I always get a kick out of people complaining about Atlanta traffic. When I was there last May, traffic was a piece of cake. I was expecting NYC-type traffic from what people describe.

I drove from Charlotte to Alpharetta. I was 85 during peak rush hour. And it was moving! Not 80 mph, but it wasn't a parking lot like I expected.

The next day we went from our hotel in Alpharetta down to the Aquarium and it took about 30 minutes - maybe a little less. We got up at the crack of dawn so we would have at least an hour to get to the Aquarium and we got there well before we could get in! This was during the morning rush hour commute.

Nothing like hitting a highway that has 7 or 8 lanes going the same way and not knowing it's going to happen! That was an experience. We don't have that where I live and it was interesting! I get to do it all over again in June. Love going to Atlanta.
