Atlanta is definitely more centrally located to the region than Charlotte, but Charlotte's not too far out of the way. If you look at the attached map, it's pretty easy to see that the geographic center of this region is in Georgia, somewhat close to Augusta actually. That would be my choice if it were a bigger city with a bigger, busier airport (and a north-south interstate).

After looking at the flights going out of the various airports in this region, I see that I almost have to choose a suburb of either Charlotte or Atlanta. I didn't realize the smaller airports have no direct flights connecting each other, they only connect through ATL or CLT. So that narrows the field, in fact I'll need to choose a suburb of one of those two cities that puts me less than 50 miles' drive from ATL or CLT. Still interested in schools, big yard in a neighborhood but bonus if the area is wooded or somewhat hilly. (More fun for yard projects that way.)

What is your budget? Are you looking for diversity, access to transit? In Atlanta, you could live near the MARTA train line (or far and drive to the train station) and take the train directly to the airport for $2.50 one way!

Conyers is growing like crazy and is East of Atlanta. If you are looking for great schools, then you will need to look into Forsyth, Fayette, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton or Gwinnett Counties in metro Atlanta.

Fayette:
1. Fayetteville
2. Peachtree City (Peachtree City, GA - Official Website)

Cobb:
1. Marietta
2. East Cobb (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/East_Cobb,_Georgia)
3. Kennesaw
4. Acworth
5. Austell

Fulton:
1. Alpharetta (Alpharetta, Georgia)
2. Milton
3. Roswell
4. Sandy Springs
5. Chattahoochee Hills (Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chatta...Hills,_Georgia)

DeKalb:
1. Dunwoody
2. Decatur (City of Decatur, GA : Home)

Forsyth:
1. Cumming (City of Cumming - Located in Forsyth County, Georgia)

Gwinnett:
1. Suwanee (Welcome to Suwanee, Georgia)
2. Buford
3. Grayson
4. Duluth
5. Lawrenceville
6. Dacula

Some cheaper areas near (South) the airport to consider:
1. Coweta County (Sharpsburg) or (Senoia - Senoia, GA: Official website of the City of Senoia, Georgia) or (Newnan)

**I included links to areas that I think you will like without seeing your budget in the Atlanta area**

I recommend Atlanta.

Based on your other criteria, I recommend the suburbs in Coweta County, Fayette County, and Henry County. These are south metro/southside suburbs offering a great quality of life and easier access to the airport.

Specifically:

In Coweta County--
1. The Northgate High Cluster
2. The East Coweta High Cluster
3. The Newnan High Cluster


In Henry County--
1. The Union Grove High Cluster
2. The Ola High Cluster
3. The Woodland High Cluster
4. The Locust Grove High Cluster


In Fayette County--
1. The Whitewater High Cluster
2. The McIntosh High Cluster
3. The Starr's Mill High Cluster
4. The Sandy Creek High Cluster
5. The Fayette County High Cluster
