I am a young single female who will be relocating to the Atlanta area from Florida. I am working in McDonough and would like to live in a nice, safe area with shopping and restaurants close. I ideally want to be as close to Atlanta as possible in order to enjoy all that the city has to offer. Is it better to live closer to the city and commute to work or live close to work and commute into the city? Any suggestions on areas to live?

Henry County is your best bet for a quick commute to work. In order to get to the city - eh, it cab be tough during high traffic times. But, on uneventful weekends, you should be alright. As you will find out, traffic is a horrible part of life in Atlanta, so try to live as close to your work as possible. There is lots of shopping in Henry and nearby Fayette County for those needs.

Default Live Closer To Work

Living in the McDonough area is really your best bet. You wont have to fight the terrible traffic on I-75 in the mornings and night. Although, you would be opposite of the traffic both ways.

Around McDonough, you have some great housing, shopping and restaurants. Fayette Coiunty is close by with many shopping options as well.

Your drive into the Atlanta for shopping , restaurants, etc is just a hop skip away. Traffic can at times be challenging, but not enough to make you wish you lived in the city.

We have many buyers that have purchased homes in the McDonough area recently and all area pleased with their decisions.

Best of luck to you!
