Hello all,

I've been reading a lot of relo threads and was wondering what the average commute time is from Kennesaw to the northern 75/285 junction? Say I leave by 7:00 am...?

We're relocating in a couple of weeks and looking at the northwest area. We were originally looking at condos in the smyrna/vinings area to be near where I work, but there just aren't any kids for my kids to play with. So I think I'm going to have to bite the bullet and move to the burbs, just so the wife and kids are happy.

Thanks for any input.

in the heat of rush hour, I'd say about 45 minutes to an hour, but at 7 i'd say 30-45 minutes.

I do exactly that every morning, but I'm usually on the road by about 6:30 AM, and then it generally takes 15-20 minutes. If I'm much later, I'm really sitting there. Leaving at 7, count on 30 minutes if there are no accidents or other obstructions.

Now, you didn't say how far you are from 75. I live immediately off 575 so it's a piece of cake, but depending on where you are, it might take you another 15 or 20 minutes just to get to 75. I'm so sorry you can't live closer to work, it is a bear!

Well I'm looking at purchasing a home in Annandale legacy park. My wife likes pushing the kids in a stroller, walking, fitness etc., and it looks like they have a lot of that there.

So basically my commute would be from Annandale to Parkwood circle. It looks like Annandale LP is pretty close to the 75. Do you know anything about that community? Do they have a fitness center there?

Thanks!

Legacy Park is a very nice planned community. There are perhaps 10 different neighborhoods within the park. I have been there many times. I'm not sure about an actual fitness center, but they do have a community center, pool, tennis, walking trails through woods, the works. They have lots of community activities. It's very nice, in a sterile kind of way, which is probably a good thing for a young family. But yes, you will have to add 15-20 minutes to your commute time just to get to 75. There is one way in and out of Legacy Park, and it's on a two-lane road. They have built shopping centers along this road, they have built more subdivisions, and this road is a pain! There is an all-way stop at the LP entrance so you'll get in and out OK, but it will take a while. This two-lane road leads to other parts of the area that I have to go to, but I try very hard to avoid it after about 3 PM. Any possibility of telecommuting?

But once you're home, I believe you and your family will really enjoy it!
