What do you want to know? Both areas are turning into typical suburbs. Good schools, relatively low crime rate, lots of shopping, very conservative.

Woodstock: Low taxes, good schools, shopping, Lake Allatoona, lots of house for the money, views of the mountains, yet still close to Atlanta (45minutes).

I love it here!

Woodstock has some beautiful and picturesque areas, and a low cost of living. However, it is "small town" America and no where near Atlanta, so I hope that is what you are looking for.

Please- have you ever even been to Woodstock or made the morning commute? You could leave as late as 6:30 and be in downtown Atlanta in 45 minutes on most days. Even 7:00 is doable most days, provided you don't live too far from the interstate. I've driven in at 8am, and even then it's typically less than an hour most days.

It is a very nice area and they even are trying to make a nice little town center area for Woodstock's downtown itself.

The area is exurban and rapidly sub-urbanizing. The drive downtown (without rush hour traffic) of 45 minutes is about right. I wouldn't reccomend moving there if you ever might commute downtown, but if you work in Cobb, Marietta, Kennesaw, or Woodstock it is great. A few people might live there and commute down 92 to the Northpoint/Alpharetta/Roswell area or down 75 to Cumberland.

You can expect good schools, cheap cost of living, and a good family lifestyle. However, you will also have to be willing to put up with growing pains of living in a growing area. Small 2 lane roads will have increasing traffic and it will take the county time to play catch-up. The same goes for school overcrowding.
