That info is great Tikigod! I've been to that Kroger's in PTC, but regular grocery stores don't have the funkier vegetarian stuff--or at least not a great selection--like the fake meats and such. Love the farmers market recommendations. I will definitely check that stuff out.

As someone who lived in PTC for close to 20 years (my teens and 20's ) and who has brothers who are both in their 30's and living at home there, I would say stick closer to Atlanta. My brothers go into Atlanta every time they go out socially and since you say you like the urban lifestyle I would say go closer to the city. The closest public transit to PTC is about 15 to 20 miles away(a bus line) and most all of the singles bars and restaurants are going to be closer to the city. I would recommend midtown Atlanta, Decatur (Dekalb Farmers Market is great for a vegetarian lifestyle) or if you want a shorter commute, look into downtown East Point, downtown College Park, or Hapeville.

Cabbagetown is actually a pretty solid option for a southbound commute. Hop on I-20 from Boulevard and you'll be southbound on the Connector in no time. Inman Park would be pretty good for this too.

With Midtown, you'll often have to fight through traffic for 5-10 minutes to get on the interstate, then fight down to the I-20 interchange, which really adds to the overall commute difficulty. It sounds like Midtown is best given what you're looking for as a neighborhood, but it just isn't super convenient for counter-commuting, given that its own surface streets are often clogged with office workers during rush hour.

And yeah, I'm 28 but I wouldn't consider living in PTC, and I grew up there. I respect the place for what it is, but I'm very liberal and social: those offerings are limited in PTC.

Another option, as mentioned, is East Point/College Park/Hapeville. Higher crime areas, to be sure, but they have their own little scene down there, it's closer to PTC by 15 minutes, it's cheaper, and the towns themselves have some nice things about them. But you're definitely not in Atlanta's social mainstream if you move to these areas; you'll get funny looks when you tell people where you live.
