What part of town is the Atlanta airport located?
If job will require monthly air travel, would you consider the commute to the airport into areas to look?

If being near the airport is preferred (it's on the SW side of the metro), then I definitely think Newnan would be perfect for your family. It's a good 15-20 mimute all highway from there to Hartsfield-Jackson via. I-85.

The traffic on that part of I-85 isn't nearly as bad as in other parts of Metro Atlanta either. I'm in Newnan myself and when I go in/out of Atlanta, I never run to traffic backups unless there's an accident. I'm also a transplant from the midwest and it's definitely much hotter down here IMO with the higher sun angle (don't miss the snow though).

Peachtree City is a great choice too, but the housing is more expensive there (it'll be very hard to find anythimg in your price range there). That said, you should have no problem getting a new construction home in Newnan with a ton of sq. ft., if that's what you want (new subdivisions are going up everywhere).

Large Asian population in Duluth. Also look at Johns Creek. Both north. Milton is very nice too. Gwinnett county for Duluth. Exemplary, best school district in the entire state.

Most backyard pools are too small for any serious lap swims. I would go to the neighborhood pool at 8 AM on weekends to lap swim. Also, there is a 10 minute "lifeguard break" each hour when the kids have to get out and the adults can enjoy some peace and quiet. In subdivisions with no lifeguard, and thus no breaks, I agree it is not much fun for adults when the pool is full of energetic kids.
