North and South is not different enough in weather or temps.


However, I believe North Atlanta falls in planting zone 7A and South Atlanta in planting zone 7B so if you are avid gardener it might make a difference

If you don't mind being a little closer to the city you should check out Tucker. Look in the area around Henderson and Evans Road.

Tons to choose from, fastest growing county in the state, top ten nationally.

- $350k - $400k range.

Tons to choose from in that range.

- Safe neighborhood.

Safe county.

- Would love a pool.

Most every subdivision development has one.

South Forsyth, #17 in the state, Lambert # 18 in the state, West Forsyth #22 in the state, Forsyth Central # 42 in the state out of 500+ high schools

- 1 to 1.5 hour commute to downtown Atlanta (will need to drive in to office once a week).

On a bad day, 1 hour down SR400.

If it matters, inter-racial family. Asian-Mexican-Caucasian mix.

South, Southeast Forsyth has a large Indian/Asian demographic.

Forsyth Coumty, $350-400 will go a bit further than a lot of places. Borders northern Fulton County. Top 5 school system in GA. Much lower taxes than neighboring Fulton and Gwinnett. Lake Lanier/Chattahoochee River access. 20 minutes from the mountains/outlets. Top tier parks and recreation, Big Creek Greenway, Sawnee Mountain.

North side of atlanta isnt particularly humid. People who say it is haven't lived in a place with real humity.

It's also not nearly as hot as people make it out to be. And I say that as a person who hates the heat.

But yes 1.5 hours north is defiantly cooler than 1.5 hours south by a few degrees for sure.

Sure, maybe it's not as hot/humid as Houston and Miami, but I think one would be very misleading to suggest summers in Metro Atlanta as a whole aren't pretty hot / humid (especially compared to about 80% of the rest of the country).

Seriously? 80%? That's not backed up by facts at all. Atlanta isn't know for extremely hot temps at all and our humidity is manageable at worse.

You can easily back that number up with facts.

Just look at dew points. That's the most meaningful number when it comes to mugginess. Atlanta is clearly in the top 20% of the country.

The OP, moving from Honolulu, may not notice. I think Atlanta's dew point is probably worse than Honolulu's, but Hawaii has a much bigger outdoor culture and many homes lack air conditioning. So I think the OP will probably not notice the heat and humidity in ATL that much, but Honolulu is one of the few cities I'd say that for.

Yes, seriously.

Outside the Desert SW (including TX / OK) and along the gulf coast (basically south of the fall line), there are very few other places in the lower 48 that *averages* Summer highs well into the upper 80s / near 90*F along with dewpoints averaging in the mid/upper 60s.

It would be hard to find a house that size in Peachtree City for under 500K. You could find that in Newnan, Sharpsburg or Senoia in Coweta County, or in the Ola or Union Grove high school districts in Henry County.


I recommend looking in Gwinnett. Jeff mentioned the Parkview and Brookwood districts which are great recommendations. You could also look in the North Gwinnett or Mill Creek districts. Gwinnett has good schools and great diversity. You could consider looking at Cherokee (Woodstock/Canton) or Forsyth County (Cumming/Suwanee) too.

Thank you for noticing, however I am asking for someone moving from the Midwest.
