated in the previous comments. I think you should start your search in the following zip codes:

30317
30030
30306
30307
30308
30312
30033

I would also consider the following. The only caveat is that you may prefer the charter schools to the traditional schools in these areas.

30315
30310
30313
30314

Good luck

Come on over to Woodstock. Great schools, shopping options galore, tons of parks and outdoor green space, about a half hour drive to the city, and still somewhat affordable (compared to N. Fulton). Although a minority, you'll find tons of like-minded people around here as well.

I don't know that I'd call Woodstock liberal though?

The downtown is definitely gentrifying though. Give it 10 years.

Oh its not, which is why I emphasized in my post that although a minority, there are tons of liberals in the area. Woodstock is growing and adding more transplants year after year. Roughly 40K people voted for Biden (compared to 100K for Trump) in Cherokee County (I'm assuming most of those votes came from Woodstock and the general surrounding area). Keep in mind Cobb County went blue during the last 2 presidential elections. Woodstock is basically on the Cobb/Cherokee line. Its just a matter of time...
