Thinking about moving to St Simons for low crime, raising a family, etc...however, worried St Simons is too small/boring compared to Atlanta. Has anyone lived in both places?

I live in Atlanta nine months and SSI for three...a great arrangement. I have a lot of Atlanta friends down there whose only regret was that they didn't make the move sooner. It is truly an idyllic existence. Obviously, it doesn't move at the same pace as Atlanta, but it has a wide array of restaurants, good shopping, recreation, regular concerts at Neptune Park and a pretty good local theater company (Island Players).
House prices there are comparable to what you would find in Buckhead and other established intown neighborhoods. Check the MLS and you'll find that SFHs (and condos, for that matter) quickly hit the seven figures.
