Hello everybody! Im a 33yr old single mother of 2 kids (10 & 7). I'm an airline supervisor in Phoenix, AZ. I have a job offer in Augusta and Atlanta. I want diversity and culture for my kids. I would like to move to a suburban area near Atlanta or Augusta. I'm looking into 225k- 250k homes.

I can't speak to Augusta, but if you're looking at the Atlanta option, a lot will depend on where exactly the job is located. The Atlanta metro is a huge area with some serious traffic, so you need to consider your commute.

This is like comparing apples and oranges.. Metro Atlanta is like 12 times larger than metro Augusta.. so it is going to have more diversity and culural offerings. The more sought after suburbs in metro Atlanta are on the northside.. Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, East Cobb, Roswell, Alpharetta, Johns Creek, and Duluth among others.
As far as Augusta goes, the more sought after burbs are on the westside, Evans and Martinez in Columbia County and West Augusta in Richmond County. North Augusta, SC is also getting a lot of attention.

I guess it all boils down to whether you like a bigger metropolitan area or a smaller one. There's going to be more to do in Atlanta. Augusta is going to have cheaper housing though.
