28 minutes is reasonable. As for where to live, it depends on how much you plan to take advantage of the rest of what Atlanta has to offer.

I am personally a Smyrna fan because of its proximty to Buckhead, Downtown, Perimeter etc and easy access to 75 and 285. If your personal life is not going to take you in that direction than you can head west toward Douglasville.

The further west you go, the more house for your money you will likely get.

Thank you for letting me know that IS an accurate time.

We are not going to go into Atlanta often. It will be for special occasions, art, museum etc.

We will definately be apartment dwellers (Sarasota all but ruined us here housing/financially). Is there any place in between that might have a charming downtown (like Marietta) or the winding hills and trees of Smyrna?

Thanks

Smyrna has a very charming downtown area, especially in the last 5 years since City Market was built near the library/courthouse/police/fire station area. Doesn't have the history of the Marietta square, but Smyrna leadership has done a phenomenal job in remaking downtown Smyrna over the 17 years that I've lived here.

Smyrna hosts 3 free summer concerts that are packed and almost have a small-town community feel to them. We reserve a couple of tables every summer for our neighbors/friends. Plus, Smyrna has a great park in Taylor-Brawner and free "movie on the green" nights.

The Jonquil festival, Smyrna produce market, Twisted Taco, and Silver Comet are all Smyrna favorites of our family, too.
