I'm moving South of Atlanta and will be working in Peachtree City. I don't want to limit my housing search, and thought maybe I could live in South Atlanta and commute to Peachtree City. This way I'd be going against traffic.

How is the traffic on I-85 going against typical rush-hour traffic? Also, any good neighborhoods (good schools, low crime, etc.) that are South of Atlanta?

Are you wanting to look for a location in the southern part of the city, or other suburbs on the southside?

Next, for purposes of safety, I really must know whether you are white or black, in order to give my opinion on perhaps a good fit for you.

Well, you'll be working in one of the best candidates for your needs...Peachtree City.
Consider Newnan, too.

I'm not sure what you are considering "South of Atlanta". Like inside the city still or outside the perimeter? Do you have a family? or are you looking for more of a city/night life?

I commute from South Atlanta down I-85 South and can attest that my commute is wonderful. While northbound is bumper-to-bumper - south bound is flying! On the way home - traffic is great as well up until about I-20. I'm in the Grant Park area - which is a great intown neighborhood. and worth checking out.

But Peachtree City is South of Atlanta - so if I were working there - I'd consider living there too.
