At the top of the page there is a pull down menu--select 'Search' and enter appropriate key words--ie--Roswell, GA or Alpharetta, etc

Here is a similar thread---
ATL, here I come, but where?

FYI on an area of Roswell, near Alpharetta--you can use the Zoom features to explore N, S, E and W of this location and that will give you some idea of the parameters of this area--quite large--lots of driving...and lots of people...
Hembree Springs Elementary area>>>


at 'Great Schools.com' Hembree received a '9' out of 10>>>

This school seems to be in the Mansell Rd, Houze Rd, 400--Alpharetta area. A heavily traveled and populated area.
Alpharetta FYI>>>

*Metro Atlanta*
--Population estimated at 5,000,000--10+ counties/municipalities included
--North Atlanta is experiencing tremendous growth--(Fulton County/Cobb County)Alpharetta,Johns Creek, Roswell, Sandy Springs, Marietta and Duluth/Lawrenceville/Cumming/Gwinnett & Forsyth County
--Employment opportunities for legal/administrative
--Horrendous traffic--commutes from North Atlanta to Perimeter/downtown areas average 1-2 hours

http://www.ajc.com/news/content/metro/stories/2007/01/29/0130metgridlock.html (broken link)
--Best schools--Cobb County and Fulton County--Gwinnett School System good to excellent
--Temperate climate--mild winters--heat and humidity June -August
--Best to start with location of job and then research the traffic patterns to/from the location in which you wish to live
--Atlanta is not inexpensive--housing in Gwinnett/Forsyth--Duluth/Lawrenceville/Cumming is somewhat less expensive than Sandy Springs/Roswell/Alpharetta---there are exclusive country clubs in North Atlanta with multimillion $ homes and there are more moderate areas
