Might as well say Grantville is also "well connected" to Metro Atlanta too.
Because it's not a regular suburban area it's exurban.

Anyways oblivious the MSA system is not perfect cause it does by whole counties. But as Blocks to base the commuting from and to that's only thing that would make sense.

And Atlanta having small counties is more accurate then other Metros. Clearly something it weird about Riverside, Phoenix metros areas. but as I states rural areas don't distort a Metro population because there barely add to it.

I don't disagree with most of your post, but I would say even calling Adairsville an exurb is a stretch.

Places like Newnan, Cartersville, Canton, Cumming, Covington, Villa Rica and Locust Grove more accurately fit the exurb description (basically, places that still have large pockets of rural areas, but also didn't see a ton of suburban development until the 2000s real estate bubble and now identify with Atlanta.

Granted, in Newnan, Canton and Cumming's case, they've been seeing quite a bit of infill development over the last decade and now feel more like bonafide suburbs.

Yeah..Cartersville is about as far as I can go with calling an area an exurb. And Adairsville is 15 miles past that. Cities which are about the same distance from downtown as Adairsville are Tallapoosa, Hogansville, Madison, Athens, northern Gainesville, and Talking Rock. Several of these are cities or towns most of us have never even heard of.
