Enjoy your visit to Atlanta.

You should check out Downtown Roswell. The old mill and waterfall is beautiful.
Roswell is beautiful. I just recently arrived in Woodstock, near the Kenesaw Mountains. Lovely area.

Downtown Woodstock is very cool too. You should definitely check it out!

It's a great example of local New Urbanism.

Didn't realize how White metro Atlanta is.

Yeah, Cherokee County is pretty white. The geography in that part of town is beautiful, but it's too far out for me. I do love Downtown Woodstock, though.

Very interesting. I would never have guessed that Miami's CSA was more populous than Atlanta's. Good information +1
