Out of the areas of Roswell, Alpharetta & Johns Creek, which area do you think would be best for a couple in their early 30s without children? Commute times are not as important as quality of life, safety, good places to eat, outdoor recreation, etc.

We would need to know what type of home you want, what your budget is, and what types of things you would want to be around to have the quality of life you are looking for in order to make a suggestion.

I'd say Alpharetta, though West Roswell is very nice. John's Creek isn't bad either. They're all very similar.

The only way commute times are not important in those areas is if you DON'T HAVE ONE!

Seriously, if you need to go south on 400, consider moving closer. 400 is a nightmare in both directions now. Many of the east-west roads up there are still one lane in each direction. If there is any way to take a dry run, please do so and get a good look at the commuting picture. Good luck!

I live in Alpharetta off exit 9 and work in Midtown and the traffic is not that bad as everyone says...in the morning, I early at 6:45 and am at my desk in 45-50 minutes but the evenings are a little better...I leave between 5 and 5:30 and normally 40 minutes and 400 moves...I was terriied as well and was pleasantly surprised at how relatively good it is.
