Caporiea, Takeahike, Rakensack RoslynHolcomb,

Thank you for the information on the hiking trails. I realize I will not be alone. I promise to stay on the trails and police any litter I may or may not generate. As per relocating, I realize that I can't have everything and the important thing is that I have a job that pays enough to feed, clothe and put a roof over my family. Again thank you for the great links and input.

I don't know anything about Duluth, however we moved to Dunwoody almost 4 years ago from Orange County, CA. You've mentioned schools are important to you and you need to do some research on the schools here. I would much rather have my kids in the OC schools we were zoned for than our public school here. Also, Dunwoody schools are possibly going to be rezoned (again) in the '11-'12 school year. Schools are way overcrowded, kids get one recess, lunch starts at 10 a.m., the school year starts Aug. 9th this year, the air conditioning is sub par and with the heat and humidity here - the classrooms are unbearable.

Yes, most homes here are big and on big lots. Keep in mind it costs a lot to maintain - not everything is cheaper in Georgia.

Best of luck to you!

Roswell's Department of recreation offerings are expansive. You can download their brochure from their website. There are some private companies that offer after school programs at area schools that include lego robotics, CSI, art drawing, chess, gymnastics and what not. Georgia state offers weekend enrichment classes to children who are classified as gifted. Dunwoody has an art center with tons of classes. John's Creek has an art center but with no where near the number of classes as Dunwoody. The Baptist Church in Dunwoody has many athletic programs including a fitness center with indoor saline pool. A good place to find activities for your kids is Atlanta parent. Some schools in the Atlanta area have science olympiad which is a fabulous program.

208Happystreet,

Thank you for the informative post. I checked out Roswell via the net, and it looks like a great place. Unfortunatly it is just a wee bit too far north. I have learned that going South on 400 can be a pain in the mornings. I actually was looking at doing a combo car / Marta hop. That would be pushing the comute into an hour a bit less. Of course 30 minutes of that would be on Marta, and in theory I would be able to crack open the laptop or read to prep for the day's work. If the schools are fair enough in Dunwoody my wife and I will limit our search to that area. Lastly, I found a lost elementary school mate who lives in John's Creek. His daughter is enrolled in private school, but he still likes the area. Again thank you. After doing some assisted research, I find GA to quite nice. Of course I haven't had to deal with the heat and humitity yet, but on paper GA looks as sweet as a peach.
