There's plenty of places that might suit your needs, but we'd need more info to be specific. What do you need as far as employment? Do you want to be near Atlanta? Near the mountains or beach? Do you have a budget for renting/buying?

Heather - how small and how quaint? And how close do you want to be to a city. There are plenty of small, quaint towns around Athens. Do you want shopping and dining close by? What other amenities would you like in the area? Are you buying? Are you renting? Do you want a rural home, a suburb? Maxey's GA I believe still offers a scholarship for kids from that town. What other requirements do you have, it will be much easier to give you more specific answers to this question.

I enthusiastically recommend Newnan, GA which is about 40 miles south of Atlanta right on I-85. I've been displaced numerous times and have had to move to other states for employment. But, when I can, I keep coming back to Newnan (5 times so far). It's one of the few towns that general Sherman did not burn during the Civil Was. It's filled with old southern mansions, quaint town square with restaurants and shops, trees, friendly people (even to a Yankee like me from Pittsburgh, PA), and reasonably prices homes (100-500k) with shopping nearby.

I recommend Flowery Branch. I just moved here from Gainesville, it's nice. It's nice and quiet yet there's shopping and restaurants here and even more 15 minutes away in Gainesville. It's about 40 minutes from north of Atlanta. You aren't too far from the mountains in Dawson County and Dahlonega. You have lake access, plenty of shopping within reach in Buford (which has the Mall of Georgia), etc. I love Flowery Branch.
