Augusta, Macon and Columbus may seem fast paced when compared to places like Ludowici.. but none of them have a "hustle and bustle" feel of a big city.

On what planet is Atlanta not fast paced?

You do realize that a large section of Downtown exists solely for the State and Federal government offices, right? Another large part of it exists solely for business offices. There are more people in Downtown during the day than at night because they just work there. It's like saying "I went to New York City and Wall Street was so DEAD after 6pm" and basing all you know about New York City life on that. Same thing with L.A., it's downtown is dead after night because it's mostly a business center, but who in the world would base their opinion of L.A. city life around it's downtown?

Not all of Downtown is dead after 6pm, particularly the Peachtree Center section and the area around Centennial Park/CNN Center, but that's a moot point. The entertainment districts where you will find Atlanta's city/night life are in Midtown, Atlantic Station, Buckhead, L5P, Virginia-Highlands, Poncey Highlands, East Atlanta, Castleberry Hill, and tons of more areas around the city.

I don't think that lilmusket considers these areas 'downtown'. I know I don't. He specifically said DOWNTOWN, so what's the problem?

Because I perceived that lilmusket and king_x were insinuating that because Downtown mostly empties out after dark that it is synonymous with ALL of Atlanta being "slow paced". If I am incorrect, my bad, but...

I didn't interpret it that way. His comments seemed to be limited to downtown, and his perception is a common one.

LOL I googled 'Ludowici Entertainment' and the best they could come up with were the local TV listings and a movie multiplex in Hinesville. Sounds about right.

Ludowici is my favorite Georgia city name.. I always use it in examples. It was made infamous in the 1970s for their speed trap.

really annoying...
So? What's the big deal? More than half the State DOES live here. Just correct them, tell them where you do live, and move on.
