Hi, After searching through the suburbs we have found Johns Creek. Any ideas how long the commute would be to the Vinings? Thanks Christie

That will be a long commute in both directions. Will you be able to travel during non-peak times? If it's during peak times, it will be at least 45 minutes, but probably more like 1 hour and potentially worse for the drive home. 400 (N and S) will be the worst part, and for coming home, 285 E will be a pain as well.

I agree with wxjay about the commute! I did it for 3 years. It was horrible. Now I live in NW Atlanta and work from Home--yay!

yes, my husband thinks he can leave at 6 AM and get there before traffic. I'm pretty worried about it. We looked at the Smyrna area and even Roswell. It wasn't suburban enough for us and I'm not sure we would be happy there. We loved Alpharetta and he says he's prepared for the commute. But I'm not sure he realises how bad its really going to be. Feel like I'm between a rock and a hard place. I was looking forward to moving to Atlanta but I'm not keen on the Smyrna area because the subdivisions are nice but a lot of the roads leading to them were scary.

Good Luck!...You're gonna need it...

It's going to be at least an hour without traffic. Seeing as he'll be able to leave extremely early he should be able to miss most traffic. However, if there was a wreck on 400, or it was raining, he's looking at least an hour and a half or more...

There is a reason I live 2.2 miles from my office. It's 3 turns, and I love it!

A nightmare, for sure...

A few times a month my husband commutes from the northeast area of Johns Creek to the intersection of 400 and 285 (still a good distance from Vinings) and it takes him 50 minutes. In rain, it takes even longer. He leaves for work at 7 am and comes home around 5 or 5:30. Without traffic, you're still looking at an hour at least.
